Four Feed Limmy playlists you will adore

I am obsessed with creating themed playlists on Spotify. I don’t go more than two days without some form of alcohol touching my lips and I don’t go more than two days without updating a playlist.

So here are four of my favourite and, I suppose, well liked Spotify playlists.

5 Seconds of Summer ‘She Looks So Perfect’

Meteorologists have predicted this chart storm for months and now the thunder from Down Under is finally reigning on top the UK iTunes chart.

5 Seconds of Summer She Looks So Perfect

5 Seconds of Summer‘s proper debut single ‘She Looks So Perfect’ stormed the digital charts today, a month after the video hit YouTube.

The Australian pop rock band already saw the track become an instant hit when it debuted at #3 on the ARIA singles chart last month.

Luke, Michael, Calum and Ashton have been performing together for the past four years but things didn’t really begin to accelerate until they opened for One Direction on the monstrous Take Me Home Tour last year. The boys have been confirmed to support 1D on tour again this year so we can probably expect to see them become chart regulars in the coming months.

5SOS could potentially be the new generation’s Busted crossed with Good Charlotte, and they could well be spearheading a return to punk-driven pop on our charts. Remember a time when Avril Lavigne, Good Charlotte and Blink 182 were all over the airwaves?

I mean, even One Direction‘s moving with a rockier sound these days.

5SOS has written over 100 tracks for their forthcoming debut album, which is yet to be finalised. Some where in that vast hard drive of tunes will be collabos with Good Charlotte‘s Madden brothers and Alex Gaskarth from All Time Low.

Some key players who are helping 5SOS pull together their album include producer John Feldmann (who has worked with Panic at The Disco and The Veronicas) and English producer Steve Robson (who was crafted hits for Olly Murs and One Direction).

Watch 5 Seconds of Summer‘s ‘She Looks So Perfect’, which has ticked over 7 million views in a month.

5 Seconds of Summer‘s ‘She Looks So Perfect’ EP is out now with three additional tracks: ‘Heartache on The Big Screen’, ‘The Only Reason’ and ‘What I Like About You’.

I left y’all scratching at the post a little last week because I took my ass on a little vacaycay to Brisbane.

Bitch, you should’ve seen me lounging on the beach in an island that was practically deserted on a Monday arvo. I was having a Mariah moment frolicking in the sand, trying to look cute for my Instagram photos. But hey, I am back now and here comes your chart feed – which might cover some things I didn’t get to touch on last week.

This has been a good week for Robbie Williams who scored his first simulatenous UK #1 album-and-single action in 11 years. Elsewhere, the following chart showboaters can’t complain either: Taylor SwiftCalvin Harris, Little Mix, Of Monsters and Men, The Wanted, and to a certain extent, Christina Aguilera. SAY!

“Oppa gangnam style!” *drops the beat*

CHART FEED

You know when your parents start to recognise a internet viral music video that it’s well and truly time for everyone else to move on.

It has been a tremendous week for K-pop sensation PSY‘s ‘Gangnam Style’, not only is it officially the most ‘liked’ video in the history of the internet – the track has also successfully topped the Australian and UK charts to become the first Korean pop single to do so.

Its crossover chart success in the Western market is just mind-blowing, no doubt bringing a whole lot of national pride for South Koreans everywhere.

Elsewhere, it has also been a great week for Pink, Mumford and Sons, Conor Maynard, Brandy and Christina “I think you already know my weight!” Aguilera.

Remember back when it was kinda uncool to be “launched from a reality TV show”?
