Number 3. Vance Joy – Riptide

Catchy, melodic, whistle-along Indie-pop jam and it’s still bouncing around my head 8 months later. Its a bit of a see-saw of a song, diving back and forth from whimsical to punch-packing. Just when you think the lyrics are taking you down a deep and moving path they swoop back to being light-heartedly ironic. Kind of like me.

‘I love you when you’re singing that song and
I got a lump in my throat because
You’re gonna sing the words wrong’

Pout your lips and get your whistle on.
