The Top TenXW

1This Is the Life

Her 2nd single and first major hit, a nice up-lifting acoustic guitar-sounding number and again great vocals.
Have a listen below and check out the video online.

2Don't Tell Me That It's Over

From her 2nd album 'A Curious Thing', it showcases a new heavier rockier sound, with great vocals, I like the build up at the start of the song. 2010.

3Mr. Rock & Roll

Taken from her debut album 'This Is The Life', which sold more than 3 million copies mainly in Europe. This catchy song showcases her great, unique vocal sound and talented guitar playing.

It reached No12 in the UK Charts and is about a man and women who could have got together when they were younger.


Another great poppy-acoustic guitar sound song, like Mr. Rock 'n' Roll and This Is The Life.


A softer sounding acoustic track from her 2012 album 'Life In A Beautiful Light', the music video is beautiful as is Amy Macdonald and so is the song, love the sunset.
