He seems to have become the unofficial face of The Stag Company this week as this is the second article on the blog this week following on from his interview with Rich, Tommy ‘Two Shoes’ Roberts is here again but this time he is providing you with our weekly Stag Party Playlist! Tommy jumped at the chance to choose ten of his favourite tracks, in fact I think his exact words were ‘I’m going to pick some BANGERS’. But did he though? There is only one way to find out, on with the playlist, complete with useful comments from the man himself:
One Direction - Best Song Ever (You can't not love One Direction) – I’m not in agreement on the ‘you can’t not love One Direction’ suggestion but they churn out some well written pop songs, so sure let’s have this one in there for a bit of a sing song. Speaking of One Direction, did anyone see that crazy programme last night? If you missed it catch up on 4od here.
Naughty Boy - La La La (Bit late in appreciating this track, the Chipmunk remix is also a huge tune.) – Another well written tune here and Sam Smith has featured on other tracks recently, most notably ‘Latch’ by Disclosure.
Eliza Doolittle - Big When I Was Little (Probably doesn't help I have a massive crush on her, but this is a tune) – I wasn’t too hot on Eliza’s old stuff but her vocal on that HUGE Disclosure tune earlier this summer was way better than anything I’d heard. Good to see her own material is getting better too.
Holy Grail - Jay Z and JT (Anything with these 2 in is going to be an almighty banger) – Tommy gets it right on the money here, Jay Z + JT = GREATNESS. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2YcIgow6TDk
Man Overboard - Heart Attack (Great band from New Jersey, USA. New Album is a great listen.) - Great song, well written and really fun to listen to!
A Day To Remember - All Signs Point To Lauderdale (Seen this band a few times, great song to lose my sh*t too) – Tom’s right, great band to see live and lose it to, but also great for a car journey or just about any other scenario
Bring Me The Horizon - Hospital for Souls (New Album is great, it’s an acquired taste but a great record) – A band that have grown and matured over the course of their career, it might not be up your street but it’s still a great song.
You Me At Six - Save it for the Bedroom (Good friends of mine and this brings back amazing memories, I was even in the original video) – Another pop number which is great for those of you that love a good old singsong with the lads.
Ben E King - Stand By Me (Little bit of a plug, I have a video on YouTube of me and friend singing this, over 10,000 views) – Stone cold classic. Nothing else to say, except maybe don't watch Tom's version.
Lethal Bizzle - Leave it Yeah Remix (LEAVVVEEEEEEEEEEE ITTTTTTTTTTTTTTT………..yeah) – If you like it grimey then you know Lethal B will deliver. Definitely don’t leave this one off your playlist! Not a bad playlist there from Tom, a nice mix of styles and sounds that will make a great soundtrack for your stag do, or even just a lads night out!
