2. Ace of Base - 'Life is A Flower'

'Total cringe one but it never fails to make me smile! Does that make me sound like a geek?' 

Tor Cardona, Beauty and Web Co-Ordinator

3.  Rihanna - 'What's My Name?' ft. Drake

'I love the video to this song, it's really cute and totally makes me want to get up and dance. Plus, this for me, was when RiRi's hair looked best. Who wouldn't want a bit of that siren red?'

Sophie Haslett, Digital Writer

4. Rudimental - 'Feel The Love' ft. John Newman

'This song sums up that happy summer feeling. I played it over and over and over on a road trip so every time I hear it, it takes me back to singing in the car in the sunshine. Bliss.'

Jessica Vince, Digital Editor

5. Dolly Parton - 'Your Love Keeps Lifting Me (Higher)'

'It always gives me the hysterical giddy feeling of dancing terribly with my mum at a family wedding.'
