Hold It Against Me by Britney Spears
Listen/Buy

Mix together Britney, Max Martin and a dubstep break and you get the first bonkers amazing pop single of 2011. Breakdowns, divorce, autotune – Britney is still better than you.

 
I'm The Fool by Sound Girl
Listen/Buy

Debut single from a new Mercury act that I’m stupidly excited about. Some of the demo tracks remind me of 3LW. If you don’t know who 3LW are it’s unlikely we’ll be able to be friends.

 
White Nights by Oh Land
Listen/Buy

Oh Land could be that (annoyingly) rare thing – a Scandinavian act that connects with a UK audience. She has proper melodies but is also cool enough to be played on UK radio – keeping my Scandi-loving fingers crossed for her.

 
Finest Thing By Pleasure
Listen/Buy

My favourite track of Pleasure’s aka Fred Ball. Bells and whistles pop music has its place (most places that I am in fairness) but SOMETIMES melancholy rules the day and this is melancholic pop brilliance at its best.

 
Intergalactic Spell By Alphabeat vs. Beastie Boys
Listen/Buy

Ever wondered what Beastie Boys would sound like rapping over an Alphabeat track? YOU DON’T HAVE TO.

 
2 Become 1 By The Spice Girls.
Listen/Buy

The Spice Girls made me fall in love with pop music – I doubt I’d be working in the industry today if it wasn’t for them. This is not just their best ballad but the best ballad OF ALL TIME – no arguments please.
