Top 50 Indie Tunes Of All Time


Everyone knows that feeling. You listen to a tune for the first time. You might’ve had your first kiss with your SO to that song or might’ve listened to it whilst you were roadtripping through Europe. Music is beautiful. Music doesn’t need cameras to capture moments.

Everyone has certain songs that bring out memories and you go ‘ Aw, do you remember that time we were getting ready and had pre-drinks and were dancing in our knickers around the kitchen?!’ Yes – I am talking about these kinda moments that you will forever cherish and always remember and they are always connected to a tune. Anyway, you get what I’m trying to say, riiiight?!
