Music | Bonfire playlist

Tracks to reflect the high spirits of everyone watching the fireworks, this playlist is perfect for any bonfire soirée.


Burning Heart – James Blunt

The third track from his brand new album Moon Landing; the song was co-written and produced with OneRepublic’s Ryan Tedder which adds a more folkier element than Blunt is known for.


AfterGlow – Wilkinson 

This bass-infused song with an up tempo beat can be added to the London based producer’s lengthy archive of successful releases.


Counting Stars – OneRepublic

Irrevocably catchy and poetically written, Counting Stars is full of life and a must-have on any party playlist this month.


My Songs Know What You Did In The Dark (Light Em up) – Fall Out Boy

After a four year hiatus Fall Out Boy have returned stronger than ever with this experimentally sounding more aggressive rock attitude compared to their older music.


You’re Nobody ‘Til Somebody Loves You – James Arthur

A pop-rock inspired song that is very popular with the mainstream world. The laid back, blues-rock feel is maximized by the ensemble of lead guitar and a brass accomplice.


Firework – Katy Perry

Although three years old this song was undoubtedly written to be added to every bonfire playlist to boost everyone’s spirits before a night out.


Burn – Ellie Goulding

One of Goulding’s less melancholy tracks, Burn is uplifting and angelic which perfectly matches the British singer’s unique vocal style.


Girls/Girls/Boys – Panic! At The Disco

From Panic!’s recently released album Too Weird To Live Too Young To Die!, the quite racy song includes a satisfying bass line and expected lyrical genius Urie is famous for.
