Dedication Song: See You Again

20th September 2015 | Music

Each week on Therapy with Thomas Mills, Thomas chooses a song which means something and can teach us a lesson. He calls it his 'Dedication Song'.

This week, that song was See You Again (feat. Charlie Puth) by Charlie Puth.

Whilst this song is directly about losing someone you love because they have died – it is a song which resonates on many different levels of ‘loss’. Losing somebody – whether that’s just a sibling moving out of the house for the first time, a friend moving country or simply losing a friend through an argument – can be the most difficult emotion to tackle, understand and go through. You feel like what you had will never be there again, an era has ended. An era you loved. The most important to always remember is that memories live on and if new eras don’t begin, the earth will stop spinning.

Playlist: Take That (Sunday 19th)

20th September 2015 | Music

Take That take to the Apple Music Festival stage on Night 2 of this internationally streamed event. Now down to three members (after Robbie Williams and, more recently, Jason Orange departed the band), the band have reinvented themselves with latest album 'III' which introduces a new, poppier vibe.

We've compiled a playlist of 5 of our favourite Take That songs that we hope we'll hear during their set at the Apple Music Festival.

These Days

New single 'These Days' needs to make it onto the set within at least the first 5 songs. The new, poppier sound has been a hit with audiences recently and, if the band want to make the show sound anything other than a 'Greatest Hits' show, a lot of the new music will be played.

Kidz

Okay, it's not as good as Robbie William's similarly named collaboration with Kylie Minogue ('Kids') but, again, it's that new sound that we're dying to hear. Plus, it'll get us dancing and that's as good as anything. For some reason, though, we don't think it's going to make the set list.

Greatest Day

If Take That are going to make this the Greatest Day of our lives, this song will make the cut. There isn't anybody on this planet who hates this ballad. We'd love to see how many of the long notes Gazza can still hit and if confetti still comes from the ceiling during this number like it used to. Either way, it's partly responsible for their meteoric return in 2008.

Shine

Around the same time as Greatest Day came out, Shine did as well. For many of us, it was the first real taste of Take That we'd had apart from our parent's…

Review: Ellie Goulding (Saturday 19th)

20th September 2015 | Music

As the clock counts from 50 seconds to 40 seconds to 30 seconds to 20 seconds to 10 seconds to 0. The Apple Music Festival has started.

The first artist to headline the festival is Ellie Goulding, the pop princess who first gained notoriety after toping the BBC’s “Sound of…” poll in 2010 – leading to her debut studio album, ‘Lights’, debuting at the top of the charts.

The set opens with a compilation video of some of what a standard Ellie Goulding show should look like – adoring fans, lots of dancing and, of course, drums. If the next hour and a half is going to teach us anything, it’s that Ellie LOVES the drums.

As the music video ends, the rather vague music slowly turns into the familiar opening of her hit Calvin Harris-collaboration, ‘Outside’. The opening song gives us a proper taste of what is to come – and it involves a lot of dancing. When Ellie performs it looks more like a party than a concert.

A party where Miss. Goulding is the centre of attention, at all times.

Through-out the set, the female vocalist truly shows her versatility as a recording artist – mixing her set with club bangers such as ‘Goodness Gracious’ and ‘I Need Your Love’ with pop centred ‘Starry Eyes’ and ‘Figure 8’ and even a hint of slower ballads ‘Your Song’ and ‘Joy’.

It takes the audience some time to warm up to Ellie and, until ‘Starry Eyed’ (track 5 in her setlist), most of the audience are taking turns making sure they’re updated on Twitter.

The real moment when the metaphorical poo hits the metaphorical fan is near the end of her main set when ‘Anything Could Happen’ is played.

Before then,…
