Your Songs [Universal]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Jon O'Brien
Following My Songs, Essential Songs, and Weekend Songs, the UMTV label returns with yet another uplifting, radio-friendly compilation, Your Songs. Presumably inspired by Ellie Goulding's recent, faithful cover version of the Elton John classic (which is unsurprisingly included here), this two-CD, 40-track collection focuses on the kind of contemporary universal hits that are loved equally by different generations with a few random golden oldies thrown into the mix as well.

Following My Songs, Essential Songs, and Weekend Songs, the UMTV label returns with yet another uplifting, radio-friendly compilation, Your Songs. Presumably inspired by Ellie Goulding's recent, faithful cover version of the Elton John classic (which is unsurprisingly included here), this two-CD, 40-track collection focuses on the kind of contemporary universal hits that are loved equally by different generations with a few random golden oldies thrown into the mix as well. Ever-presents Take That ("The Flood"), Snow Patrol ("Chasing Cars"), and Coldplay ("Fix You") predictably appear in addition to airplay staples from James Morrison & Nelly Furtado ("Broken Strings"), Eliza Doolittle ("Pack Up"), and Scouting for Girls ("She's So Lovely"), and recent modern standards from Adele ("Make You Feel My Love"), Florence + the Machine ("You've Got the Love"), and Amy Winehouse ("Back to Black"). But although the list of artists will be familiar to most listeners, the selection of songs isn't always so obvious. One Republic's Tommy Hilfiger-advertised epic ballad "Secrets" makes the cut ahead of Top 40 hit "All the Right Moves," Pixie Lott's "Can't Make This Over" is chosen instead of any one of her six Top 20 singles, and there are also lesser-known tracks from established artists such as Amy McDonald ("Love Love"), Jamiroquai ("Blue Skies"), and Duffy (flop comeback single "Well Well Well"), alongside perhaps the first introduction for many to Irish rockabilly revivalist Imelda May ("Mayhem"). Elsewhere, there are number ones past and present from Shakespeare's Sister ("Stay"), Ronan Keating ("If Tomorrow Never Comes"), and B.o.B ft. Hayley Williams ("Airplanes"), and an array of retro-classics from the '60s (Nina Simone's "Feeling Good"), the '70s (Michael Jackson's "One Day in Your Life"), the '80s (Tears for Fears' "Mad World"), and the '90s (Paul Weller's "You Do Something to Me"). Your Songs isn't the most inventive compilation you'll hear this year, but with its decade-spanning and chart-friendly track list, it should have something for most commercial tastes.
