MTV.co.uk has launched an X Factor babe Tulisa to name the tracks she’d put in her ultimate video list.
Prodigy – Smack My Bitch Up
“I love this video. I just think it’s really clever, a really rebellious song, with a really rebellious video – everything that Tulisa is about!
“It’s a real movie soundtrack for me, like one of the those that’s so motivational, whenever I hear it, whenever I’m going into fighting mode, like about to go onstage, or just visualizing something I have to do or something I have to achieve, whenever I hear this song it just completely, utterly motivates me to do what I have to do.”
All Saints - Pure Shores
“This is when I want to focus on all the positive things that I want to do, like where I wanna be in 5 years time from now. When I find happiness that’s the song that I put on and I visualize it and I visualize it and visualize it in the hope that, you know what they say, if you believe it and see it, then it’ll happen.”
Modjo – Lady (Hear Me Tonight)
“This is just a really old skool classic, sexy song that reminds me of Ibiza and being in the sun and holidays and romance. It’s just a real feel good summer anthem for me.”
Kate Nash – Mouthwash
“I love Kate Nash. I’m a humungous Kate Nash fan. I think she’s so intelligent and quirky with her writing and this song for me, even though its quite up-tempo, I find it quite emotional for some reason. It’s just the lyrics, the way she structures the song and I just think she’s a bit of a genius really when it comes to music. I just really appreciate that song.”
“This has more of a jokey theme behind it. Me and [friend and PA] Gareth, when we went to work for a long period of time in LA and Miami, we heard this song in the UK and absolutely loved it so when we got out to the States it was our ‘get up in the morning’ anthem ‘cos I get quite homesick and don’t necessary like being away.
“We get this real positive thinking moment, like ‘hey we’re in America, this is fun and we’re hanging out with all these cool people. You’ve just got to get up everyday and just live life, this is where everyone wants to be so let’s not complain about it.’
“So we would start the day and I would say ‘DJ run the rhythm” to Gareth and he would press play on his iPad and we would do this dance in the mirror, side by side and that was how we would wake up every morning on our journey!”
Livin’ Joy – Dreamer
I’m an Ibiza baby. If there was a movie of my life songs like that would definitely be on the soundtrack with shots of me clubbing and going mad. [This track] for me is a representation of my Ibiza baby roots and my party island.”
I love a bit of 80s. I just absolutely love this beat and I always said if there’s an 80s tune that I would like to remix and do a modern day version of it would have to be Fleetwood Mac – Little Lies. I still haven’t got round to doing it yet but it’ll come!”
Boyz II Men – Can You Stand The Rain
This is like my romantic song of all time. Whenever I’ve been in love throughout my life I have to play this song ‘cos it’s like my dream song. When I get married I want Boyz II Men to sing Can You Stand The Rain as I walk down the aisle or for my first dance– it’s my favourite love song.”
“This is another bit of a motivational one for me. I find it quite a dark track so when I’m like in deep thought about something or dealing with things, I just wanna put my headphones on and get in my car and drive and just be like ‘hey piss off world!’ - that’s the song that I put on and just rock out to it in my own little world.”
Kariya – Let Me Love You For Tonight
“Again this is going really old skool. It’s the same with Dreamer but even further back, so it’s my kind of respect to the old skool.
“The fact that I absolutely love that song and I’ll turn around in my car and play that song now and there’ll be like people my age that won’t know it but people older than me being ‘how do you know about this tune?!’ and I’m like come on.”
