Please suggest songs of "today" - my itunes library is at least 15 years out of date

I don't listen to "modern music" myself

Haven't bought an album in ages Blush -do buy the occasional single that I like from itunes.

Get my kicks from absolute 80s (MNHQ disclaimer: other radio stations are available)

But want to make a playlist that is a bit more "party" and won't leave me completely stuck in 1989 Grin

Songs that have been in my mind as at least this decade as a starting point:
Price Tag JessieJ
Starships Nicki Minaj
Love in a hopeless place Rihanna
quite like that 1direction song that was on Strictly last week but only recognised it cos of GrinBlush

Any more in this vein gratefully received.

do you listen to the radio Olive?

try that you old gimmer

I'm a massive fan of the Now that's what I call music CDs.

Lots of sings for your money, most are easily recognisable and all of them are radio edits, so safe listening. Ace.

Particular faves are:

Calvin Harris
Laws on Blush

I'll probably be back...

plus the radio 1 playlists and the radio 2 playlists offer the chance to sample songs

then scoot over to itunes..

Radio 1 makes me feel OLD

Pinebarrens · 12/10/2013 11:22

so glad you started this I'm back to work on Tuesday after mat leave and also feel like an old gimmer after checking out my ipod last night. lots of Smiths, REM, the Cure etc but I think Jack Johnstone is about the most recent tune. Blush

off to check out the play lists. ..

Pinebarrens · 12/10/2013 11:23

should say I NEED my ipod to get me through the day at work.

RustyBear · 12/10/2013 11:34

I am currently updating mine by wandering around HMV and Shazaming when they play something I like, which gives me the details plus a link to download it from iTunes.

NorbertDentressangle · 12/10/2013 11:44

DD is 13 and on her ipod and, as well as the Now 64774535 type compilations, she has things like Adele, Ed Sheeran and Emili Sande but they are very singer/songwriter-y IYSWIM so maybe not what you want if you want something a bit 'party'.

TheOnlyOliviaMumsnet · 12/10/2013 14:04

Thanks all
Now to get itunes to work properly
