Not only have we the top 10 Irish charted music there is also this weeks Gigs Ireland #PlayIrish featured artist Royseven, a band best known for their song ‘We Should be Lovers’, but I chose to feature ‘Sidelines’ instead. A song they recorded for the RTE show ‘The Hit’ written by Stephen Walker & Ed Kelly. Unfortunately for me my pals have since disbanded in 2014 leaving me with great memories & great music!

Another featured song is Dundalk FMs Listeners Choice requested this week by listener Peter M Smith (Irish artist himself) selecting Sinead O’Connor’s ‘Nothing Compares to You’ as a tribute to the passing of musical genius Prince. It’s her best known song whether she likes it or not! She has vowed never to sing it again so here is Prince singing his version of his song for your listening pleasure:
Last but not least is this weeks coveted ‘One to Watch’ featuring a song that deserves to be charted alongside a chart show & even close the show giving it the best showcase it deserves. This weeks ‘One to Watch’ artist is ’23’. The song is so good it was featured on Dude.ie too HERE
