Emily Laing: 5 Songs That Influenced Me


Emily Laing: 5 Songs That Influenced Me

Following the release of her debut single “Hey, It’s You”, Emily Laing goes back to her roots with a delicate an acoustic version of the folk-tinged single.

We caught up with Emily Laing and she gave us her top 5 tracks and why. Find out below:

La vie en rose (Edith Piaf):
My grandpa’s favourite song and the first song I ever sang live. The first song I ever learnt to play on ukulele. A lot of firsts and a beautiful tune.
Blackbird (The Beatles):
The first song I truly fell in love with at first listen. Simplicity itself and so beautiful.
Bloody Mother F***ing A**hole (Martha Wainwright):
My favourite song of all time. The song I can scream and shout to WHATEVER the weather. When in doubt, sing it out. Martha Wainwright is utterly fearless.
Creep (Radiohead):
Just because. One of my favourite tunes to sing live. It says everything with so few chords and words.
Paper Bag (Fiona Apple):
I struggle a lot with anxiety and on a bad day, this song never fails to help. Even if it’s only a little. I honestly don’t know what I’d do without music.
