There are some songs on your iPod absolutely guaranteed to put a smile on your face no matter how you might be feeling, right?

Whether it reminds you of a holiday with the girls, a night out with the boyfriend or a weekend away with the family, our iPod is a veritable feels-fest.

And while memories and music are inextricably linked, it looks like there's one particular song which appeals to everyone across the board.

According to a group of researchers at the University of Missouri, Queen's Don't Stop Me Now has the ability to transport EVERYBODY to their happy place.

After surveying 2,000 people, neuroscientist Jacob Jolij studied 126 songs across a 50-year period and ultimately created a formula which determined which song would take the crown for 'the Happiest Song in the World'.

"The pattern was very clear," he explained. "The average tempo of a ‘feel good’-song was substantially higher than the average pop song."

"Where the average tempo of pop songs is around 118 beats per minute (BPM), the list of feel good songs had an average tempo of around 140 to 150 BPM."

And according to Jacob, Freddie and the crew were the clear champions… not for the first time either.




For anyone who saw Kanye West attempting to perform the one and only Bohemian Rhapsody during his Glastonbury performance, there was only one thought – ‘Freddie Mercury would be laughing his socks off if he could see this.’

And that is exactly what he did!

Sam Valorose, a writer for the New York radio station Q1043, created a hilarious video of the great Mr Mercury watching the rapper attempt the song. Freddie then takes over, much to the dismay of a disgruntled Kanye.   

While Kanye is undoubtedly one of the most talented hip hop artists of the 21st century, he’s not exactly known for his singing capabilities – something that is glaringly obvious in this hilarious clip. 




Angelina Jolie is officially Dame Angelina Jolie after she was honoured with the title today, Friday 10th October at Buckingham Palace. 

The actress and activist was presented with the honour by the Queen herself and looked absolutely radiant in a grey coloured two-piece suit. 

Those aware of Angelina’s extensive human rights campaigning won’t be very surprised to learn she has gained such a title – it was only in the last few months that Angelina spoke about the role of sexual violence during wartime.

It was said that the actress received the honorary damehood: “for services to UK foreign policy and the campaign to end war zone sexual violence.”



Eek, we’re not sure the Queen will be too happy about Pippa Middleton’s latest move!

The sister of the Duchess of Cambridge, Catherine, has given her first ever TV interview in which she opened up about her relationship with her sister.

The royal family are known to be very private when it comes to interviews and it is very rarely done. Although Pippa may not be a member of the royal family by right, we have a feeling this move would be frowned upon.

The interview with the TODAY show is due to air today and tomorrow in America and features the socialite opening up about Kate: “We have a very normal, sisterly relationship. We’re very close. And, you know, we support each other and get each other’s opinions and things. I think that’s really the heart for all of us is having a really close family that we can sort of be normal with each other, treat each other normally. And that’s sort of kept us all, you know, affixed to the ground.”

Aww, although it may not be the done thing for the royal family to give interviews, we really loved getting a glimpse into the relationship between the sisters.



Prince William bagged a helicopter worth £6.5 million as a birthday present.

Wills turned 32 yesterday and was given a 2008 Augusta A109S Grand helicopter from the Queen; his grandmother.

The chopper, which we’re guessing wasn’t gift-wrapped, can hold one pilot and up to seven passengers.

Wills is a helicopter pilot – having served in the Royal Air Force – so he might be the one flying him and Kate to and from all their engagements.

No pressure on Kate to match that gift, then…



It’s no secret that Katy Perry is a fan of all things British, and now that she’s on tour in the UK, she’s taking it all in!

The pop star uploaded this epic selfie of herself and the ‘Queen’ Adele to her Instagram account, writing: “…And on the 2nd LDN show the Queen graced me with her presence.”

It sounds like Katy may not be as far away as we think in her mission to meet the real Queen of England as it has been revealed that she sent Prince Harry an invitation to hang out with her!

Now that he is officially broken up with Cressida – could a love affair with this pop princess be on the horizon? We would love that!

A source close to Katy has said that she “has a thing for him” and has even gone as far as to invite the prince to hang out with her on the Fourth of July!
