1. Ordinary People - John Legend

It's such a romantic song. It has a straightforward quality about it, and John Legend's voice makes it a very soulful piece.

2. I've Got You Under My Skin - Jamie Cullum

He may look like a little guy but Cullum packs a lot of confidence and energy. This track from his first album is my favourite.

3. Lee Heung Lan - Jacky Cheung Hok-yau

Jacky Cheung is my all-time favourite singer. This song may be quite old, but it has aged very well.

4. Superwoman - Babyface

This song means a lot to me. I did a Putonghua version in 2005 and it put me on the map. Written by Babyface, it became a hit for Karyn White in 1988. Babyface's music really inspires me. I love how he includes the stuff going on in his daily life in his music.

5. Gake no Ue no Ponyo - Joe Hisaishi

This is the theme tune to Hayao Miyazaki's animated film Ponyo on the Cliff by the Sea. It's a children's song and I play it every morning because it's my one-year-old son Joe's favourite and when I play it he smiles and then he'll just start clapping and dancing. It's so cute to watch how much he enjoys the song.
