Beck – Colors
- It’s a great pop song from one of the year’s great pop albums.
- I heard it used at our two biggest events in 2018 – it’s a really upbeat, energising track that sounds amazing over a massive sound system.
- Sonically, for me it captures the new world we’re entering with ICF – multi-coloured, multi-faceted and multi-national.
June Macfarlane, Senior Event Manager
Journey – Don’t Stop Believin’
It’s uplifting, motivational – a reminder that you should never stop believing in yourself or what you can achieve in life.
Kam Phullar, Senior Strategist
Ginuwine – Pony
This song encapsulates my time in the London office – it’s my We are Vista anthem and embodies both the professional and personal spirit of the agency. Also, did I mention… ponies are my spirit animal.

It’s a great funky track that’s brought a lot of fun in the office over the year. It was also one of our Christmas party anthems.

Silk City, Dua Lipa, Diplo, Mark Ronson – Electricity
This is a feel-good tune that takes me back to the amazing summer we had – the likes of which haven’t been experienced since the ‘70s. It went on forever which was incredible – just living outdoors.
It’s all about relationships that have no limit – and when we’ve had our fill of vitamin D, that positivity of expression flows.
James Wilkins, CEO and Founder
