10 Songs: Thursday, September 24th, 2015

maxresdefault

1 – Since U Been Gone – Kelly Clarkson – This is a tsunami of a song, Max Martin AND Dr. Luke wrote and produced it together and it is as smart and as cynical and as essentially brilliant as hook ladled pop can get: They build in explosion after explosion and Clarkson, who is a real singer, is a powerhouse here. This is the litmus test for modern pop music – A+

2 – Doing It Wrong – Leigh Nash – The closing smash off the new album – A

3 – Seven Nation Army – The White Stripes – Awesome riff – A

4 – Wesley’s Theory – Kendrick Lamar – Kendrick’s smart use of P-Funk hook – A

5 – All Your Favorite Bands – If it wasn’t for the verse about writing about it while half asleep, this would be a masterpiece – A

6 – Till The Next Time We Say Goodbye – The Rolling Stones – The coffee shop on 52nd street? Cosmo Diner – A

7 – Infinity – One Direction – Not much action in the charts but a sweet love anthem – B

8 – Kathy’s Song – Simon And Garfunkel – Art  sounds like the soft rain he is singing about – A

9 – The Hills – The Weeknd – At my tempo – A

10 – Wish You Were here – Ryan Adams – Top song off one of his greatest albums – A
