10 Songs: Tuesday, March 31st, 2015


1 – Somebody That I Used To Know – Gotye – The Police redux and a huge winner for Gotye who couldn’t really follow it up, and Kimbra, who couldn’t follow it up either. Consider it the “Budapest” of 2012 – C+

2 – Call Me Maybe – Carly Rae Jepsen – A cultural phenomenon at the time, and Carly can’t replicate it because it can’t be done twice. It really, really, really, really can’t – B+

3 – We Are Young – fun. feat Janelle Monea – The perfect meeting of Nate’s Great American songbook jones and Jack’s power pop gooeyness – A

4 – Payphone – Maroon 5 – What <aroon 5 can do is make it appear easy even when the toil of 100s go into every song, including this catchy nugget – B+

5 – Lights – Ellie Goulding – After opening for Katy Perry, Ellie made her move – B

6 – Glad You Came – The Wanted – Playing the Clash to One Direction’s Sez Pistols, they bought leather jackets and clipped 1D to the finish line – B-

7 – Stronger (What Doesn’t Kill You) – Kelly Clarkson – The blueprint for the next three years, country meets dance beats – B

8 – We Found Love – Calvin Harris And Rihanna – Changed the landscape of modern EDM. It’s influence can’t be overstated as MOR pop met beats for not the first but for the best time. Influenced everyone – A

9 – Starships – Nicki Minaj – The most appealing song she has ever put her name to, it is poppier than all get out and everything the tediously glum Pinkprint isn’t – B+

10 – What Makes You Beautiful – One Direction – The girls worship this because it is the right thing to say to them, though the song itself could be better – B
