Going Steady: New Singles 11-25-22 – 12-1-22 Reviewed

Monochrome – BABYMETAL – J-Pop meets K-Pop with all girl duo just post success on this excellent rocker – B+

Paralyzed – Big Time Rush – Nickelodeon’s attempt to resurrect the Monkees TV template didn’t work with this emo, Pop-punk guys, this isn’t bad but it is nothing much either – C-

spite – Billy Nomates – the best in class, Billy adds to 2020 lustre with a fantastic track of hard rock UK style but better – B+

Rocket Science (feat. D-Block Europe) – Clavish -odd that D-Block haven’t broken the US, and odd if the grime guy Clavish won’t push em there – B

Angel – Jimi Hendrix, ZAYN – The song is beautiful and also, composed four months before Jimi’s own death, it seconds as an omen, twelve years after his mother’s death, she came back to collect him. Zayn’s mother is an English woman who changed her religion to Islam after marrying Zayn’s father and Zayn is a product of an interfaith marriage, and Zayn has that best of all words prettiness, His mother wants him to move back home… Between the two men, women, mother’s, try to save them. As for “Angel”, I can’t see how it can be a hit but it sure deserves to be… Happy 80th Jimi. – A

Big Burna – Kid Ink, Wiz Khalifa I was never crazy about either performer but Kid Ink is excellent on this honeysuckled pop r&b track and Wiz can do this type of rap in his sleep – B

Dreamers [Music from the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 Official Soundtrack] – Jung Kook, BTS, FIFA Sound – dreamers? More FIFA crap with Jung from BTS given a solo credit as the band take a break – C

Taurus (feat. Naomi Wild) – From The Motion Picture Taurus – Machine Gun Kelly – from his upcoming semi-biography, MGK raps for the first time in too long – B-

Rebels Without Applause – Morrissey – as good as Moz gets in 2022, forget about his brain fog and it flys with a great hook and a fine description of music performers (“I love them all” he concludes) seeped in nostalgia and it is bizarre that Red Hot Chili Peppers is all over it and bizarre and more that it is the most Smiths song he has been a part of since he went solo and his best song since “I Will See You In Far Off Places” – SINGLE OF THE WEEK – A

Free Game – MOUNT WESTMORE, E-4o, Ice Cube. Snoop Dogg, Too $hort – a veritable who’s who of West Coast boom bap – B-

I Hate You When You’re Drunk – Olly Murs – Murs always hit me as a Robbie Williams with international appeal but it didn’t happen, this is a catchy number with the Eurythmics Dave Stewart at the helm… but it won’t do squat here – B

Start Nowhere – Sam Hunt – mainstream country from the “Body Is A Back Road” guy leads off his third album with a great little song and excellent acoustic guitar throughout – B

Unholy (feat. Kim Petras) – Orchestral Version – Sam Smith – one of the biggest songs of the year with a different and terrific backing track – A-

The Hands – From the Original Motion Picture “The Inspection” – serpentwithfeet – not prime Josiah but a sweet and moody electronic singer songwriter – B

Only You – STANY, Offset, Rema – STANY is a producer, Offset’s first release since Takeoff was shot o death, and Rema a major Afrobeats guy and they come together well with a beat beautiful track – B+

Christmas Tree Farm (Old Timey Version) – Taylor Swift -50s style orchestration – B-

I’m Movin’ On – Van Morrison – There has been something so mindless about the attacks on Van Morrison, to my mind he has been always a consistently powerful singer, songwriter, and all round asshole, but who cares when he is covering Hank Snow on “I’m Moving On” – B+

Christmas, Of Course – Will Dailey – a talented singer songwriter from Boston with a really terrific bummer Christmas song, put this close to the new Kevin Bacon- Old 97’s Christmas song though Will has the “lost the war on drugs, won the war on Christmas” to give it the lead – B+

Gimme Some More (Club Mix) – Yemi Alade, Fliptyce, Meaku – adding afrobeats to house was bound to be a goodie – B+
