Going Steady: New Singles Reviewed 4-29-16 – 5-5-16


Baby Baby – Amy Grant, Tori Kelly – Terrible pop song after a terrific Christian album last week, this hand clapping claptrap is a major bummer – C-

This Is What You Came For – Calvin Harris, Rihanna – Yeah, well, this would never have jumpstarted him into bed with Taylor Swift the way “We Found Love” did four years ago. Absolutely ordinary EDM pop – C

Bored To Death – Blink 182 – Matt Skiba? Look, nobody thinks Tom DeLonge was the greatest singer on earth, but he was the greatest singer on earth for Blink 182. Though, in all honestly, nothing could save this shit, man that bridge deserves a smack in the nose – D+

H.O.L.Y. – Florida Georgia Line – This isn’t even Blink 182 bad, this is world class, top of the world, very worst song of all time bad. Unbearable, country dross – F

Not Today – Imagine Dragons – Wow, this is surreal. Horrid ballad by the first runner ups in the worst band on the planet sweepstakes – D


Mom – Meghan Trainor, Kelli Trainor – Can Meghan simply not get it right anymore? This should be charming the way “Dear Future Husband” was, but she lost the hard work to reach perfection, she has stopped listening to her inner voice. It isn’t bad but the golden age of Meghan is over – B-

Buried In Detroit Lucas Lowe – Mike Posner – Big Sean adds a vocal from this goodie off his fine The Truth EP, sure it is “Pill” by other means but AT THE SAME TIME – B+

Cool Papa Bell – Paul Simon – Don’t believe the hype, this sounds like a Graceland track. So that’s bad? – B+

True Colors – Zedd, Kesha – It is hard to remember that Kesha was once not this snivelling wretched whining woman, Zedd on the other hand was always  this snivelling wretched whining woman – D
