Hear Ye: what rock nyc is listening to 12-9-13

ordinary song

1. Ordinary Love – U2 – This is what David Fricke wrote about this terrible song in Rolling Stone: “”Ordinary Love” is about the seeds of dreams, and U2 play it perfectly: down-to-earth, while looking up.’. The truth is, the lyric, apparently taken from Nelson Mandela’s love letters to one of his wives, is asinine and the track is a Church organ in search of a song and not finding it – D

2.  G.U.Y. – Lady Gaga – Best line on the album right here: “Touch me touch me, don’t be sweet, love me love me please retweet” – B+

3. Hey Brother – Avicii – God, this is an annoying piece of fake folk – D+

4. Brighton Beach – Rod Stewart – A gorgeous piece of remembrance of a teen years long gone – A

5. Mr. Bright Eyes – Rebecca Ferguson – No not that one – B+

6.  Nada – Chanel West Coast – Nice sound effects – B+

7. Do What You Want – Lady Gaga and R. Kelly – Well, it didn’t sell as a single so so much for that concept – B

8. Love Me – Kety Perry – The problem with such a song name is it has to be great to matter and this is bland as hell – C

9. #GETITRIGHT – Miley Cyrus – Not just hashmarks but hashmarks and whistling – B

10. Can’t Stop Me Now – Rod Stewart – The other epic on the newbie – A
