Ree rules

Ree rules

So the age of streaming is upon us, actually it has been upon us for two years now, ever since Spotify changed the playing field. I quite clearly waiting half an hour for an invitation to sign up before realizing that if I got the premium ten buck all access deal I wouldn’t have to wait and so I did it and have merrily coughed up my money ever since then.

Lo these many years later though the question is, is Billboard, is album an single sales, irrelevant and the answer is, if viewed in a vacuum maybe so but as part of the streaming, youtube, etc etc Itunes, so on universe they are valuable. And I bet if you compared this list of most popular Spotify tracks and Billboard sales, they would be knocking on identical.

Who are the stars? Ree, Flo Rida, Sia. Not hip hop, not r&b, definitelt not rock. It’s all pop EDM!

So here is really really short reviews and the actually Spotify list of the softwar streamings most popular songs. See you in hell, buster.

2. Call me Maybe – Carly Rae Jepsen – Exothermic hit which became a catchphrase and was then forgotten – B+

3. Thrift Shop – Macklemore And Lewis – The hook here took me forever to reveal itself, but that “this is fucking awesome” is a real biggie – B

4. Titanium (feat Sia) – David Guetta – Her huge voice never put to better use – A

5. We Are Young – fun. – Very smart power pop for a new decade – A
