a different pop music landscape
Posts Tagged: Calvin Harris
she had a punk phase in the ‘90s
warehouses for barely remembered songs that flit and flutter and are then gone
definitely a grower
What a terrific story
steal your boyfriend, steal your girlfriend, steal pop music
This year is waiting for something…
This year is waiting for something…
all flow all the time
men in their mid-20s singing soulful MOR
an entire industry of 20 something guys with deep voices
That can only mean “ONE KISS”!!!
her best song, and the best single of the year
Julien Baker, Phoebe Bridgers, Lucy Dacus are at the Wiltern on Friday
Ariana just left the pack and has her own “Shake It Off” after all these years.
who doesn’t need a good cry here and there?
hip hop hook of the year
Nothing kills music faster than self importance.
here and there they can turn up with a good single
a little laid back
lame EDM by the town pump of music
“The symbol of your love is time”
way over does the necrophilism
two women who saved two EDM pop songs
representing the old sod
a terrific paean to loving who you want to love
The sound of Gay Teen
a world in turmoil
that ubiquitous”Tools” sound
doesn’t just exercise the zeitgeist, it defines the zeitgeist.
Why did “One Kiss” not break big Stateside?
“One Kiss” is already on my best of 2018 list
wood being sawn
pure aural sugar
I could finally hear Katy Perry’s terrific vocal
She was so obsessed with her life and career
‘Taylor was really disappointed in Calvin and felt like he wasn’t there for her.’
As for Bernie Sanders, does it even matter what kind of music he likes?
It seems there’s no in between among female artists, they are either too superstars or second-line-on-Coachella-poster.
Avicii and Calvin Harris are the old face of new dance, but boy are they old faces. This MOR beats stuff has grown beyond tedious and if this was 1989, these two would be the first at the guillotine as privileged pampered arbittors of manufactured crap.
Taylor Swift was spotted in Los Angeles at a Haim concert at the Troubadour on Thursday…. And she was holding hands with Calvin Harris… the world’s highest paid DJ with the world’s highest paid pop star, what a power couple! And both highly overrated! But we already know it won’t last for very long.
Rappers are still going strong even those I haven’t heard anything from for a long time, like Diddy ($60 million and $1.90 per second)! Beside this you have Calvin Harris ($66 million and $2.09 per second), Jay Z ($60 million and $1.90 per second), and Drake ($33 million and $1.05 per second)
Motion – Calvin Harris – The best EDM album since Bassnectar, is the best big star filled extravaganza since Avicii’s remix album. It is all pretty excellent, but the Haim, Gwen Stefani and house banger “Slow Acid” are simply magnificent – ALBUM OF THE WEEK – A-
Is it me, or the tune even sounds la bit ike the Police at 0:58 and at 1:57? Because yes, it goes back into circles, a bit pop-dance, taking a full disco ball level, then these half-hushed Fleetwood-Mac-like multi voices and then open dance floor again….
Ellie? Weren’t they dating and then broke up and then she ended up with Eddie Sheeran and dumped him and he wrote a song about it? or am I thinking about two other people? Ed wrote “Don’t” about Ellie dumping him for a 1D guy… Ps she is currently dating the bassist for McFly.
Wait a second, Brown, Usher and Ross? Personally, I am amazed Ross is still kicking but he really is a great rapper and this is a soulful, more Usher than Brown track. Personally, I was disappointed by “Blame” -relatively speaking of course. I’m guessing John Newman gave it the magic juice.
Hell, this is so weird, things take forever to move on the Singles charts, and for the second week there is precisely one new song and two changes in position with “Happy” dropping out and “Maps” dropping in and i have admitted in public before that I like Adam Levine, and this is as good a Police update as you’ll hear. But the dye job, Ada? It has to go.
Country Song – Happy Mondays – Originally called “Some Cunt from Preston” and not much of a shocker why the they changed its name, the Madchester monster band sounds ahead of its time even today: a blues beater with heavy heavy beats – A
Rita deserves her # 1 position, she’s worked for it, it is a good song and it begins to make up for the double standard sexism that has gone along with the claims of promiscuity. As if it wasn’t her body and her choice. Otherwise, I like this list a lot: it is alway better than the US at least because it changes faster and we ain’t stuck with Bro country.
