Song Review: “Anyone” Justin Bieber

2020 should have been Justin Bieber’s year. He released so much music, whether it was his own singles, an entire album, or a feature. But he’s not Drake. He can’t just obtain good-faith clout by slapping his name on something mediocre. While he had success commercially on singles with Ariana Grande, Shawn Mendes, and ChanceContinue reading “Song Review: “Anyone” Justin Bieber”

“My Favourite Game” – The Cardigans

Despite being a 90s kid and a fan of music from that era, The Cardigans somehow flew completely under my radar. Besides that one hit that I thought was a No Doubt song until I was well into my 20s, I couldn’t have told you who they were. That’s probably because they were Swedish andContinue reading ““My Favourite Game” – The Cardigans”

Song Review: “I Love Me” by Demi Lovato

I love Demi. She’s outspoken about her struggles with addiction and body image. She’s honest and real, seeming down-to-earth despite how long she’s already been in the spotlight at 27. She wants to make other people feel good about themselves and know that they’re worth it, that they can do it. That’s the theme inContinue reading “Song Review: “I Love Me” by Demi Lovato”

Song Review: “Stupid Love” By Lady Gaga

It took me about 43 seconds to add Lady Gaga’s new song to my Pop Vibes playlist. It attached itself inside my brain, like some kind of infection. But I’ll gladly skip the antidote, because this is everything I want from pop music. It gives me “Perfect Illusion” + “Born This Way” vibes, mixed intoContinue reading “Song Review: “Stupid Love” By Lady Gaga”

“Youngblood” by 5 Seconds of Summer

I had no idea who this artist was, until “Youngblood” popped up on a Spotify playlist for me. I was instantly struck by the melancholy tone contrasted by the insanely infectuous pop hooks, tasty bassline, and snappy snare. Like a lot of great pop songs, it sings about a sad topic, but with a beatContinue reading ““Youngblood” by 5 Seconds of Summer”

“Every Kinda People” by Robert Palmer

You know him as the guy who sang “Addicted to Love”, aka “the guy whose singing voice doesn’t match his face”. He also did this song. It’s called “Every Kinda People” and it’s a feel-good, “make the world go ’round” song about the different kinds of people in the world and how great that is.Continue reading ““Every Kinda People” by Robert Palmer”

“Danger Zone” – Kenny Loggins

This is how I’m getting pumped up for work. I don’t work in anything even remotely related to aviation, but as a retail worker, I feel it at least partially applies to me. This song has been featured prominently in so many movies, ads, and video games–I wonder if the song is just super cheap orContinue reading ““Danger Zone” – Kenny Loggins”

The Greatest Superbowl Halftime Performance

Bruno Mars at the 2014 Superbowl. What an amazing performer he is. The part where he does “Runaway” is my favorite, if it’s even possible to have a favorite moment. The dance moves and synchronization, the showmanship, the energy, the coordination and camerawork. It gives me chills and makes me smile really big. I’d loveContinue reading “The Greatest Superbowl Halftime Performance”

My Go-To Song Going into Work Lately

Michael Jackson’s “Don’t Stop Til You Get Enough“. It’s the perfect way for me to get pumped up. Impossible to be in a bad mood when the King of Pop is grooving and moving in your ear drum area for 6 sweet minutes. I love Michael Jackson, something which will undoubtedly resurface on this blogContinue reading “My Go-To Song Going into Work Lately”
