Hey everyone. Sorry it’s been awhile. I’ve been doing a bunch of work creating Halloween content for the newly existing again music section. I’ve also been watching the Cardinals beat everyone in baseball. I’ve already explained this section a couple times, but I guess I’ll do it again: I review songs on twitter at @PopCitTwitCrit, then I post them here. You can respond on twitter or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org and assuming I ever figure out how to check that email, I might include your responses in this feature. Also, you can suggest songs for me to review int he comments section or on twitter. So, what songs did I tolerate and/or enjoy over the last couple weeks?
(Since writing that Twit Crit, they released the music video for this song, and I’m slightly obsessed with it. It’s a beautiful story of a failed relationship between two people having the time of their lives in spite of one another. I don’t care that that guy looks like Chris Brown or understand how it is controversial. I just like it.)
Sexy & I Know It by
@lmfao - if “Last Christmas” was this bad, Wham! would’ve been a one hit wonder. Just sayin. This is terrible.
(I heard this song in a bar the other day, and I guess it was a remix because I didn’t hate it. That tricked me into relistening a minute ago, much to my regret.)
(Apparently Ke$ha’s twitter is @Keshasuxx . I actually mentioned @Ke, which I think is an element.)
It Will Rain
@BrunoMars - Overproduced. Acoustic and significantly shorter version would have been tolerable. Fitting of the Twilight OST.
Someone Like You – Generic but well sung by
@OfficialAdele. Would be moving if I’m in the mood but not powerful enough to put me there.
@coldplay think this song is much more dramatic and good than it is. It is neither. That was repetitive.
What did everyone else think?
