2019 Top 100, Special Mentions.

Walking home after picking Sol up from school today, he said “You like writing about music and I want to review more songs!”, so I have decided to do a post of honourable mentions for last year. Some songs I listen to a lot but they don’t get counted as they only exist in my…

2019 Top 100, Part 10.

10: Holding Out For A Hero – Bonnie Tyler As you’d expect from this attractive roofer, the video for this is batshit mental. Now, it’s a lot more tame than the video we looked at for Total Eclipse Of The Heart, and it definitely has a stronger theme running through it, but dear god, what…

2019 Top 100, Part 9.

20: Cry Me A River – Justin Timbercake This one is a combination of Sol and me. As Old Town Road was entirely him, I assume he’s listened to it more than this as some of the plays of this are definitely me. Still a great album overall, Justified gave us some pop classics. It’s…

2019 Top 100, Part 8.

30: A Little Respect – Erasure Tell you what, writing about 100 songs sure takes it out of you. I’m only fucking 71 in as well! I don’t know how much I have left to give. Oh baby, please, give a little respect, tooooooooo meeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee. Every year there’s a song that I don’t remember listening…

Can Vs Should.

Lewis Capaldi is doing pretty fucking well at the moment. I wanted to take a second to quickly examine the idea of can vs should and use him to express what I mean! Here is the video for his brilliant “Someone You Loved”. So, what we’re looking at is the idea of this video. Can…

2019 Top 100, Part 7.

40: Walk Away – Christina Aguilera I think, THINK this is my fave Christreena song. Did I tell you all I met her? Yep. I met Christina Aguilera. Here we are: She didn’t do any singing because she said she felt a bit… flat… that day. 😉 So. Yes. This is my fave song of…

2019 Top 100, Part 6.

50: Little Bird – Annie Lennox Genuinely, one of my fave ever songs, when it comes to rhythm. The beat in this song is just perfection as far as I’m concerned. Annie’s voice over the top obviously helps. It’s a perfect slice of pop and is yet another reason why she’s one of the best…

2019 Top 100, Part 5.

60: Clutch – Power Glove Number 60 on the list and we find Power Glove. Brilliant name, obviously, but sadly no Lucas Barton in sight. He loves the Power Glove. See, I wouldn’t lie to you. That joke was just for you, lovers of 1989s The Wizard with Fred Savage! Clutch is exactly my thing…

2019 Top 100, Part 4.

70: Gz And Hustlas – Snoop Dogg Feat Nancy Fletcher Something that has never dawned on me with this song, and I’ve obviously listened to this song a lot, given that it’s been in the top 40 a few times… Nancy is the dude talking at the beginning. I mean, I’m assuming so, since the…

2019 Top 100, Part 3.

80: Kayleigh – Marillion Interesting fact! I have a friend named Kaylee who is named after this song, but her dad, upon arriving at… the baby naming place… couldn’t remember how to spell it! An 80s power ballad classic, Kayleigh is taken from the ’85 classic “Misplaced Childhood”, a concept album held in high regard…

2019 Top 100, Part 2.

90: Ghost – Halsey I really like Halsey. The album this was off, the name of which escapes me right now, was pretty solid. I don’t know a whole lot about her though, other than it’s pronounce Hall-sey, not Hal-sey. You know, just in case you ever want to shout at her across a bar…
