Wait this is great. Lowkey it gives me like older Broadway vibes but make it modern. I might need to get into her.

Group 1

 

Apink - Dumhdurum - Cute tropical vibes

BANKS - Gemini Feed - I really like the chorus x

Björk - Army of Me - Bjork's music just gives me Matrix characters walking like bad asses in slow motion vibes sometimes

Rihanna - SOS - Timeless bop

GROUP 1


 

Spoiler

Apink - Dumhdurum: these ladies did the almost impossible task of remaining relevant and releasing consistently amazing music for 9 years. this song concluded their trinity of excellent, sugary title tracks and revamped their image to a more mature audience. it's not my favorite of the three, but it's still a hell of a good song! the big but calm chorus is super addictive and there's a synth line throughout the song that's infectious as hell.

 

BANKS - Gemini Feed: this is one of the few songs where i can stomach BANKS. she's probably one of the most talentless people in the industry, but i think the excessive vocal production works for this song, and the production and lyrics are pretty cool as well. i love how the synth arpeggio keeps building up and drowning out the vocals towards the end.

 

Bjork - Army of Me: not a fan of her music at all, and this isn't an exception.

 

BLACKPINK - How You Like That: excellent song. i'll just copy paste my blurb from my best of 2020 lol. i know this song is like... universally panned but i don't care! the first few notes in their comeback single recall "kill this love", with its triumphant horns and their iconic callout. but if "kill this love" was about a toxic romance that needed to be ended, "how you like that" is its triumphant follow up - the girls are alone and better than ever. every section in this song is different, but obviously the drop in the chorus is so present that it should be the 5th member. it's noisy but it gives me a buzz, and when it mutates into its final form during the outro, it's genuinely chill inducing.

 

Céline Dion - It’s All Coming Back to Me Now: this is how you make a power ballad. It’s epic, full of emotion, and slightly creepy. I just can’t not imagine Céline singing this in an empty castle in the 13th century with a storm raging outside. Also a masterclass on pacing: it knows when to build up and when to slow down, depending on the emotion she’s conveying, so that no second of its almost 8 minutes is wasted.

 

Charli XCX - Vroom Vroom: WHO else listened to this when it premiered on Beats One (?) and it was all censored and only had that version to listen to with ****ty Soundcloud quality for some months??? It’s a great song, and a peak Charli has been trying to reach again ever since.

 

Doja Cat - Go To Town: a quirky bop, it’s fun and that’s about it. It has a certain undercooked, pre-fame charm about it, though.

 

Hole - Celebrity Skin: to a certain other song in this group I listened to before this… this is how you make good rock!! Catchy and radio-friendly but still full of edge and personality. A big win for Ms. Love.

 

Jessie Ware - Spotlight: A song we all know and love. If I was a contestant I’d be fuming :mandown: very theatrical, groovy, mysterious, classy… it has an Agatha Christie aura about it, like there’s a murder about to happen in the dancefloor and the rich beautiful lady in furs is guilty. I could say so much more - it’s just a beautiful song that pulls you into its world and doesn’t let you escape.

 

Kari Faux - Medicated: Not the best of vibe-y soundcloud R&B

 

Kelela - A Message: the best of vibe-y soundcloud R&B. probably the first song of hers i heard because of the Arca credits (i miss this era of her productions) and was instantly in love. Love the sass and emotion, coupled with the amazing but restrained vocals.

 

Kesha - Your Love is My Drug: of course it sounds straight out of 2011 but it doesn’t sound dated? I don’t know, the melodies are timeless and the production is still sharp. Could very well be a Slayyyter tribute to that era. It’s not one of my faves here, but still a good entry.

 

Liz Phair - 6’1”: Terrible. Don’t like her voice or the instrumentals. Soccer Mommy did her shtick much better.

 

Lorde - Tennis Court: I like the nostalgia i get from this more than i like the song itself. It’s good, but was definitely better 10 or so years ago.

 

P!nk - Stupid Girls: Very cringe and of its time. It’s not much, but she has way better material.

 

Rita Ora - Anywhere: Rita was my pop savior in 2017 and this was my anthem. I love the themes of running away and being free and being her birthday twin i can relate to that as well. I think it’s aged a bit though, especially the drop. Definitely not my favorite song anymore.

 

Sam Smith - Young: I appreciate the message but I honestly prefer when they were doing the Adele impersonation gig. This is fine, but forgettable within this group. I like the vocoder, it’s just that there’s literally nothing else going on production-wise.

 

The Knife - Heartbeat: Don’t think I’ve listened to this before but i like it! I know the singer’s solo work so i was expecting something more pretentious and horrible, but this was very melodic and cute.
 
TWICE - I Can’t Stop Me: it’s okay, but does not stack up against the majority of TWICE’s title tracks. The physical/blinding lights era came late to kpop (as it usually does), and the results were underwhelming. This one in particular can get very grating with the screeching going on in the chorus.

 

WILLOW - transparent soul: I hate hate HAAAAAAAAAAATE this song. Such a bad attempt at a All We Know-era Paramore tribute but with terrible vocals.

 

 

 

 

Group 2 will arrive later today :riri:

Apink - Dumhdurum

 

This jubilation is such a contrast to my emotion, but the song gets better as it progresses. Wish I could say the same for my state of mind.
