No mention of this? Okay.
Ericksson sings the outro to Adventure Time (which is seldom heard on TV because of them advertising what’s on next or next week), and their new song “No Wonder I” appeared as BMO’s favorite song in the fantastic episode “Shh!” Watch it over here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VjlDCouMfyQ
Think of a few songs you’d damn well better love. “Call Me Maybe.” “Complicated.” “Since U Been Gone.” “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together.” Max Martin, Dr. Luke, RedOne, Klas Ahlund (member of Teddybears and former member of Caesars, does a lot of production work now including writing and producing many Robyn songs). Songs like these can be done by anyone and can’t be said to necessarily belong to those who perform them. Anyone can sing these radio hits and they’ll be great.
Liz Phair made an album of songs like that. She made the impersonal her personal.
While some stay back in 2003 frowning, I’ll be over here enjoying the hell out of Justin Timberlake and Beyoncé.
Thank you so much for writing this. I don’t know if you saw my comment on Facebook about wanting to read some second looks about this album, but here it is. Me? I always liked this album, and in a year where I think Tegan & Sara put out my favorite album by going hardcore pop, I can’t help but feel at least a little validated.
I love so many songs here, but picking anything other than “Get Lucky” feels dishonest.
Is this the same field Eminem rapped “Love the Way You Lie” from?
Yesterday I woke up sucking on a nipple.
Kacey Musgraves really really needs to be on this list.
Copycat. Japandroids quit girls way before Christopher Owens ever did.
I don’t think he blasted her, but despite his announced intentions to not shame or embarrass her, he does exactly that, particularly when he brings up Chestnutt and Linkous.
