“Jessie Ware’s slow-burning soul ballad “Say You Love Me” is both my favorite song on her very good sophomore album Tough Love and one of my favorite songs of the year.”!!!!
“For old heads like me”!
Does it never fail? Here, the very first word of the article is “I.” So eager insert yourself.
Hey maybe I’m just on a hot streak tonight but do you sometimes or ever post an article where you don’t introduce something about yourself in the opening sentence?
The author opens this review by quoting themselves from a previous article? Shameless. And that article written six years ago? Have you learned nothing of your craft in that time?
Amazing story! Can’t believe you got stood up at a show! Really sheds new light on this up and coming band!
Please cover every tiny tidbit of information surrounding the new Weezer album (as they are on a hott streak), as well as any and all news regarding Weezer cover bands. Thank you.
“I forgot that Scott McKenzie’s countercultural anthem “San Francisco” existed but now that I remember, I really hope that Mad Men makes use of it during its final season next year — maybe to accompany Sally’s inevitable embrace of her inner flower power and her escape out west?”
What an interesting way to start a post, sharing some HIGHLY RELEVANT facts about how you forgot a song (strong music journalism!), and then VERY RELEVANTLY tying it in to some TV show you like. Then punting completely on commenting on the song at all. In the least. (It’s not bad!) Very good writing. Solid.
Here’s hoping it’s written by someone with something more interesting and intelligent to say about it.
