So here are the five latest songs that are added to the playlist.
SUPERCUT by LORDE: A love song. But not quite the average love song, as this takes the rose-tinted glasses view and literally crafts the song about it. The supercut is how they just remember the good stuff.
CLOSER by SIX60: Another song that uses word repetition in order to start. Once again, a song about a night out but it has a strong rhythm that makes the song work. It feels like the song keeps building but the closest thing to a traditional chorus is just the word “closer”.
IF YOU EVER WANT TO BE IN LOVE by JAMES BAY: I’m not sure what to make of this song. The music is very upbeat. The lyrics and vocals are more downcast. Regardless, it forms an intriguing mix at the moment.
WOKE UP LATE by DRAX PROJECT: Just a nice song that tells a story about how things are easy during a night out then when the lights come on (the next day). Nice melody and beat run through the song that builds and cuts off at the right moments.
NO TEARS LEFT TO CRY by ARIANA GRANDE: So Ariana Grande is trying to do a more diva-style song in the like Mariah Carey or similar, but seems to shy away from doing the whole song like this as they make it more a dance number. It stands out for the chorus because no other songs currently are trying to do this, but I feel that this wouldn’t have stood out if there were other diva-style songs available.
