I’ve realized that I can’t put a dozen links to YouTube in a Facebook post, so I’m gonna tell you about my favorite songs right now here in this post.
Have you ever noticed that pop music sort-of goes in cycles? It has either a bunch of rock-ish songs that are big at the time or it leans more rhythmic. I prefer the rhythmic spurts, but bands like Twenty One Pilots make me appreciate the rock ones, too.
Anyway, there are some great full on pop songs out right now and I feel that it’s my duty (yes. I said duty) to make sure you know about them. You can thank me in your head the next time you’ve got your iPhone playing these songs while you clean the house or workout or whatever.
I won’t bore you with info about the band or singer…let’s get to the music.
Hailee Steinfeld ft. Zedd- Starving
“Don’t need no butterflies when you give me the whole damn zoo…” Who doesn’t want that? Who doesn’t picture that person who gives them the whole damn zoo while this song is on? I love it!
DNCE- Body Moves
“What’s on your mind…cuz what’s on mine, a dirty mind, why so serious?”
Joe Jonas is all grown up! And while I love Nick Jonas as a solo act, I love Joe Jonas in this band. Try not to bob your head when you hear the bassline on this song.
Speaking of Nick Jonas-
Nick Jonas- Bacon
I don’t really like bacon, but I love the idea of this song. They add bacon to everything that’s great and then it’s even greater! There is a clean version of this song and the dirty one. I prefer the dirty one, which is what I’m posting.
Nick Jonas- VooDoo
Why not throw in the new song from Nick Jonas? This whole album is great!
Tegan and Sara- Stop Desire
I’m not crazy about the music videos they’re doing for this new album, but I do love this song. It’s kind of got an 80’s sound to it. I can’t handle a lot of the sound anymore, but I love the way they integrate it into their sound.
Machine Gun Kelly ft. Camila Cabello- Bad Things
This one samples an old song by Fastball and makes it cool again. I’m not crazy about the MGK part of this song yet, but overall, I love the song.
Miguel ft. Kasey Musgraves- Waves
Kasey mentioned working with Miguel when she came in our studio, but I didn’t hear this song until last week. Maybe I’m slow. I dunno. It’s Miguel’s song “Waves” with Kasey Musgraves in it. I LOVE Miguel. Seriously. I had to listen to this song a few times before I liked it, but I officially like it now. It’s a grower.
Jon Bellion- All Time Low (acoustic)
I posted this somewhere last week, but I’m posting it again. This is just talent.
Justin Bieber ft. Halsey- The Feeling
This song just sounds cool to me. It’s almost a year old, but I’ve not heard it on the radio or anything, so maybe you haven’t either. So I thought I would share. I don’t know who these people in the video are, but good for them.
Josh Abbott Band- Amnesia
JAB is one of my all time favorite bands. I have an autographed guitar from Josh that was given to me after a kid met him as part of Make a Wish. For whatever reason, the kid remembered me talking about JAB when we met before and was kind enough to get this guitar for me. I love it and this song. In fact, the album is pretty great as a whole.
That’s all I’ve got for now. This is a pretty good start for a playlist, in my opinion. I hope you don’t hate my choices. If you do, at least be kind in the way you tell me, please.
Have a great day!
