New Song of the Week: 6-28-21

Ed Sheeran is easily one of the best Pop artists of the modern generation.  And what I’m loving is that he is changing the game a little bit with his new song “Bad Habits”- it’s a totally different sound (and look!) for him, and I am all here for it.

 

The song is pop perfection- fun, easy to listen to, and very 80’s pop-ish. I fell like Ed is taking a page from The Weeknd’s musical playbook, and why not? While some music heads complain about it, I’m all for it. Then again, I loooooove cheesy 80’s pop, so a resurgence in modern music is right up my alley.  I dug this song the first time I listened to it, and I can’t wait to hear what else Ed has for us this year.

 

Change is good, and Ed can pull it off.

 

New Song of the Week: 6-13-21

Being an Army wife, I always get really excited when there’s a new song that praises our military, which Country Music seems to do pretty well. I just came across the new song from Trace Adkins, and it got me in the feels a little bit.  It’s called “Empty Chair” and it’s a great salute to those who fought and sacrificed so much for our country.

Maybe it’s just me getting older, or just more aware as the years go on as a military spouse of how incredible our servicemen and women are, but songs like this need to happen more. As a whole, our population tends to forget what our soldiers went through in the past (and still go through on the daily) to protect our rights and freedoms.  It seems that we can be too busy complaining about our country and being ridiculously sensitive about every little thing to really appreciate how great we have it here. We’re lucky. And it’s because of those who fought for it that we can enjoy so many freedoms.  Remember that, ok?

Ok, I’m not going to get too soapboxy because I ate too much Mexican food tonight, and I just want to sleep.

Thank you, Trace Adkins, for this song! And as always, THANK YOU to our military.

 

 

New Song of the Week: 5-24-21

We all know that P!NK is a total badass, whose career has spanned a couple of decades now (Yes, decades. Really) So, it’s fair to say that she’s hit ICON status now. She manages to stay relevant, make good pop music, and most importantly, stay true to herself.  And her latest song “All I Know So Far” is definitely one of my favorites of hers that she’s put out in the past decade.

 

I love songs that actually have a little substance to them, and can actually inspire you to be better, and this one definitely does that.

There are no rules in life (except don’t be a jackass to others), and no set path you have to follow. Follow your heart and do you. That’s what I get out of this song, and I totally relate.

 

Did I mention that I love P!NK?

New Song of the Week 3-31-21

I know, I know… it’s the second week in a row that I’m featuring a Country song, but this one is gonna be a Summer bar anthem in every college town.  Travis Denning is an up and coming Country artist with a #1 hit under his belt with “After a Few”, and I’m thinking this new song “ABBY” (Anybody But You) is going to follow suit.

It’s not a song to be taken too seriously- just a fun, radio-friendly party song that a lot of people can relate to.  Also, I got a chance to chat with Travis earlier this week, and he’s an absolute doll. Be on the lookout for the full interview on Friday!

If you have a song you think needs some love and some airplay, let me know! I’m always on the lookout for great new stuff.
