I do not hate top 40. Fully admit that. But a greater part of it is pretty awful. So when I feel the need to listen to the radio, I have a few songs I telepathically tell the DJ to play. Here are some of my favorites that are out right now:
I really love Calvin Harris. I’m not big on the electronic genre but there’s something about his songs that I thoroughly enjoy. I would definitely like to hear this somewhere dark with a dance floor. Also, whoever is doing the cover design for his work is most excellent at selecting fonts. Sorry. I’m also really into typography.
Oh my god, Ne-yo. You don’t really need to command this, I already love you. You, sir, are true gentleman in every one of your songs. I feel as if I could bring you to my feminist protests (should I happen upon any). Really though, thank you for not using derogatory terms to describe my anatomy, and for not letting us go to bed angry with each other, of course.
I wouldn’t consider myself a huge Bruno Mars song prior to this song. He’s a little whiny when he sings. “Locked Out of Heaven” totally redeems him though. As a friend pointed out, the song is very Police-like, specifically the song “SOS”. I do foresee growing sick of this song as it plays on repeat on pretty much every station. I guess everyone else likes this song as much as I do.
I heard a rumor that Ke$ha is a member of Mensa. This may or may not be true, but homegirl has definitely figured out a way to reword the lyrics in all of her songs to put to a new tune that the masses adore. Warning: This video is an Urban Outfitters dream sequence.
Holy Michael Jackson. I hate Chris Brown with every fiber of my being but dammmnnnnn I love this song. I believe that a seance was conducted to contact Michael from beyond the grave to acquire his help with writing this wonderful piece. Serio, this is such a good song.
So that’s that, guys. If you are having a major party soon and I happen to be invited, you better put these jams on so I can sing along and dance and give away the appearance of being hip.
