- Code Orange – “My world”
- Kanye West – “Never Give Up Your Family”
- Kacy Hill – “The Seasons Bloom”
Hardcore punk band Code Orange has a lot of ideas in their hardcore brand. “My World” offers a variation of hardcore riffs, vocal styles and atmospheres. Code Orange is at its best with songs like “My World”.
“Never give up on your family” didn’t make the standard version of “Donda”. It was disappointing. Fortunately, with the release of the luxury album, one of West’s most vulnerable tracks saw an official release. West’s voice is painfully heartbreaking, detailing the dynamics of a faltering marriage. “Never Abandon Your Family” continues West’s remarkable series of painful tracks in a new era of his life.
American singer-songwriter Kacy Hill has a knack for indie pop. “Seasons Bloom” radiates warmth and encouragement to the listener. Producers Jim-E Stack and Ariel Rechtshaid create a wonderful track that mixes ambient pop with a chorus that feels like a perfect throwback to the pop era of the 80s and 90s.
- Steve Lacy – “Some”
- Slow pulp – “High”
- Yellow house – “Best views”
Alternative R&B artist Steve Lacy is best known for his song “Dark Red”, which has over two million streams on Spotify. Lacy’s song “Some”, released in 2016, deserves the same attention. While the song might be short, at just under two minutes, the content more than makes up for it. “Some” does an amazing job showcasing Lacy’s soulful vocals.
Slow Pulp is an indie alternative band from Chicago. “High” is the band’s most popular song on Spotify, with over six million plays. This song comes from the group’s 2019 EP “Big Day” and is one of the band’s heaviest songs. “High” begins with an acoustic guitar riff and light vocals courtesy of singer Emily Massey, before plunging into a heavier rock-inspired chorus.
The song “Better Views” by independent group Yellow House is from the 2017 EP “A Carnival of Fears”.
The song begins slowly, but picks up halfway. “Better Views” is incredibly eye-catching and perfect for anyone’s winter playlist.
- Taylor Swift – “All Too Good (10 minute version) (Taylor version) (from the trunk)”
- Hozier – “Shrike”
- Big Red Machine – “Gratitude”
Swift, unable to redeem his masters, decided to re-record his old albums. His album “Red” was the last record to be released again. “All Too Well” on the original record was already a hit, but with the 10-minute version fans are getting new lyrics and more details about Swift’s relationship. With the song now at 10 minutes, it tells the full story of a young relationship and the happiness and pain that comes with it.
“Shrike” is taken from Hozier’s second album “Wasteland, Baby!” It includes popular tracks like “Movement” and “Almost (Sweet Music)”, but “Shrike” deserves just as much recognition and is arguably one of the best songs on the album. Hozier creates a beautiful song with the sweet and sultry feel of the violin, and the lyrics detail a love that will never be forgotten.
Big Red Machine is an independent folk group made up of musicians Justin Vernon and Aaron Dessner. “Gratitude” isn’t heavy on lyrics and relies mostly on melodies and instruments, but luckily that’s Dessner’s strong suit. Dessner perfectly mixes electric guitar and piano and Vernon accompanies it with lyrics about appreciating the land you live on and the food you have.
- Kansas – “Carry on the wayward son”
- Asia – “The heat of the moment”
- Bobby Caldwell – “What You Won’t Do For Love”
“Carry on Wayward Son” is an inspiring song. The chorus alone gets stuck in the listener’s head and is overall perfect for practice or those times when you just need something to keep going.
“Heat Of The Moment” is a classic ’80s love song about the early stages of teenage romance. Basically, it is an apology for mistakes in relationships and mistreatment of your partner.
Lyrics and instrumentals are perfect with “What You Won’t Do for Love” by Bobby Caldwell. It’s about the sacrifices people make for love, and the power that love has in making people strive to keep relationships stable.
- Queen – “Bohemian Rhapsody”
- Toto – “Africa”
- Rick James – “Super Monster”
“Bohemian Rhapsody” is a song to say the least timeless. The song was taken over, deconstructed and analyzed into pieces. That doesn’t change the fact that the song is quite possibly the magnum opus of Queen’s run as a hit group with a chilling vocals and awesome chorus.
Toto’s other songs like “Hold the Line” and “Rosanna” held up very well after their first premiere, but “Africa” will always be special due to the mystical instrumental track which gives the whole song a sense of adventure. and intrigue.
Rick James’ “Super Freak” can best be described as nothing short of a bop. The synth beat didn’t age a single second for a song that came out while people were still boogieing. The lyrics are simple, but that never stopped anyone from having fun with this song.
