Zedd/Alessia Cara (4) - Week #28

I apologize for the delay. A combination of stuff.

I must say, the countdown really has been on a down the past week. Everything that happened was so boring. We had some sort of activity this week, however, and not all of it good. Actually, most of it horrible. Mainly because of two awful Hit-Bound debuts. I will finally review Wild Thoughts, for those who have been asking me, even though normally I don't review Hit-Bound debuts. However, the countdown was not limited to only disappointing events: let's start with our exits.

Comments on debuts:
Redbone is easily the strangest song I have heard all year. It is so confusing. I have yet to completely formulate an opinion on it as I fell distant every time I hear it, I cannot catch on to anything. For now it is in dark blue.

This is one of the first times when I have seen Hits 1 modify a song. Yeah, they did edit Quavo and Lunchmoney Lewis out of songs, but this alteration is major. They completely changed the song. Instead of a mellow song, we now have an artificial beat that does not go at all with the song. Remixes to a song almost never work. We have the select few who work, but this is not one. There is the same beat all throughout the song. Don't get me wrong, Bruno Mars's voice is still great. However, David Guetta's remix messes everything up, so that the beat contrasts too much with the song.

4. Paramore - Hard Times
1. Macklemore/Skylar Grey - Glorious
8. Julia Michaels - Uh Huh
10. The Chainsmokers - Honest
6. All Time Low - Good Times
12. Carly Rae Jepsen - Cut To The Feeling
9. Demi Lovato - Sorry Not Sorry (DEBUT)
7. Andy Grammer - Give Love
??. Fall Out Boy - Champion (no opinion, because I never heard it)
13. DJ Khaled/Rihanna/Bryson Tiller - Wild Thoughts (DEBUT)
11. Kesha - Praying (DEBUT)
5. Imagine Dragons - Thunder
2. Ed Sheeran - Galway Girl
3. Shawn Hook featuring Vanessa Hudgens - Reminding Me

I will review Sorry Not Sorry and Praying if (optimism) they debut the countdown. Right now I will take time to review Wild Thoughts, since people have been asking and I have been lacking time. So here we go.

It starts off with the typical rapper's introduction, screaming their name, since they are, the best. However, DJ Khaled also says «We The Best music!». So before we even hear a glimpse of the song, DJ Khaled lets us know that this is his song, he produced it. Why? I don't know. But whetever. There is also some guitar in the song, that alone would have been fine, but with DJ Khaled's intro contrasts too much. Then Rihanna comes in and half raps. I can get how you could like Rihanna's rapping, she is similar to others. But personally, Rihanna has declined significantly from Diamonds, Pon De Replay, and all her good songs. Personally, I find I stopped liking her music when Sia stopped writing for her. Rihanna, back to the song, actually has an average rap voice. Not too bad. However, I expected her to at least sing a bit. When I first heard this song, I said: «Okay, so Rihanna decided to do an intro for herself, saying her name or whatever» but then I realized that she was already starting the strange lyrics. And when she rapped throughout the whole song, I was seriously disappointed. Rihanna can do better. And then Bryson Tiller enters with the typical rap voice. So the main reason I don't like this song is that is sounds like a typical rap song, yet they want is to be a bit poppy or classic, and that sounds a bit awkward. Oh! And there's also the guitar riff, which is a complete copy. I mean, it's okay. But I can't give it to the song since it is a exact copy of Santana. I could have literally done DJ Khaled's job in this song in half an hour. So this song is a bit lazy. I think I covered everything. I did go on a bit of a rant, though. Sorry. But there you have it, the reasons why I cannot stand Wild Thoughts.

Honestly, I did not expect Stay to return to #1. But I will take it over Shawn Mendes any day. Unfortunately, the latter dropped less than I hoped. Otherwise, we have the same songs in the top 6 for three weeks running, so I have nothing else to say.

At #8, #9, and #10, we have three top 10 re-entries, which I will take, no problem. Our top 10 exits include Body Like A Back Road, happily, Paris, which thankfully dropped quite a bit, and a leap out of the top 20 by Say You Won't Let Go. That song had its time. It is still good, but it is getting old. 

However, Malibu, Strip That Down, and Most Girls entering the top 20 was definitely expected but not appreciated.

Sadly, Despacito barely missing the top 10 is frustrating. This song is extremely overrated on Hits 1, easily the most frustrating station. When I turn on the radio, there is a 90% chance that Despacito will play within 15 minutes. But I have yet to even hear Despacito on Hits 1.

I just realized that Issues was in the top 20 last week. Seriously?

So I jinxed Crying In The Club last week, so now it dropped a few spots. This song really is flopping, though not as much as Down, which was such a disaster in airplay, I heard it once total.

I am getting tired of voting for Lights Down Low 15 times per week. It should be higher! However, not many people agree with me. Whatever. Not many people agreed with me on I'm The One and it still flopped.

Sooner Or Later was such a flop that I literally stopped wasting my time voting for it. It is easily the most underrated song this year.

We had to go all the way to #28 to get two masterpieces.

Selena Gomez's Fetish did not help my opinion on Bad Liar.

As for our exits, I Don't Wanna Live Forever left! This was my reaction:

Image result for happy face

And Swalla left also, which it deserved.

Top 20 score: 54% okay

Top 5:
1. Sooner Or Later
2. Lights Down Low
3. Despacito
4. Crying In The Club
5. Stay

Bottom 5:
1. Bad Liar
2. I'm The One
3. Play That Song
4. There's Nothing Holdin' Me Back
5. Overwhelming

#1 recommendation for Hits 1: Selena Gomez - Fetish
Throwback pick of the week: PSY - Gangnam Style (don't kill me)
Most missed countdown song: DNCE - Cake By The Ocean

Thanks for viewing!

Album Review #4: Imagine Dragons - Evolve

Sorry I am late for this. I considered not doing this, but why not? This took too long, since I was preoccupied with the farm. Today, I took it relaxed since I am rather tired. I only came home at 2:00.

Track 1: I Don't Know Why (10)
I find this is a calmer version of Believer. The beat is great, and the song overall is really fun. The pre-chorus is extremely powerful. The baseline is exhilarating. The chorus is extremely catchy. And the lyrics are pretty good, too.

Track 2: Whatever It Takes (10)
In this song, the rapping is spot-on, in terms that is is not too repetitive, and not annoying. Dan Reynolds has a great rap voice. However, he still showcases his talent to change pitch powerfully, in the chorus. The hook gives a break from the power, but it is still greatly done, because it tells us clearly that something big is coming up.

Track 3: Believer (9)
I loved this song, because I was glad that Imagine Dragons returned with their rock style. I sort of outgrew this one, though. It still has masterful drumming. However, the screaming has gotten mildly annoying. The lyrics chosen are spectacular, though.

Track 4: Walking The Wire (6.5)
This one is a bit too slow in my opinion. The chorus is still great, but the verses are annoying, since this is not Imagine Dragons' style, so it feels a bit awkward. The chorus, however, gives back points because of the rock feel that I love.

Track 5: Rise Up (9.5)
This song is more of a throwback from Night Visions, because it is more «peaceful» than Believer, I Don't Know Why, and so on. I absolutely adore the songwriting. Although the screaming in the chorus could be a bit better, the verses make up for it. This song is extremely meaningful.

Track 6: I'll Make It Up To You (5.5)
As in Walking The Wire, the verses are a bit awkward, since I am not used to Imagine Dragons with this type of music. The chorus is similar, but I like it for some reason, I don't know why. However, it is a bit too short.

Track 7: Yesterday (2)
The chorus is downright painful to listen to. The screaming is awful. The verses are rather interesting though. I fear that Imagine Dragons are changing too much. There is one electronic instrument that comes in at the second chorus that kills me.

Track 8: Mouth Of The River (0)
The lyrics are too repetitive. Dan Reynolds sings too high. He shouldn't use his falsetto, is sounds awful. And the, what, a sitar maybe, throughout the songs gives me a heartache.

Track 9: Thunder (9)
This song saved the last 2/3 of the album from total disaster. The song is super catchy. Nobody tries too hard, not the producers, not Dan Reynolds, not anybody. That's what makes this song so simple and therefore hard to dislike. I can see how it could be repetitive or how the voice in the chorus could be annoying, but it isn'to to me.

Track 10: Start Over (5)
The lyrics saved this song. Otherwise, it is too repetitive and the music is rather strange. Starting off a song well is key, and the first verse is just awful. I feel as if he is just telling us something just like whatever, did you hear this, like a casual conversation and not a song, for goodness sake! The chorus is fine though and the music is fun.

Track 11: Dancing In The Dark (0)
Oh boy! What is this trash? First of all, I had to turn the volume to max to hear something. Ten I realized that that beat was not my cat batting the litter, but part of the actual song. The autotune is horribly used. The song never changed volume, range, or even words throughout the whole song.

In all, I expected better. The pre-released singles are great, but most of the rest is awful.

Top 3:
1. I Don't Know Why
2. Whatever It Takes
3. Rise Up

Shawn Mendes (2) - Week #27

This post looks rushed. Not an absurd claim: I am late, and I have very little blurbs. However, nothing at all is happening in countdown world. We have no debuts anywhere. The top 5 has not welcomed any debuts or re-entries for three weeks now. We did have a big jump, but that's about it.

Biggest Jump Of The Week: Luis Fonsi/Justin Bieber/Daddy Yankee - Despacito (+21)

Hit-Bound (no change)
1. Shawn Hook/Vanessa Hudgens - Reminding Me
2. Macklemore/Skylar Grey - Glorious
3. Ed Sheeran - Galway Girl
4. Imagine Dragons - Thunder
5. Paramore - Hard Times
6. Katy Perry/Nicki Minaj - Swish Swish
7. Bruno Mars - Versace On The Floor
8. All Time Low - Good Times
9. Childish Gambino - Redbone
10. Andy Grammer - Give Love
11. Julia Michaels - Uh Huh
12. The Chainsmokers - Honest
13. Carly Rae Jepsen - Cut To The Feeling

It turns out that I never heard Fall Out Boy - Champion and that I was judging the wrong song. I cannot find it to listen to it anywhere. It is on Hit-Bound, however.

Cut To The Blurb
The top 5 doesn't change except for Castle On The Hill and There's Nothing Holdin' Me Back swapping. I would have preferred Castle On The Hills at #1, and it seems as though I am alone in that prospect.

It Ain't Me is spending a lot of time at #6. It is still a fantastic song without Kygo, and I hope it can squeeze in one week at #1 before we get another dominator.

Body Like A Back Road is old. Seriously. How did it crack the top 10 five months after it was released? I mentioned before, so close to nobody like this song in the blogging community. Who is even voting for this song? I don't get it. Hopefully it can never peak higher than #7. Hopefully.

Paris re-entering the top 10 is rather disturbing. We need Attention to re-enter and for Despacito to finally crack it.

Feels seemed to have made a large jump on its second week. Great how good songs are appreciated sometimes. However, I have never heard this song on the radio. Not on Sirius XM, not on my local radio.

Bad Liar should leave the top 20 already. It is an awful song and it seems that many people agree with me.

Lights Down Low jumping even a bit makes my day.

So Crying In The Club is actually going to make some sort of appearance here, I hope? Because it is flopping everywhere else.

That's What I Like was #1 on my radio's weekend countdown this week.

Good Time Good Life should not be jumping.

We have had the same bottom 5 for ages. Leave us already!

Swalla having the biggest drop of the week twice in a row does not disturb me. Hopefully it can leave next week.

Wait... HandClap is still here?! What?!

Best for last, and I will not scream and rejoice because you all know how happy I am. This song deserves to be this high and it finally is.

I stretched the blurbs out today, since there was so little to say.

Top 20 score:

Top 5:
1. Sooner Or Later
2. Lights Down Low
3. Despacito
4. Crying In The Club
5. Stay Together

Bottom 5:
1. Bad Liar
2. Good Time Good Life
3. Body Like A Back Road
4. Play That Song
5. I'm The One

#1 recommendation for Hits 1: Little Mix/Stormzy - Power
Throwback pick of the week: Mike Posner - Cooler Than Me
Most missed countdown song: Snakehips/MO - Don't Leave

Comments on debuts:
Crying In The Club is better than any Fifth Harmony song, although it seems that few other people feel this way. I like Camila Cabello's voice in here and the production is amazing! The beat is really catchy.
Calvin Harris does much better in Feels than he does in Slide. The tropical feel he tries to express is much better done here than in Slide. Katy Perry's voice is much better here than in her most recent songs (and all her other ones for that matter). Pharrell sounds amazing in the verses. Last week I couldn't really form an opinion on this song because I hadn't listened to it more than once.

Don't Be Afraid To Catch Blurbs
I will start things off by saying yes, I'm The One is not in orange. DJ Khaled just released Wild Thoughts, with Rihanna and Bryson Tiller, and I explained that that song is absolute trash. That song is so bad that is made I'm The One look like a masterpiece next to it. I can actually see how I'm The One has a beat to it. However, it still is awful. But not the worst on the countdown. Bad Liar, therefore, turns orange.

I really couldn't care less about our #1 as long as it isn't Shawn Mendes's There's Nothing Holdin' Me Back. Our top 20 is really looking spectacular, with a few frustrating flaws.
So close to nobody in the blogging community likes Body Like A Back Road. This song is fake country, and a mix of pop/rap, but being neither at the same time. How did this jump 14 spots?

Strip That Down is growing on me slightly. I like Quavo's verse.

The only debut that jumped from last week was Overwhelming. Good Time Good Life, that's okay, but Stay Together should receive more recognition. Despacito should have reached #1 by now considering how long it has been out and popular.

Kissing Strangers leaving really is disappointing. It was never popular, sadly, but will be one of my favourite songs of the year. Break My Heart leaving is fine.

I really have very little so say nowadays in the countdown. So little is happening,

#1 recommendation for Hits 1: Skye Holland - Her
Most missed countdown song: The Vamps - Wake Up
Throwback pick of the week: OneRepublic - Secrets

Top 5:
1. Despacito
2. Lights Down Low
3. Sooner Or Later
4. Stay Together
5. Crying In The Club

Bottom 5:
1. Bad Liar
2. There's Nothing Holdin' Me Back
3. I'm The One
4. I Don't Wanna Live Forever
5. Body Like A Back Road
