Top Ten Tuesday: Taylor Swift featuring Brendan Urie (of Panic! At the Disco) - ME!

It's always nice when I don't even have to watch the video for this post because I've seen it several times already. I watched it once on my own, watched it twice with my kids, probably watched it again on my own, saw a making-of video. This has been a big deal and the fact that Old Town Road is holding this one from #1 speaks volumes. I love this song and I'm excited for the album

Top Ten Wednesday Double Feature: Sam Smith & Normani "Dancing With a Stranger" and Khalid "Talk"

This week we have a couple of interesting songs (because I sat with the first one open on my computer and never ended up posting about it...) that are linked, it turns out. The first is a collaboration between Sam Smith and Normani.

It's a very classic sounding song where, as usual, the word "dancing" means something else entirely


And then we have a solo track from Khalid (who I have previously done a Top Ten Tuesday on his collaboration with Normani! Connections!) that is also very enjoyable. Very colorful. I'm excited about this guy!

Top Ten Tuesday: Khalid "Better"

This song is very enjoyable and to vocoder part at the end is awesome. I really want to know if those were real cars or realistic looking CGI, because that driving was amazing.

Top Ten Twosday: Jonas Brothers "Sucker" and Lil Nas X featuring Billy Ray Cyrus "Old Town Road"

Hey hey everyone! So I've got two songs for you this week. The first is the first single from the Jonas Brothers in 6 years and it was so anticipated and so ravenously received that it became the 34th single to debut at #1 (the last one was Ariana Grande's "7 Rings" which was part of the last Top Ten Tuesday. I apparently can't handle #1 debuts lol). This song is good, but I wonder if people mostly hear it as a Nick Jonas/DNCE collaboration. I don't know what the Jonas Brothers sounded like, really, so that's what it sounds like to me, which isn't all bad actually!




And then this song I guess is part of a Red Dead Redemption meme? And then Billy Ray Cyrus jumped on a collaboration with the original rapper and then the song jumped from #15 straight up to #1!

New Countdown (October 2018): Eyes on the Prize

twentyonepilots. I just realized how appropriate this is for October
Hey. So the last time you heard me on this show, I was talking about switching up the format a little bit to catch up. Well this is the first episode of that and I think it went fairly well. I'm hoping to get these out with a fair amount of regularity, then get back to doing week-by-week. But holding this format in my back pocket if I might need it. Enjoy!

Cardi B & Bruno Mars "Please Me"

This song debuted at #5 this week. The video isn't available yet, so here's the audio!

I just listened to a podcast about their previous collaboration: The New Jack Swing throwback song "Finesse (Remix)" and it's interesting how this is also a90's Throwback feeling song!
