It's mainstream pop and R&B day! No complaint here for day 21.
Song 201: Backstreet Boys - The One
It's the words everyone wants to hear when they're in a relationship: I am that person to help you anytime, anyplace, always. With lyrics like these, what girl didn't fall for the Backstreet Boys?
I do like how at first it sounds dramatic, slowly melting into a happy humming tune. This isn't cheese, this is a jam you can never get tired of.
Song 202: Lady Antebellum - Need You Now
It's easy to see why people love it, it's melodic, the harmonies are beautiful, and quite mesmerizing. Sure, it's a drunk call to the person they love, but if that's what they feel, there's no reason to resist anymore.
Song 203: Madonna - Hung Up
Not knowing it sampled Abba, I thought it had a nostalgic feel mixed with disco, and honestly, who don't like disco? I guess we can thank a bunch of Swedish meatballs who revived Madonna's career.
Song 204: Lupe Fiasco - The Show Goes On
Having the annual vacation to Las Vegas, there is a need to listen to something while in the car. Not knowing many stations, the good old R&B channel would do. And when this song came on, my siblings would start singing. I had no idea what the song was, but it grew on me. Another song that all of us like added to the list. Keep going strong Lupe!
Song 205: Timbaland ft SoShy - Morning After Dark
I don't know where the original music video went, I couldn't find a clearer version, and most of the results I get are featuring Nelly Furtado... nothing wrong with her, but I like it when it's the two of them. Plus, the music video is a freaking film...familiar vampires?
Song 206: Owl City - Deer In The Headlights
It's a cute and confused love song, cause he doesn't know what will happen. He thought he found the one, but the bruises are the proof. Sigh, Adam's just got to keep fishing...
Song 207: Lights - Second Go
This song sounds like it came from a video game, and I would definitely play if the soundtrack sounded like this. Plus, she's painting a house in the video, how adorable is that? That's just her style. Sweet.
Song 208: Leona Lewis - Bleeding Love (Jason Nevins Radio Mix)
Lewis is undeniably talented, but every song she's released has been flawless, but they're not her material. Hope she shows more of herself with the years to come. Probably then we can have a song from her that gets overplayed again. For now: you cut me open... keep digging deeper.
Song 209: Florence & The Machine - Dog Days Are Over
trailer. And I did watch this movie: I don't see how people didn't like this? I thought the novel sounded selfish, but I didn't get far into it; plus, the scenery in this movie made me come to life!
Back to Florence: it's a happy song! Well, I think it is. It's about a revolt, and the succession it leads. Happiness is finally here, no more anger within ourselves! It's just an uplifting song, and brings so much joy when I hear it. Powerful indeed!
Song 210: Utada Hikaru - Keep Tryin'
I think her message is about going on through life even though there may be hard times. Everyone keeps moving forward, and so should you. Then again, a world full of Utadas would definitely make the world more productive... or me at least d":
