More One-Sentence Summaries of Popular Songs

Music Once More!
I've done one-sentence summaries of comics off-and-on and did it for music once. I felt like doing it for audio again, so here we go!

Song Summaries Start...

"Work from Home," by Fifth Harmony
Also known as the other song about working that doesn't involve Rhianna, this song is a dull mess of droning repetition. 

"Can't Stop the Feeling," by Justin Timberlake
This is a good song, but I really prefer the weird and experimental Timberlake we got on, "Futuresex/Lovesounds," to this one that sounds more like your usual talented singer.

"Panda," by Desiigner
Anytime I hear this I hope it is the Kanye West song that sampled it, because the original song itself is kind of dull.

"All the Way Up," by Fat Joe, Remy Ma, French Montana, and Infared
I'm just happy to see Fat Joe back on the scene as he is a pretty talented guy who seemed to drop off the face of the world for awhile.

"I Took a Pill in Ibiza," by Mike Posner
Here basically is what some people feared techno would become if infected with pop--a blasé mess of dance-beats and empty lyrics masquerading as deep.

"Might Be," by DJ Luke Nasty
It clearly is using weaponized nostalgia to make me like it, but this is a dumb-yet-fun jam.

"Piece by Piece," by Kelly Clarkson
This is a raw and emotional song that serves as another example of how Kelly Clarkson has a great deal skill.

"Cake by the Ocean," by DNCE
It sounds vaguely dirty in a nonsensical way, but I'll be damned if it isn't a catchy ditty.

"Sorry," by Beyoncé
I have to admit I've just never been a big fan of Beyoncé or a hater, and this song does little to make me like her any more or less with its purely decent melody and singing

"Oui," by Jeremih
His first hit was the drab, "Birthday Sex," but since then Jeremih has shown he actually possesses a good deal of singing talent with songs such as this one.

"Love Yourself," by Justin Bieber
Holy crap, I kind of like a Justin Bieber song even though the guy always seems to be trying to make himself appear like a jerk.

Pressing the Stop Playback Button
There are the various songs that have been playing on the radio/Apple Music/Spotify/Tidal/whatever folk use now. Clearly I am cranky about much of today's music and don't seem to like a lot of it. That said, there are still artists I enjoy. Fun all around, eh?
