Song of the Week
I listen to a lot of music, and I'm personally interested in seeing how my taste in music changes over time. As such, I've started this very small pet project: I document my favourite song of the week.
This project is definitely still a work in progress - I think there's a lot of cool statistical analysis I can do here. For now, I'm pretty busy, so it'll just be a simple list.
Week 11: Mar 8 - Mar 14
No Drug Like Me by Carly Rae Jepsen
Carly's back with more bops. What else can I say.
Week 10: Mar 1 - Mar 7
Locket by Crumb
Locket is a tantalizing earworm, a combination of smooth rock and jazz-like elements that's been stuck in my head for the past few weeks.
Week 9: Feb 22 - Feb 28
Forever Always by Peter Cottontale, Chance the Rapper, Daniel Caesar, Madison Ryann Ward, YEBBA
A surprisingly star-studded feel-good song - something that definitely helps with a rough week of work.
Week 8: Feb 15 - Feb 21
Gimme The Loot by The Notorious B.I.G
Considering the prominence of "Gimme The Loot" as a producer tag and adlib, I thought it'd be nice to take it back to the OG. Biggie is just a straight killer on this track.
Week 7: Feb 8 - Feb 14
5% TINT by Travis Scott
Travis weaves together a spooky vibe with a haunting piano chord, barebones beats, and his signature eerie autotune.
Week 6: Feb 1 - Feb 7
You Only Like Me With The Lights Out by Avid Dancer
Strong, raw guitars and an equally raw voice addictingly convey a truth that nobody wants to hear.
Week 5: Jan 25 - Jan 31
Rivers and Roads by The Head and the Heart
A much-too-relatable emotional ballad about missed friends and love songs - bread and butter for any university student.
Week 4: Jan 18 - Jan 24
Lovers Rock by TV Girl
Lovers Rock is entrancing, smooth pop at its best - something I imagine in the background of an upscale restaurant.
Week 3: Jan 11 - Jan 17
Ruin Your Night by Sorcha Richardson
This is the catchiest sanger (sad banger) I've heard so far. The lyrics are so simple, yet so depressing.
Week 2: Jan 4 - Jan 10
Crush by Tessa Violet
Crush is what I love about modern pop: innovative and flashy production backed by simple but effective lyrics.
Week 1: Jan 1 - Jan 4
Loving Is Easy by Rex Orange County
Rex Orange County makes another catchy and relatable love ballad.
