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.

No Drug Like Me album cover

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.

Locket album cover

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.

Forever Always album cover

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.

Gimme The Loot album cover

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.

5% TINT album cover

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.

You Only Like Me With The Lights Out album cover

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.

Rivers and Roads album cover

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.

Lovers Rock album cover

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.

Ruin Your Night album cover

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.

Crush album cover

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.

Loving Is Easy album cover

Week 1: Jan 1 - Jan 4

Loving Is Easy by Rex Orange County

Rex Orange County makes another catchy and relatable love ballad.
