Red Hot Chili Peppers – "I Could Have Lied" – Song Discussion

The early 90’s were a special time for music. After the whirlwind 80’s where synth pop dominated, we started a new decade with more diversity and artists who refused to fit into a pre-determined mold. Every type of genre was evolving and there was truly something for everybody. So many aspects of this time can […]

The Cheetah Girls – “Cinderella” – Song Discussion

Over the years, Disney has done a lot of things wrong; they’ve put out plenty of lackluster shows, rebooted series’ that shouldn’t have been rebooted, and put out less than exciting movies. But the one thing they absolutely did right was the Cheetah Girls. Now, the Cheetah Girls are technically a fictional girl group, albeit […]

“The Whole Of The Moon” – The Waterboys – Song Discussion

For this post, we’re going to be talking about mid 80’s folk rock. Now, I usually try not to discuss hit singles on here because normally there are more worthwhile songs to talk about. But this one wasn’t necessarily popular upon it’s initial release, so I guess that’s an exception to that rule. Besides that, […]

Taylor Swift – “The Archer” – Song Discussion

Taylor Swift’s most recent releases have been, well, uninspiring to say the least. I wasn’t a fan of Reputation nor am I interested in her two most recent singles, “ME!” and “You Need To Calm Down”. Swift was an artist that I looked up to for her vulnerability and storytelling, albeit the victim playing at […]

MGMT – “Of Moons, Birds & Monsters” – Song Discussion

MGMT is a band that is quite possibly best known for their use of pop hooks and melodies combined with psychedelic inspired guitar and lots of synthesizer. Most people probably recognize the singles “Kids” and “Electric Feel”, and most people would also probably recognize their album cover art for their debut record, Oracular Spectacular. But […]

Bring Me The Horizon – “heavy metal” – Song Discussion

Bring Me The Horizon is a band that has changed so drastically in the fifteen years they’ve been together it’s almost hard to believe they’re the same group of people. Initially starting out in the metalcore/deathcore genre, they’ve expanded into alternative rock territory and have even incorporated aspects of electronica and pop into their sound. […]

Death Cab For Cutie – “Company Calls” & “Company Calls Epilogue” – Song Discussions

We Have The Facts And We’re Voting Yes, the second studio album recorded by indie rock band Death Cab For Cutie was released on March 21, 2000. The record is centered around the theme of a broken relationship, was produced by then-guitarist Chris Walla, and contains no singles, as unusual as that is. No promotional […]

All Time Low – “Poppin’ Champagne” – Song Discussion

Behold, here we have one of pop punk’s absolute greatest treasures. Soon after being signed to a major label and releasing their debut EP, Put Up Or Shut Up, All Time Low released their full length second studio album titled So Wrong, It’s Right on September 25th 2007. So Wrong, It’s Right was the epitome […]

Fleetwood Mac – “I’m So Afraid” – Song Discussion

This is an exciting article to write because this happens to be one of my favorite songs off of one of my favorite records from one of my favorite bands. “I’m So Afraid” closes out Fleetwood Mac’s second eponymous album released in 1975 which also includes other very well known songs from the band such […]

The 1975 – “It’s Not Living (If It’s Not With You)” – Song Discussion

If there’s anything we should expect from The 1975, it’s to not expect anything. “It’s Not Living (If It’s Not With You)” is the third single released from their upcoming album A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships and is the most listenable of the three released so far (there are a few promotional singles released […]
