The Neighbourhood – “Baby Came Home” – Song Discussion

Do you ever hear a song so captivating that you play on it on repeat a few times more because it’s just that good? That’s this one right here. “Baby Came Home” is one of three songs featured on the Neighbourhood’s 2013 EP I’m Sorry…, and is a song that demonstrates the bands genre bending […]

A Day To Remember – “Same Book But Never The Same Page” – Song Discussion

Common Courtesy is the fifth studio album from A Day To Remember, arriving in late 2013 after 2010’s What Separates Me From You. This record is probably my second favorite from the band, right behind Homesick (it might also be my first, depending on the day). Nonetheless, the project is absolutely wonderful from start to […]

John Mayer – “Slow Dancing In A Burning Room” – Song Discussion

2006’s Continuum is an alum that I came to adore years after its initial release. When I first started really listening to John Mayer, that was the first of his records that actually stuck with me. And it wasn’t even in a sentimental way; to me, that record just made a lot of sense. From […]

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. […]
