“Lemonade” – Daniel Revel Miller

Introducing: Daniel Revel Miller! This artist contacted me with his new single “Lemonade”, and I love it. He seems very talented – he wrote, produced, and performed this song as well as all of his other songs in his bedroom! Sounds pretty good for a bedroom recording studio. “Lemonade” is very catchy and commercial, summery, poppy, feel good, and fun. Great instrumental. This video got 6,000 views in one week. Pretty good for an emerging artist. Best of luck to Daniel, hope he succeeds.

“Round And Round” – Black Dada

This song is so commercial it kills me. It’s the definition of sell-out pop – it’s about BOOTIES. I complain a lot on this blog, but when it comes down to it, I’m still listening to these stupid songs and loving the crap out of them. While this song could’ve been so much better had it been about something meaningful, it still sounds good talking about booties. I talk about instrumentals a lot and that’s because you can’t make a crap instrumental and sell it. However, think about how many songwriters get paid for their horrible lyrics about booties/strippers and get rich – they can thank their producers for that money. In the pop music scene, instrumentals are crucial to having a great song. This is not to say songwriters suck, because that’s obviously ridiculous – sometimes lyrics are the best part of the song, but it’s the instrumental that makes you dance. But back to Black Dada, it’s a really really catchy song and I really hate admitting I like songs like this, but god I LOVE them. Check it out I guess.

“Just you and me.. and your booty.

We are a perfect match.”

Words to live by.

Oh me oh my I love this song! Such a great summer song, which I guess comes hand-in-hand with its title. It’s feel good, it’s fun, it’s catchy, it’s synthy, it’s gold. Love love love it. It’s on repeat right now. I don’t kid. I have to look into this Gavin guy, see what he’s all about. I like what he’s about so far. Niiice.

More good music from the guy with the cool name! Haven’t mentioned Cam in awhile, wasn’t very impressed until I saw this song. It’s very poppy and commercial & I love the instrumental. Good stuff Mr. Meekins, good stuff. Just another college white dude trying to rap..haha. Ahhh how I amuse myself. So many songs nowadays are about girls who are all about partying/being crazy/stripping…man I better let myself go, and QUICKLY.

“Limb By Tung” – Cam’ron & Vado vs Cutty Ranks

Wow this is one of the most interesting songs I’ve heard in awhile. Very cool, very different. I have no idea how to categorize it, it’s reggae meets hip hop meets commercial/somewhat pop but not really meets I don’t know meets run-on sentence. I’m just gonna click a bunch of buttons.

It’s short and sweet, an awesome little jam (especially for summer). I’m kind of astounded by it, I don’t have much else to say. Listen for yourself and see what you think.

“So Obvious” – Runner Runner

A couple days ago this song was popping up on some music blogs & I listened but was unimpressed, this band seems pretty cliché. Then the next day my sister came home from NYC holding a Runner Runner single in her hand. She told me someone handed it to her on the street and I should look into it. Didn’t realize it at first, but the single that’s on this CD, “So Obvious”, was the same music video that I had watched a couple days ago. I don’t know what it is, but someone or something out there REALLY wants me to post this song. So I will. “So Obvious” is spelled “So Obcious” on the CD…OOPS. I won’t judge…

Anyway check these guys out, I’m still not convinced that they can bring something new or great to the table, but I do like their song “Hay Alli”, which I can’t find on YouTube. If you can find it anywhere let me know!

One more thing…it pisses me that it’s spelled “Hay Alli”….IT’S “HEY” DAMNIT.

“Billionaire (Party Rock Remix)” – Travie McCoy Feat. Bruno Mars, LMFAO & Gucci Mane

LMFAO continues to shove good music in my face and say “I’M YOUR FAVORITE ARTIST”. I’ve been a big LMFAOhead for a couple years now and I haven’t doubted them for a second. Saw them live once, it was so much fun. They’re even crazier than you would expect. This new Party Rock remix is pretty different from anything else they’ve done – most of their songs/remixes are uptempo club bangers, while this one is more of a chill, jam to it in your car-banger. Definitely makes “Billionaire” better in my opinion, but maybe I’m just biased since I hear “Billionaire” 11+ times per day on one radio station. ENOUGH ALREADY. Z100 needs to drop its 10-song rotation and start playing “Government Name” by Alex Young some new music. I’m gonna write a letter. Srsly u guyz.
