Song of the week:
Sigrid — ‘Plot Twist’
This is a song that seems to have been conceived by writing down phrases associated with popular tweet formats — title aside, we also like the “SHOTS FIRED!” shout — but apart from obviously being the best song of the last seven days ‘Plot Twist’ gets the top spot this week because its artwork features Sigrid wearing A SCARF WITH THE TITLE OF THE SONG ON. Watch and learn, lesser pop entities. This is how you do it.
Wrong of the week:
The MØ single is almost comically underwhelming but you will be pleased to hear that the past week has brought with it no song that is truly offensive or terrible. But that’s not to say it’s all plain sailing…
- Hey do you remember when Lady Gaga came out with ‘Just Dance’ and it felt like she was pushing forward the sound of pop music? She’s done a song that sounds like loads of other stuff on Spotify.
- Hey do you remember when Swedish duo Sharks came out with ‘Wait’ and it felt like they could be the most exciting girl duo since Mini Viva? They’ve done a song that sounds like loads of other stuff on Spotify.
- Hey do you remember when Hurts came out (THAT’S ENOUGH OF THAT THANKS — ED)
NEW THIS WEEK: We’re trying out doing the playlist on Apple Music too. Let’s see how it goes.
