UK Top 40 # 38 – 37

Read the original post here:

This time around it’s two songs by artists I have heard of, but whose work I am unfamiliar with.

38: Good For You – Selena Gomez (Aware of you, but never heard any of your stuff)

Breathy vocals. Annoying accent. Gouy far ya? More anti-feminist nonsense. Verse melody fine, but repetitive and plain. Unexciting. Oh, that’s supposed to be the chorus. We have the requisite silent moment. Some guy comes in to rap. People are still doing this? It was old when I was 18. Presumably before Miss Gomez was born. Is that it? it appears to be about sex.

37: Want To Want Me – Jason Derulo (Aware of you, but never heard any of your stuff)

Instant start. Clearly Jackson influenced. At least it’s catchy. Sounds like a Summertime song, fun and bouncy. The vocals do get annoying in places, but not like all the breathy, affected, accent-accentuated crap. It’s the first song so far that has got the basics right, and hasn’t had a randomer walking in off the street to rap in the background or the dreaded silent moment. It appears to be about sex.
