18: Marvin Gaye – Charlie Puth (Never heard of you)

Charlie-Puth-–-Marvin-Gaye-ft_-Meghan-Trainor-mp3-download

Is this going to sully Gaye’s name? Well, they have made him a verb. 50s candy store rock. This guy looks like a complete twat. Vocals are ok, a distinct lack of melody apart from that single line. More with the spittle drums.That Trainor woman has a smackable face too, with her tongue always creeping out through her teeth and her twee, soulless non-kawaii eyes. This is cheesy pap, not even catchy enough to mention. Gaye is rolling in his grave. It appears to be about sex.

17: Don’t Be So Hard On Yourself – Jess Glynne – (never heard of you)

No no no no no no no no. Terrible vocals. Yes, yes I’m sure you can sing but sort out the accent accentuation. Well, at least it’s fast and it does have an actual chorus without any of the anti-chorus crap. It does of course have the silent moment before the chorus, as is mandatory. There’s a good song in here, just tone down the crap and you’ll be ok. It’s about thinking you’re not very good at sex.

What does everyone make of these songs – good, bad, indifferent? Let us know in the comments!
