16: Kiss Me – Olly Murs (everything I’ve heard has been crap)
I’m sure he’s a nice enough fella, but he also seems like someone you’d never get tired of punching. The hair, the face, the voice, the Essex – everything about him screams ‘hate me’. ‘I want to love you. Give you that loving baby’. I mean, what’s the point? Thousands of years of the written word and that’s the best we can come up with? It feels like something Michael Jackson would have coughed up while dropping one in the trap before realizing that it was beneath anything he would consider writing. The chorus is a little catchy, everything else is upbeat, uptempo crap. It appears to be about sex.
15: Lay It All On Me – Rudimental (Aware of you, but never heard any of your stuff)
Generic single piano dance notes. Ok vocals, keeping the usual accent crap away. There is a chorus, but it’s barren of quality. I don’t know if can get to number one at this rate. It has restored my faith in knowing that chart music is almost exclusively awful. The 2000s were bad, this is equally terrible. It appears to be about sex.
Does anyone know of any good recent chart music – Pop, dance, or other? Let me know in the comments!
