Run Away With Me Still

Spin recently made a statement so bold that a contemporary pop-detractor* such as I had no choice but to actually do the unthinkable: listen to Carly Rae Jepsen. Brennan Carley simply wrote “Carly Rae Jepsen’s ‘Run Away With Me’ Is the Best Pop Song of 2015 Yet.”

Seven months into a year that pushed out pop hits from pop princesses like Taylor Swift (hey there, “Bad Blood”), Selena Gomez (she’s upping her music cred via a collab with A$AP Rocky wherein she channels Lana Del Rey – for what reason, I cannot say), and Demi Lovato, Brennan Carley’s assertion is a pretty bold one. But the move of lady-lead pop toward EDM-influenced danceable numbers has given way to Jepsen’s “Run Away With Me.” If you’re the last person on the planet (apparently) who hasn’t seen the lo-fi vid, enjoy it below:



Week in Review

Rod Stewart - Carpool Karaoke

Source: YouTube.com. Please note: video may not be suitable for work.

Although the The Late Late Show with James Corden may be the sixth most watched late-night talk show, it hasn’t stopped well-known celebrities, including Justin Bieber, Mariah Carey, and Iggy Azalea from partaking in Corden’s Carpool Karaoke. The segment, which is half interview, half jam session, takes place in Corden’s car as he and a musician drive to his studio. The other day, Corden might have had his most famous celebrity musician yet; a British rocker named Rod Stewart. The most interesting tidbit we learned from Stewart is that when toured with The Faces they would check into Holiday Inns as Fleetwood Mac because they were banned from the hotel chain for “smashing up hotel rooms.” Also featured in the clip is rapper A$AP Rocky, who pops out from behind the backseat to perform a verse from his recently released track, “Everyday.” The popular tune features sample vocals by Rod Stewart from the 1972 Python Lee Jackson song, “In a Broken Dream.” We hope there's more segements of Carpool Karaoke to come.

Names You Need to Know Yesterday: James Bay

James Bay

Though I wouldn’t go so far as to assert that naming One Direction as fans should place an artist in the annals of music history, 24-year-old British singer-songwriter James Bay does just that – and so much more. The up-and-coming musician has already won Critics’ Choice at the 2015 BRIT Awards, and the quantities of nominations for his accolades are creeping up. Not too shabby for a kid who has only released one album, Chaos and the Calm, in March of this year.

Last night’s “Midsummer Classic” at Great American Ballpark in Cincinnati turned out to be a memorable one, with the American League taking a 6 - 3 victory over the National League. However, the real highlight of this year’s MLB All-Star Game festivities was the new and improved Home Run Derby. Major League Baseball was able to take an event that has become increasingly stale year after year and turn it into an edge-of-your-seat, nail-biting experience for everyone watching.
