  • My favorite part of Before He Cheats is that karaoke line - the shade. Like she knows she can blow anyone out of the water with her voice, and whatever tart he went with is only minimally talented.

    It also makes it awkward if you actually attempt that song in karaoke.

      Ah, have you?

      I think I mentioned before that I saw Carrie live for the first time last October and "Before He Cheats" was the highlight. It was the penultimate performance and it felt like the whole crowd had just been waiting for it. It was a pretty special moment to have 12,000 people belting one of my favourite choruses of all-time.

                                      • Hi Akini

                                        I hope you're keeping well at the moment amidst this dreadful COVID-19 pandemic. At least Dua Lipa has come through with a cracking album full of absolute delights. <3

                                        01.(05) Dua Lipa - Physical (Greatest Gainer)

                                        Iirc you weren't keen on this initially so it's amazing to see this turnaround in affection for Physical. It's easily one of my big songs of the year so far. Exquisite pop that couldn't be more perfect imo.

                                        02.(NE) Dua Lipa - Boys Will Be Boys (Highest Debut)

                                        For a closing track, this really caught me off guard. I love the musicality on the backing track. I described the song as a showstopper from a film as its got such a grandness about it. The orchestra gives the song a richness and adds that atmospheric feel. It almost seems out of place with the majority of the album being non stop bops but i actually think this is quite a smart closing track.

                                        03.(NE) Dua Lipa - Levitating

                                        This is so irresistibly good. Just a pure magical disco moment that gives me 70s throwback vibes, but still feeling very 2020 too.

                                        07.(NE) Dua Lipa - Good in Bed

                                        I'm quite surprised to see this appear higher than the other album tracks. For me personally, this was the weak link in an otherwise almighty pop album. It's not terrible but i really do find the chorus underwhelming. With a solid sing-a-long type of chorus more akin to Physical this would've been another old skool flavoured gem.

                                        10.(NE) Dua Lipa - Cool

                                        "never running out of juice" that Lizzo influence. I wonder if Lizzo helped to inspire this album. It's such a great track and Dua's vocals shine throughout this album.

                                        11.(NE) Dua Lipa - Hallucinate

                                        This is the unashamed bop that we all need in our lives. I'm not even sure its possible to listen to Hallucinate without wanting to bop even if its just whilst sitting in your chair. Absolute anthem! <3

                                        12.(NE) Dua Lipa - Pretty Please

                                        This is such a sexy sounding track. The bassline is so slick but then each track has a delicious bassline tbh. Whilst i enjoy this track, i don't think its single worthy.

                                        13.(NE) Dua Lipa - Love Again

                                        Again, that symphonic intro instantly makes this song sound rich. Strings + disco = EPIC The pre-chorus is amazing. <3 ("show me, the heavens right here baby").

                                        The modern day classic. Admittedly, i have already listened to this so much since it first got released that i don't really feel the need to listen to this so much now. My focus is on these new discoveries on the album but it's a classic.

                                        Aww so low? With the music video getting released the other day, i'd been playing this quite a fair bit over the last 48 hours. It's already in strong contention for being my highest new entry tonight. Although another "break" song is proving to be strong competition too.

                                        I wasn't keen on this at all when it first came out. Maybe the sunshine and warm weather added with the sheer boredom of being isolated at home with the inability to go anywhere has forced me to like this more, i don't know but i've been enjoying this more since checking out the album yesterday.

                                            As a devout homebody, I don't think this is breaking me the same way it's breaking most other people, but I do miss the freedom of clubbing, going to the movies, getting fast food on a Friday evening. I hope, on the other end of this, we're all more grateful for the small things we've all taken for granted.

                                            Iirc you weren't keen on this initially so it's amazing to see this turnaround in affection for Physical. It's easily one of my big songs of the year so far. Exquisite pop that couldn't be more perfect imo.
                                            The 180 that my opinion has done on Dua Lipa in the last 36 hours is astounding! I think I'd always liked "Physical"; "Don't Start Now" was the song that I felt was grossly overrated...and I like that a good bit now, too.

                                            For a closing track, this really caught me off guard. I love the musicality on the backing track. I described the song as a showstopper from a film as its got such a grandness about it. The orchestra gives the song a richness and adds that atmospheric feel. It almost seems out of place with the majority of the album being non stop bops but i actually think this is quite a smart closing track.
                                            I'm a sucker for message/statement songs like this one, so it was a clear standout from play one. The orchestra gives it that lustrous grandness indeed! I love how left-field a closer it was.

                                            This is so irresistibly good. Just a pure magical disco moment that gives me 70s throwback vibes, but still feeling very 2020 too.
                                            I danced in my living room to this one! It's so frothy and fun!

                                            I'm quite surprised to see this appear higher than the other album tracks. For me personally, this was the weak link in an otherwise almighty pop album. It's not terrible but i really do find the chorus underwhelming. With a solid sing-a-long type of chorus more akin to Physical this would've been another old skool flavoured gem.
                                            For me, this sums up a good chunk of millennial dating!

                                            "never running out of juice" that Lizzo influence. I wonder if Lizzo helped to inspire this album. It's such a great track and Dua's vocals shine throughout this album.
                                            Lizzo, ha powuh >>>

                                            This is the unashamed bop that we all need in our lives. I'm not even sure its possible to listen to Hallucinate without wanting to bop even if its just whilst sitting in your chair. Absolute anthem! <3
                                            This one is fun, though as far as bops go, it plays second fiddle to "Levitating" for me!

                                            This is such a sexy sounding track. The bassline is so slick but then each track has a delicious bassline tbh. Whilst i enjoy this track, i don't think its single worthy.
                                            Agree that this one isn't single-worthy! It's kinda insane how every song on the album is good, though.

                                            Carly Rae Jepsen has a song with the same title that I absolutely love, so I was thinking of that track while listening to this one. Dua's is different, but still good!

                                            I'm not sure if I just needed to hear this in the context of the album, but it just clicked with me yesterday. I think I'd always liked its message, but wasn't sold on the production, but those days are gone now. I wouldn't say it's a classic for me, but it is much-beloved among so many pop fans!

                                            I haven't really been following the era, so I wasn't aware that this one was a single or that it had a video. I'll have to check the video out.
