    Born to Die and Norman F**king Rockwell are two great places to start. The former was my #2 album of the 2010s and the latter my #16.

    Same on "Made for Now". It's got an extremely uplifting melody. I remember feeling blue one day, in a pre-pandemic world, and that song lifted my spirits and got me to go to my favourite club, where I had an immense time!

    It's actually the same guy I mentioned a week ago. We reconciled, climbed a mountain, went for dinner, and Sunday's list pretty much soundtracked the transportation parts of that day.

Thanks for the introduction to it!
    Work's stressed me out so much in recent weeks, I joked about the latter scenario with a friend!

    My brain recalls you knowing "Fancy"! Was today your first time hearing it? I really could've sworn we spoke about it before.

They decided to give themselves a brand-new name as a duo, so that's what I'm using too. It also inspired me to revisit Bruno in general ("Finesse" still slaps. Hard). Apparently this is on-track to top the Hot 100 in the coming weeks, and I'm all for more turnover after "Drivers License"s protracted run at No. 1.
    Hmm...I totally get that criticism and I definitely don't think it's in the vicinity of Bruno's best work, but I love its smoothness. Given some of the trash chart-toppers we've had in the past, I'd welcome "Leave the Door Open" at #1. That being said, it does stay stuck in gear two/three for me. It lacks a climax and the lyrics aren't strong enough for it to be climax-less and excellent in my books.

    "Gold Rush" was in my top 5 from Evermore from day one and it's still there. It's just #5.

    I actually haven't seen any of the Grammy performances yet, so it's definitely just because I like the song. Weirdly enough, I was pretty confident it would debut at #1 here, but I think I was too busy when it premiered to really abandon my go-to songs during that time.

    Aw, "Whatever It Takes" is such an empowering anthem for me! Glad Sunday's list stood out to you, though. The guy that I spent the day with liked a good bit of it, too.
