  • Re: Carbon's 2017 Faves | TOP 10 ::: SINGLES #10-9

    It Ain't Me is cute, lots of people around me seem to really rate it. I'm more just... appreciative.

      I get ready, I get all dressed up
      To go nowhere in particular
      It doesn't matter if I'm not enough
      For the future or the things to come
      'Cause I'm young and in love


      [youtube:38gmjaac]3-NTv0CdFCk[/youtube:38gmjaac]

      A more positive song for a change, singing about something very general and human in such a warm way, celebrating youth in all its naivete and joy. Sounds cinematic and absolutely wonderful, her vocal delivery is less sombre, more light and hopeful. [/center:38gmjaac]

        Don't love the ones who trust you
        It's just not in your heart
        You're a teasing little twister and
        They're dancers in the dark


        [youtube:tx1sgs9w]gnVTrT8aWdk[/youtube:tx1sgs9w]

        Coming as a complete change from the electropop sound of her previous album, Undercover is a stunning piano ballad about wanting a simple relationship with no overanalyzing, making a big fuss over it, and most of all with no big trust or love involved. At least that's what I've taken from it. It's a relatable tune, and most of all, it's written beautifully. The ending of the song gives me chills. [/center:tx1sgs9w]

          I never connected that much with "It Ain't Me," but "Love" is gorgeous!

            I'm not all in my feelings
            Just tellin' you how I feel
            'Cause I got caught up in a moment
            Tell me where you wanna take it from here


            [youtube:2boz7j86]8ll0PrpvZvI[/youtube:2boz7j86]

            I enjoyed Mya's latest album before, but this newest song just wowed me! Actually made me interested in her discography. It's so sensual, dark, sexy and makes me wanna run away and become a stripper. The little twinkly sound intro is just perfection and I can't believe such a song went by mostly unnoticed. And it made my avatar of course. [/center:2boz7j86]

            • Glad to see Disconnect make someone else's list. I'll never forgive Clean Bandit for screwing Marina over like that and paying the song dust

                  Yessss at Betsy! Even though imo Waiting doesn't belong to her holy trinity, it's still great to see her so close to your Top 10

                  Oh and cool to see who the girl in your avi is, I always thought in small it kinda looks like a mix between Tinashe and Marina and the Diamonds
                  ¡Eh, mamá!

                          • [center:3b4h36cp]5. Kate Nash - Call Me



                            You can call me baby
                            When you feel like that
                            Call me, call me, call me, you will call me
                            You know I'll get right back


                            [youtube:3b4h36cp]LE3_nCyQ61I[/youtube:3b4h36cp]

                            Kate's career has gone in a weird path, and her recent output has been hit-or-miss for me. This song turned out to be one of the best things she's ever done! It's a shame she's become so irrelevant in the mainstream world because the world needs a song so positive, warm, cuddly and genuine. I love the structure and the stark contrast between the verses, the buildup and the chorus. [/center:3b4h36cp]

                              And if you've gone cold, you don't let it show
                              There's a deeper place that we can both go
                              You tell me that I'm wild eyed, baby you're just being kind
                              Never going outside, we are working overtime


                              [youtube:1ados6gz]oNEkBWq5C1g[/youtube:1ados6gz]

                              Rae's debut album felt a bit basic for me, so at first I wasn't even interested in hearing her new stuff. Heard this by accident and fell in love instantly. It's a carpe diem type of song, full of lush and dreamy layers, while the repetition in the chorus makes you want to dance and feel happy and carefree. One more underrated should-have-been hit of 2017. I've been replaying it like crazy and I wish more people would. [/center:1ados6gz]

                              • [center:31nfjk2p]3. Austra - I Love You More Than You Love Yourself



                                The past, how thick it grows
                                Shakes up what you didn’t know
                                Proceeding, try a little bit harder, baby
                                You’re indifferent
                                You’re a stranger to what makes you feel good


                                [youtube:31nfjk2p]AE9ePc0OTjs[/youtube:31nfjk2p]

                                Austra released the best song of their career with this one. Not only is the video brilliant - depicting the story of astronaut Lisa Nowak (google her) and casting light on the issue of depression - but the song itself is so well written, packed with emotion, and unique because of the singer's haunting vocals. This was a contender for SOTY at one point, but alas, two other songs beat it when they came out.

                                • Weren't familiar with the recent three tracks

                                  Kate Nash - Call Me - this is good, although I feel like the chorus is a bit underwhelming. The verses are much stronger imo, haven't listened to her in years btw
                                  Rae Morris - Do It - Oh wait, I've actually heard this before as I've seen it quite a lot on different charts here and a few people mentioning her, interestingly it never clicked with me until now, can see this growing on me a lot and ending up on my 2018 chart #lateho
                                  Austra - I Love You More Than You Love Yourself - wow, this song really hits the nail on the head, brilliant lyrics, and voice too! I'm not too keen on the production though but still, all things considered, a strong track.

                                    Feels like I just woke up
                                    Like all this time I've been asleep
                                    Even though it's not who I am
                                    I'm not afraid of who I used to be


                                    [youtube:1qg51xsl]-LX2kpeyp80[/youtube:1qg51xsl]

                                    From the opening lines, this song became a fave. Honestly words cannot describe how much I relate to this one, feels as if the lyrics were written for me not only is this a pop gem musically, its video is so surreal and dreamy, and its lyrics are comforting, happy and hopeful. I wish I could translate all my emotions and thoughts that occur while I listen to this, but alas I can't. I relate to this because I feel I have changed a lot AND I actually do feel younger now than ever before... however, at the same time, this song is a good empowerment song for those who feel that nothing will ever change - it really will eventually! No need to mention that this song flopping is one of the worst musical moments of 2017.[/center:1qg51xsl]

                                      We are just like the waves that flow back and forth
                                      Sometimes I feel like I'm drowning and you're there to save me
                                      And I wanna thank you with all of my heart
                                      It's a brand new start
                                      A dream come true
                                      In Malibu


                                      [youtube:3mxkqo9h]8j9zMok6two[/youtube:3mxkqo9h]

                                      Another one by Miley, I know. This song was a love at first listen. The structure and production are simply perfect - sunny, breezy, country-tinged, yet still very pop. Something about the whole sound (probably influenced by the video) feels cathartic and gives me this feeling of freedom and happiness. It's a very summery song and I replayed it like crazy this summer. The bridge (basically the "aaaah" part ) is no less than gorgeous, her vocals are emotive and warm, and the lyrics are pretty, but not cheesy (well, for me at least). Anyway, glad this one was at least a hit, it totally deserved it. Miley made me a fan with this album and its two singles!



                                      Thanks to those few who kept on following me till the end! I planned to end this by January, but my new job started and a whole bunch of life changes with it, so this was dragged on and people lost interest. Oh well, it's here now and whoever's curious can find it!

                                      There will be no album countdown after all since I haven't listened to a lot of them and no one cares at this point.

                                        Thank-you for your countdown (I know you got a bit busy, which is perfectly ok, that happens <3). But I really enjoyed it and thank-you for letting me be apart of it!

                                            Haven't heard Younger Now before, I liked it! Might even enjoy this one more than Malibu, although I guess the same goes for this, good but she can do better.

                                                probably yeah, this new album converted me and all her live performances are amazing - absolutely love her voice and style now. I admit the change does feel extreme when compared to her previous two albums, but I think it was genuine because even her past live performances showed that she had this in her. she gets so much unfair hate nowadays, especially on ukmix

                                                not only the original stuff, but even her covers like No Freedom or Landslide are stunning

                                                still, Malibu and Younger Now are just perfection, I'd even tie them as #1 sometimes

                                                these are deffo superior to the Bangerz stuff. WCS and WB were bops, but give me no feels. Tho I still love to play WCS and not to mention Adore You, which is excellent

                                                • "Do It" is such a fun, catchy bop! I love it.

                                                  "Younger Now" is decent. Miley's latest project didn't really connect with me save for...

                                                  "Malibu" is gorgeous. It's so simple (the chorus is literally a short sentence), but equally as endearing. It's one of her best songs, and I wish it were an even bigger hit than it was. Great #1!

                                                  • YESSS... first Selena, then Miley... you're slowly coming to the dark side of former disney stars

                                                    Love to see that Top2. Miley really delivered last year and i'm shocked how she still flopped. Okay, "Malibu" was a hit for her, but it deserved even more, and "Younger Now" should have been another moderate or even big hit for her. No idea what went wrong there. Pop at its best for sure.
