I know my blog is pretty much a shrine to all thing non pop related. But still, I thought it would be easier than this to pick out a few tunes which aren’t all that bad. But no, this experiment is proving to be much tougher than I ever anticipated. Perhaps this column will have to become a monthly thing. But for now I guess I’ll just play it by ear.
So anyway, for this edition of pop songs I don’t hate I have decided to play it safe, well sort of safe, with the newest musical offering from Calvin Harris and Florence Welch. The song is called Sweet Nothing and features a combination of both the infectious dance tunes and loud belting vocals which we have come to associate with the pair respectfully.
Once again I chose this song due to overexposure to radio-waves (basically it has been played constantly on the radio and thus has taken up temporary residence in my head). Does this make it a good song? No it doesn’t, but it is not as irritating as its various other daytime radio counterparts.
So I will leave you with that, if you do not know the song then have a look at the music video below. And as always be sure to let me know what you think of this weeks selection.
And now for the alternative choice. It’s also a tough one. I want to pick something that’s similar to the above but not necessarily a pop song. Any ideas? Send in your choice on the back of a post card to the following address:
