Seriously...

Of the new stuff out there, what's worth listening to?

Lately, I've found myself listening to the same stuff I've been listening to since middle school and it's getting kinda boring. I don't really have the time or patience to wade through the garbage to find the good stuff, if said good stuff actually exists.

So, what's new?



ETA: By "new," I mean stuff released this year or in the past 2-3 years. All genres/styles inclusive.

Something "new" from last year. Energic vibe with a great bass sound too...

I love commercial pop music






Starstruck
You laugh at us we’re different
And we laugh ‘cause you’re all the same
By the look on your face baby
We’ve been enjoying ourselves again

I know that you cry
I know why you try so hard

Ready steady go, everybody famous
Everyone you know, why’d it take you ages
I don’t have to listen read love like you
I’ve got no problem with the physical minimal real life
Living in hysterica for everybody’s betterment
Isn’t it a miracle, everybody’s starstruck

I guess the odds are very good
But the goods are very odd
And even though I talk with the Devil
I only made the deal with God

I am alarmist
Knock one off the wrist, so hard
Ready steady go, everybody famous
Everyone you know, why’d it take you ages

I don’t have to listen read love like you
I’ve got no problem with the physical minimal real life
Living in hysterica for everybody’s betterment
Isn’t it a miracle, everybody’s starstruck

You want to stop, but you can’t, can you?
I was lovely on the way up, on the way up

Ready steady go, everybody famous
Everyone you know, why’d it take you ages

I don’t have to listen read love like you
I’ve got no problem with the physical minimal real life
Living in hysterica for everybody’s betterment
Isn’t it a miracle, everybody’s starstruck

Ready steady go

I don’t have to listen read love like you
I’ve got no problem with the physical minimal real life
Living in hysterica for everybody’s betterment
Isn’t it a miracle, everybody’s starstruck

Ready steady go
