With April out and through, I thought about starting a monthly review of the Top 5 songs on the billboard the last week of the month. Let’s begin…
1. When I See You Again by Wiz Khalifa
The number one song on the billboard was “When I See You Again,” which is a part of the Furious 7 soundtrack. The song is truly, the kind of song that we’ve needed in pop. The vocals, the lyrics, and the melody are perfect together, and even the rap part isn’t that bad. The song is a powerful piece of music (seldom seen these days) and has a well-deserved spot on the Billboards.
2.Uptown Funk! by Mark Ronson
The old-fashion funk takes place in Mark Ronson’s, “Uptown Funk!” From the first time I heard this song, I liked it a lot. It’s the kind of upbeat song that would make you want to get up and dance, when listening to it. I love the upbeat rhythm, and especially love the opening low-pitch vocals. Of course, not as powerful as, “When I See You Again,” but, wow. Two good songs in a row. Maybe pop listeners have better taste than I thought.
3. Trap Queen by Fetty Wap
Never mind. “Trap Queen,” is a belligerent piece of musical trash. Fetty Wap obviously needs help with learning that there are more than four keys that you can sing. Throughout the three-minute song, the second felt like hours. I was trapped in an atrocity called, “Trap Queen,” for three-minutes where they just repeat the same tired chorus over and over. If there’s no purpose in repeating something, DON’T REPEAT IT.
4. Earned it by The Weekend
Yet another song from a soundtrack. This one from Fifty Shades of Grey. It’s called, “Earned It,” by The Weekend, and it’s a decent song. I liked some parts of it. For example, I liked the semi-orchestral sounding accompaniment. But some parts, such as the bland melody, and the vocals, I didn’t enjoy so much.
5. Sugar by The Maroon 5’s
Last, but not least, we have the Maroon 5’s, “Sugar.” The song is very repetitive, and the melody falls a bit flat, but I still like some of the vocals in the song. A fun song to dance to, perhaps. Don’t have much to say about this one.
