I think pop music is a fascinating genre because unlike all the other genres of music it is a mix of them plus constantly evolving. It’s always got a catchy beat, lyrics that grip, and a message based on current issues of the time.
For me, pop music has reminded of certain times with certain people. Or the decade of my birth because 90s pop was pretty dang fun.
Pop music has progressively gotten a lot darker and more deeper, in a genuine reflection of our society and world as a whole.
Yet, it is filled with so many songs that carry you through when nothing else seems to.
Here is a playlist for anyone looking to add something fresh and inviting.
Haunted House:Voice manipulation and Christina’s big band musicality create this dark jazz track about how one’s heart is haunted with past lovers, broken pieces, and twisted walk ways.
Nice To Meet Ya: Uptempo pop track with vintage vibes about seeing someone at a club or bar, and feeling a connection but not getting their name.
Adore You: 3rd single from Styles’ Fine Line, features Harry speaking about his love and passion for a significant other, and the extent to which he would do things.
I’m Fakin’: An electropop track about two people who have very large energies and disagree often. It’s only an act. The track features a clock ticking in the background on the breakdown.
You Can’t Stop The Girl: A female empowerment track that is from Disney’s second Maleficient movie.
Up All Night: An uptempo pop track about troubling thoughts that keep you up all night, struggling with anxiety.
Lost My Mind: The windchimes in the musicality are a perfect touch to a track about feeling winded because someone took your breath away, they left you, and you can’t get them off your mind. It is a deep exploration of the human heart, and even after you leave someone’s presence they stay with you and you feel like you’ve lost your mind in loving them.
Keep On: A soft song that shares an encouraging message for anyone who suffers with any and all symptoms of anxiety, depression, or other mental illnesses.
Fall On Me: A cover of Andrea Bocelli’s 2018 song of the same name. The “Say Something” duo is back to create a multilayered piece of music about falling in love or falling on anyone when you can’t carry your burdens alone.
Fired Up by Grace Carter: A fun pop track about being in love and it fuels your overall passion for life.
This Is On You: An almight emo girl bop about not feeling responsible for someone else’s happiness.
Poser: A song about struggling in self-worth and trying not to mess up what you share with someone
Anyone: An emotionally charged piano ballad about needing help as she wants someone to be there through the tough times with her. It was written and recorded four days before her near-fatal overdose in July 2018.
