I don’t know if Don’t Look Down’s just happened to catch me in a good mood, but I like it. Mind you, that’s nothing compared to the surprise I got from Want To Want Me. Not only does Jason Derulo not namecheck himself – he must’ve really had to force himself not to do that – but this is very likely the best thing he’s done to date. It spent four weeks at the top, and do you know what, I have absolutely no complaints about that.

Ah yes, this restores balance to the universe. Jason Derulo forgets to namecheck himself, so Natalie La Rose does it instead. Come to think of it, Somebody’s not bad either… what the hell’s going on this month?

If U2 had been a pop band in the eighties instead of being U2, they’d probably have sounded a bit like Walk The Moon. I’m not entirely sure if that’s a compliment or not, but the song itself is all right in small doses… I reckon hearing it roughly once or twice should be ample for me.

Fetty Wap has lots of money, his other half is a pole dancer, he talks about Lamborghinis… SIGH. God, this stuff is SO BLOODY PREDICTABLE. Next… oh good, it’s Chris Brown. The tune’s good, and the lyrics (at least by the breathtakingly low standards set by Mr. Brown’s usual output) are actually quite respectable. This definitely could’ve been worse.
