POP ETC // Top 5 Tracks Of The Year
POP ETC share with us their favourite tracks of the year. From Carly Rae Jepsen to Kanye West, these are all massive pop tunes.
Usher - Climax
Love how understated the hook is on this song. Arrangement is sparse and perfect. Beautiful vocal performance and sound. Just a wonderful song all around.
Carly Rae Jepsen - Call Me Maybe
This song is kind of all chorus, but it's a really, really, really great chorus.
Kanye West - Mercy
It's no secret how much we love Kanye. Ill track.
Justin Bieber - Die In Your Arms
Biebs doing his thing over jackson 5 is sort of golden. Not that he is MJ or anything, but I can't think of anyone else who could do this right now. I think he's really coming into his own as a singer, too. Aww biebs is all grown up!
The-Dream - Kill The Lights
I love how dream can simultaneously be super airy and sparkly, and also really heavy and dirge-y. I think sometimes the darker aspects of his tracks get overlooked. This song is one of the heavier things he's ever done. I dig how long it is, too.
