I found this article on Buzzfeed listing the forty underrated pop songs of 2016. Naturally I found it intriguing – I’m always up for new music to listen to. I listened through most of them, and one of the songs they list is “Pretty Girl” by Maggie Lindemann (below). When I went to the YouTube video, one of the comments suggested changing the video speed to 1.25 (you can do that by clicking on the little cog icon). And, my god, what a good idea. The faster tempo suits the song better. Perhaps we know why it was “underrated” (more like unknown) in 2016.
Personally, I thought the best songs in the list were:
“Hurts So Good” – Astrid S
“Good As Hell” – Lizzo
“Mayday” – Cam
The music video for “Mayday” is also breathtaking.
Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have some songs to purchase from iTunes.
