Hide & Seek

It’s been a while since I posted a playlist, and I’m not entirely sure anyone has actually listened to any of them besides myself, but I thought it be fun to post what kind of stuff I’ve been listening to lately.  When I started tweeting out #PhillipsSongOfTheDay with a song title (it’s been a while, forgive me), I started keeping keeping a list of those songs (which you can peruse here).  It’s been interesting to see how my taste in music/listening patterns have changed over time; it seemed to reflect what I was going through in life.  Recently, I’ve been getting into alternative and some indie rock music (which is something I never thought I’d get into).  I mean, the playlist below doesn’t really portray that because there are still some big pop numbers in there, but I think it does show my slow transition into the alternative taste.

Don’t Tell ‘Em

Okay, I realize I’m a bit behind the times, but I just finally listened to “Don’t Tell ‘Em” by Jeremih featuring YG.  And I kind of liked it.

I remember over the summer hearing snippets of this song on the radio, and skipping past the channel.  I have no idea why I never gave it chance.  But, in my defense, I thought it was a completely different song than it actually was.  The song has a great beat/rhythm to it; the synths that start the song  really make the song.  I also think the way he sings/raps “don’t tell ’em” in the chorus is great, and sticks in your head.

I also saw this clip of Lorde covering “Don’t Tell ‘Em,” and while she did a good job, I thought it was kind of unexpected:
