A couple of guilty pleasure radio tracks have gotten stuck in my head as of late. First up, Metro Station’s “Seventeen Forever.” The verses are are not overly memorable, but that’s OK, since there isn’t many of them – it’s the many choruses where the song earns its money, erupting into shimmering, bouncy goodness.
And second, I’m really digging Katy Perry’s new single, “Hot N’ Cold.” The track sounds like an up-tempo Pink knock-off, but I mean that as a compliment – it’s high-energy, gritty vocals, and an oh-so-hooky chorus that gets under your skin, in a good way.
