  3. Having myself some drinks a little Kylie before the new single release, and this understated gem always stood out to me. I bop.

  7. Quite possibly the most underrated "perfect" song of the year. The song just builds up and up, they did the same with "It All Feels The Same" back then so this is a perfect follow up for that. Where as that song was cyncial, this is just lovely.

  8. Remember those 15 minutes in 2002 when Ashanti was Beyoncé?

  9. I will despair forever that this wasn't a single.
  10. Speaking of songs that weren't singles that should have been...

    Even being a song light on Lisa... it's probably Blackpink's second or third best song.

  16. This line from Avril Lavigne's My Happy Ending always makes me think this guy was hiding a giant pile of shit from everyone and only she knew about it:

    But they don't know me
    Do they even know you?
    All the things you hide from me
    All the shit that you do

  17. I love that “Lonely Town” is basically this scene, with all the implied danger that entails.
