Trajectory 5 Voters: #20 10 Voters: #18 15 Voters: #10 20 Voters: #15 24 Voters: #14 Total Points: 204.25 On A Roll was written by Trent Reznor and produced by The Invisible Men. It is an "adaptation" of the 1989 Nine Inch Nails song "Head Like A Hole" from their debut studio album Pretty Hate Machine. It was recorded by Miley for the Black Mirror episode "Rachel, Jack and Ashley Too", where she plays the character of Ashley O and was released as a single on June 14, 2019. It did not fare well on the charts, only reaching #16 on the Billboard Bubbling Under in the U.S., as well as peaking at #77 on the Canadian Hot 100, #65 on the U.K. Singles Chart, and #86 in Australia, while gnerally charting in the 20s-40s range in smaller markets. It did manage a peak of #18 on the New Zealand Hot Singles Chart though, and was ranked #28 on the 100 Best Songs of 2019 list by Billboard. Also, I know I said I would go over the episode like I did with the Hannah songs in part 1, but I forgot to watch it so that will have to be in a separate post dddd. What a fun song, am I right? It's such a bop. i honestly don't really have a lot to say about this though. It's just a really well-produced big bop of a pop song, of the sort Miley has never really done before. The closest she came to this kind of sound was on Can't Be Tamed, specifically Who Owns My Heart feeling like her big "dance pop" moment, but this is a little more industrial in a couple of the synths and electronics. I have to say, I love how the lyrics are partly about sex and partly about achieveing what you want and fulfilling your goals. It doesn't make a lot of sense on papaer, but the songs melodies and production, along with Miley's top-notch, flirty as hell, celebratory vocals, sell the whole thing. Seriously, it always hyped me up when I listen to it and makes me feel like I can do anything I want, whether that's get some good sex or fulfill my dreams nn. And yes, technically the lyric is "Hey yeah, woah-oh!" but it very much sounds like "Hey I'm a hoe/hole!" so that is what I sing dddd. Honestly, such a great song, but I'm really surprised it made it this far over so many other songs, as much as I love it dddd. Y'all didn't have much to say about a song that made it this far ddd. I feel like that's some sort of sign. Anyway, sounds like @boombazookajoe (6.5) might be a fan of the show: This is lowkey giving me Ally from A Star Is Born Album track. Miley was great in this episode even though it's not my favorite Black Mirror ever. It's cute that this was a little hit though. I understand the comparison, and I really need to watch the rest of the show. @Yeziirl (10) needs to as well: Hoe anthem! She snapped! I need to watch that black mirror episode asap. It really is an anthem honestly, both hoe and in general. And the episode's great, and Miley was really really good in it. And @M24 (6.5) is going to be relieved to see this go: I hope this one doesn't go that far.. It's a good song, just not worth all the attention it got. The instrumental in the chorus is what lets down the song for me. The verses and post-chorus are at least worth an 8 though. Also, it felt weird watching Miley do a "pure pop" MV with choreo and stuff... I know it was probably part of the episode (haven't watched it) but I hate that I'm living for it even though I know Miley would never do something of the sort again. Again, it's a great episode, you should definitely watch it, and I love the production in the chorus! It pops off. Also, I wouldn't be so sure about that, I wouldn't be surprised if she decided she wanted to do a poppier type project thing again.
