Well @Maki you called one of them right! If Loving You Was Easy (From: Infinite Things) Average: 7.16 High Scorers: 9 x 1 (@Sprockrooster) Low Scorers: 6 x 2 (@tylerc904, @soratami) 6.5 x 2 (@Phonetics Girl, @Markus1981) ‘If Loving You Was Easy’ was written by Paloma and the fantastic Josef Salvat (who opened for Paloma on her most recent tour). The track is produced by Ed Harcourt and TommyD. Harcourt is a long time collaborator with Paloma, whilst TommyD has worked with many PJ faves such as Kylie, Sophie Ellis-Bextor and Adele. My Thoughts: (7.6) Listening back to this one, I actually really like the lyrics here. I can definitely hear Josef’s writing here. May have underscored this a bit. Commentary: @Maki (8.5) The verses and pre-choruses are quite gloomy and therefore let the chorus bring the drama. Yeah, it may be a tad generic, but I really dig this. Possibly the biggest grower from this album, I'm actually surprised I like it as much. Sorry @Phonetics Girl! You're gonna hate this rate dd Lost and Lonely (From: The Architect) Average: 7.21 High Scorers: 10 x 1 (@Phonetics Girl) Low Scorers: 5.5 x 2 (@Maki, @Markus1981) ‘Lost and Lonely’ was written by Paloma along with Eg White who also produced the song along with Jesse Shatkin. Eg White will be well known to most of us on PJ as the man behind many great pop songs such as Diana Vicker’s ‘Once’, Adele’s ‘Chasing Pavements’ and Will Young’s ‘Leave Right Now’. Interestingly, this is the only song he was involved with on ‘The Architect’. In a clip, Paloma said the song was based on a documentary she watched about a lady who was a pillar of the community but yet when she died she wasn’t discovered in her home until 3 years later. Depressing inspiration but it works. My Thoughts: (8) I really like this one, it’s quite empowering and uplifting. Commentary: @Maki (5.5) This sounds like a "Fall to Grace" outtake, and that's not a good thing. Very clumsy and forgettable overall, the only thing that slightly helps are those cute backing vocals popping in every now and then. Next time: the same 2 albums lose a song each, but which?
