We’ve been on a real music kick during July 2017. Lots of fun songs on the radio.
Julia Michaels – Issues
Thanks to JuliaMichaelsVEVO for hosting this video.
Miley Cyrus – Malibu
Thanks to MileyCyrusVEVO hosting this video. Did not recognize this as a Miley Cryus song, she really is a great singer when she has something to say.
Kesha – Praying
Thanks to keshaVEVO for hosting this video! Kesha is now free of “Dr.” Luke and has also dropped the silly $ from her name. This is such a powerful song, what a way to tell the world that you are back! #FreeKesha #ISupportKesha #StopRapingKesha #DontGetRapedAtWork
Selena Gomez – Bad Lair
Thanks to SelenaGomezVEVO for hosting this video. This was one of those songs that I really liked, only heard like the middle portion of the song and could never hear who sings it. Of course, it would be Selena Gomez. I really like the way she’s dressed in this video, really down to Earth. I guess that she’s 24 (I had to look it up) but she still looks like a 16 year old so I appreciate that she isn’t dressed as sultry as some of her other videos. It is a nice simple song and she dresses for that part. I may also be just an old fuddy duddy too, of course, she can dress however she pleases. I just can’t or shouldn’t watch those videos.
Alessia Cara – Scars To Your Beautiful
Thanks to AlessiaCaraVEVO for hosting this video.
I may just be in a certain mode this month but I’ve really been enjoying these songs on the radio. I may be also listening to Living Between Wednesdays, and those early episodes, I can’t hear them on my phone when it is in my van cup holder – unlike my other podcasts that I can hear just fine. So I’ve been listening to the radio a lot more than I usually do.
Thanks to Mix 102.3 here in Helena for their excellent policy for stating the artist and song title after each and every song. The other stations don’t do this, so I don’t listen to those stations when I’m hunting for information on songs. As I can’t seem to memorize an important lyric enough to go to work or home and Google that particular lyric.
Then I discovered, thanks to YouTube, that someone is nice enough to create a Top 40 playlist and update it weekly (as far as I can tell) so that’s been super helpful. I’ve been missing my days of watching VH1’s Top 20 Countdown and getting to see music videos and staying current.
