Tove Lo’s “Habits (Stay High)” whipped the buttocks of the rest of the competition, including second-place “Team” and third-place “Turn Down for What.” The mysterious “woo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo” combined with lines like “binge on all my Twinkies/throw up in the tub and I go to sleep” really clinched the vote for me.
The truly dreadful “Say Something” is dead-ass last place in the world-famous Ponch8 Music Rating System.
I’ve got to go with Sia’s Chandelier as it’s an excellent song but the fact that I could as well have voted for Let it Go in spite of having my daughters sing it 24/7 for 6 months is telling. Only a very good tune can stand that much repetition and still sound fresh.
I went with “Let It Go”, and I’ve never even seen the movie it comes from. The first time I heard it on the radio, the intro and first verse reminded me of “Winter” by Tori Amos, and in fact I thought it was just a Tori song I’d never heard before - and then it went off in an entirely different direction and hooked me.
“Bailando” because that song got played everywhere on the radio here and every time I went out dancing last year (and up until now). Catchy song, and I love it, despite disliking most of Enrique’s other songs.
