Music You Should Know: Your Old Favorites Are Back!

They're back and better than ever!

 

OneRepublic - Kids

With a new album coming out next month, OneRepublic is back with a song that's sure to get us up and dancing.   Frontman Ryan Tedder says he's been getting a LOT of praise from his fellow artists over this one, and we can see why.  The band took a major risk, musically and lyrically-wise, with this song and it paid off BIG TIME.

When speaking to officialcharts.com, he said that the song “I’ve actually been getting texts from other artists about it saying they like it, which has been rather astonishing. Sonically it’s a bit of jog to the left from songs like Counting Stars and Love Runs Out, but that’s the point. If you’re not going to try and switch lanes and switch it up, then what’s the point? I don’t want to jinx it, but I have a good feeling about this one."

 

 

Lady Gaga - Perfect Illusion

Wev'e been waiting FOREVER for this song.  Three years, to be exact.  With Gaga going on tour with Tony Bennet and working on some killer side-projects, now she's focused on her own career, which has blown up even more with her performances at the Oscars and at the Super Bowl.

We know Gaga recently split from her fiance, Taylor Kinney, but you can be assured "Perfect Illusion" is not about him in the slightest. 

She told SiriusXM's Radio Andy, "This song is not a hit out against Taylor. He’s my best friend. This song is just about, I’m sure, not only feelings I’ve had but feelings he’s had, that my friends have had, that my sister has in her relationship. It’s a record about all of us, and I would never use my song or want to use the public to hurt anyone that I love so much. ... We’re just two people figuring it out.”
