First Listen: Fall Out Boy - “Centuries”

The hook definitely takes some warming up to — as it’s squarely in the “Arms Race” “My Songs” vein, but Patrick’s voice soars. The verses are especially punchy. And yet, the song seems to sample “Tom’s Diner” for no other reason than all modern pop songs have to include old pop songs so you think you know it already. And then there’s the lyrics, which will be perfect for the endless play this will get over NFL montages before games go to commercial.

First Listen: Lea Michele - “Cannonball”


After conquering broadway in Spring Awakening and dominating the charts with the cast of Glee, it was only a matter of time before Lea took a shot at pop stardom (in all honesty I’m surprised it took her this long to do it). ‘Cannonball’ serves as her first official single off her upcoming debut album Louder, and it’s kind of everything I expected from her. I’m not going to be blasting ‘Cannonball’ on repeat but that’s not to say it’s entirely bad. I’m sure her fans will flock to this one, but I don’t really see mainstream audiences latching onto it like they did with Katy Perry’s ‘Roar’ or Miley’s ‘We Can’t Stop’. If you like what you hear, you can purchase a copy of it right now on iTunes by clicking here.
