STOP! LOOK! PLAYLIST! 21st August 2016


What was the most played song by Steve at Talk About Pop Music this week?

My most played song this week was “Still Into You” by Paramore.

I had heard of Paramore before but never actually listened to them as such until this song came on the radio and I had to Shazam it to find it who it was. I listened to it pretty much non stop for the rest of the week.

I also knew the lead singer, Hayley Williams, better than I thought because as well as appearing on “Bury It” by Chvrches, she was also the guest vocalist on “Airplanes” by B.O.B. and “Stay The Night” by Zedd. I’ve heard these songs a lot without actually realising it was her. Now, I have a new band’s back catalogue to go through which is always awesome!

I’m also not ashamed to admit I have been hanging out with Dolly Parton a lot this week – her latest song “Pure and Simple” is just so easy on the ear

Of course I was listening to Phebe Starr quite a lot since she just did an interview with Talk About Pop Music. If you’ve not heard any of her songs before then I urge you to listen.

Thanks to the amazing Spotify Discover Weekly Playlist I was introduced to Nadja Evelina this week. It’s so clever and it’s great that it recognises that I currently listen to a lot of Scandipop!

I added Tigertown to the Talk About Pop Music Discovered 2016 Playlist earlier in the year and I listened to them again this week after finding out from Phebe that they are good buddies.

Here is the Talk About Pop Music Top 10 most played songs from the last 7 days.

I’d like to say a big thank you to – without their service over the past ten years none of these stats would be possible each week!
