Hot 100 Roundup—11/17/12

The Band Perry—“Better Dig Two” #53 In which the group who jump-started their career with “If I Die Young” goes full bore into country gothic. The woman in “Better Dig Two” not only vows to follow her husband in death, … Continue reading

New this week—7/18/10

The Band Perry—”If I Die Young” #92 For a country death song, surprisingly unsentimental. It approaches death from a naive teenager’s point of view, the perspective of someone who doesn’t understand what death really means, rejecting sentiment and adding a … Continue reading
