Hot 100 Roundup—10/15/11

B.o.B. featuring Lil Wayne—”Strange Clouds” #7 B.o.B. has been putting so much energy into the pop side of his career that I’d swear this is the first time I’ve heard him rap. That can’t be true, but that’s the way … Continue reading

Bubbling Under—5/28/11

Hot 100 Roundup—10/24/10

Taylor Swift—”Back To December” #6 The problem with most pop and country ballads isn’t that they’re slow and lugubrious (though they often are), but that they’re so damned predictable. You can see every turn in the melody and lyric (if … Continue reading
