Top 5 Music Singles

2014 Review: Top 5 Singles

By: Mary SY

5.  Maroon 5 – Animals

Animals is a great song that is very popular. The lead singer is “easy on the eyes”, which made the song even more popular. The video was very unusual, but it didn’t ruin the wonderful song.

4. Iggy Azalea – Fancy

Iggy Azalea is from Australia, but her song is definitely for everybody. The song is a mix between a rap and a pop song, including a swift beat. The song is also featuring Charli XCX, a British pop singer.

3. Taylor Swift – Blank Space

This song is on one hand soft, but on the other hand is very upbeat. As Taylor Swift herself explains, the video to the single represents how her haters think she acts like. The single itself became popular very fast, even so it was published all most by the end of the year.

2. Taylor Swift – Shake it off

Another song by Taylor Swift, is a single from her album 1989. The song talks about how people shouldn’t take other’s opinions too serious, and just “shake it off”. The video to the song included 5 different types of dances, and even Taylor herself “trying” to dance in the background.

1. Ariana Grande Problem ft Iggy Azalea

Ariana Grange is a quite new singer with a very powerful, high voice. Her most popular song is Problem, and it is a very catchy song with a nice tune. Problem is a song with a fast beat and perfect for a hip hop dance.

Review: Taylor Swift’s new album: 1989

By: Katelyn

Taylor Swift, the only female singer in music history to have two albums hit the 1 million first week sales figure, has a new album. The album, 1989, was named after her birth year, and is already a bestselling album. “Shake it Off,” the first song to be released from the album, was immediately popular to people of all ages. In 1989, Taylor sings in a whole new different way, changing from her original slow, teary, guitar style to quick, rock style. Some people still likes Taylor’s old style, but most approve of her new style.

1989 mostly has rock style songs, with only a few teary songs. The songs in her album includes:

    • Welcome to New York
    • Blank Space
    • Style
    • Out of the Woods
    • All You Had To Do Was Stay
    • Shake It Off
    • I Wish You Would
    • Bad Blood
    • Wildest Dreams
    • How You Get the Girl
    • This Love
    • I Know Places
    • Clean

This album is  Taylor Swift’s first ever pop album, which makes it very special. “Clean” is one of the slow songs in the album, and is a refreshing break from all the pop songs. Hope all of you will enjoy listening to Taylor’s new album!
