At first listen you may think something is wrong with your mp3 player. The actual dance track doesnâ€™t come into play until well into the first minute. However the remainder of â€œWhat You Needâ€ isnâ€™t better than the intro. It just sounds like more noise companioned with the title being constantly repeated with a heavy dose of pedestrian lyrics thrown into the mix. At best it may give you a headache, at worst youâ€™ll wonder where all the music has gone.
â€œWhole New Wayâ€ â€“ Scissor Sisters
Did The Eagles tape an illegal pharmaceuticals moment â€“ no itâ€™s Scissor Sistersâ€™ â€œWhole New Way.â€ The worst parts of this song are the lyrics. If they arenâ€™t overtly offensive in a not-so-cool-way, then theyâ€™re downright insipid. Donâ€™t waste your time.
â€œMy Timeâ€ â€“ Minus the Bear
Minus the Bearâ€™s â€œMy Timeâ€ is a song that lacks replay value. The rhythmic arrangement and lyrics arenâ€™t memorable making the song forgettable right after itâ€™s over.
â€œHeirloomâ€ â€“ Sufjan Stevens
â€œHeirloomâ€ has a beautiful melody, unfortunately the lyrics get in the way of a great listening experience. There are some songs that donâ€™t need words and this is one of them. If you can find an instrumental version of this track then go for it.
â€œWoke to Seeâ€ â€“ Pieter Noonan
â€œWoke to Seeâ€ has a haunting melody that will suck you in. Still the lamenting lyrics are unnecessary as they donâ€™t add to the rich emotions that the music by itself exudes. Still it is listenable.
â€œWith or Without Youâ€ â€“ Sarah Darling
Remakes of classic songs done by artists who are still rocking are tricky at best to pull off. But, Sarah Darlingâ€™s rendition of U2â€™s â€œWith or Without Youâ€ is an enchanting version with just the right touch of a haunting quality that made the first version a huge hit. Definitely give this free download a try.
â€œI Donâ€™t Believe Youâ€ â€“ The Thermals
Just because you can put two sentences together doesnâ€™t make you a writer. While guitar and drums work well here on this track it is the lyrics that make this song unlistenable. The title is constantly repeated making the song as annoying as your little brother poking you in the arm on a long road trip. Skip it.
