“Daylight” by Maroon 5 is quickly gaining popularity, proving Maroon 5 is still able to crank out hits. It is in synch with the rest of the group’s hit album, Overexposed. Much like most of Maroon 5’s songs, its impressive lyrical structure offers many levels of listening. The instrumental funk guitar and electro-pop mix was also pretty top notch.
From February 1, 1964 to March 30: “I Wanna Hold Your Hand” by “The Beatles” was released on February 1, 1964 and was an instant hit. The song was not supposed to be played in America, and in an interview for The Beatles Anthology, George Martin, producer of “The Beatles”, said “Capital (Records) was forced to release “I Wanna Hold Your Hand,” though it was not specifically designed for the American market.”
In any case, it held its spot on the charts until March 30 of that year and has become one of the most popular songs by The Beatles.

Let me start by saying that that psychedelic does not begin to describe this band. They have a sound that is strange in melody and in lyrics. Their music has a very swirling tone and synthesized riffs. “MGMT” or “The Management” consists of Andrew VanWyngarden and Ben Goldwasser. Both met during their freshmen year at Wesleyan University and “started experimenting”. They a most noted for their strange music videos that have a very “trippy” feel. One of my favorite songs is “Electric Feel” because of the booming bass and the clever lyrics.
Senior Claire Faith: “Some Nights” by Fun. and “Too Close” by Alex Clare
“They’re really good songs the first few times you hear them but then they’re played so much they just get old.”
Sophomore Kenzie Ross: “Scream & Shout” by Britney Spears & will.i.am
“It’s catchy, but they play it too often. Now it’s just annoying.”
As for me, I have had enough of “Thrift shop” by Macklemore & Ryan Lewis Featuring Wanz the Heist. It is really nothing inventive in anyway, but most can enjoy it for its sense of humor. The obnoxious saxophone solo is grading to the ears, and I would be alright if I never heard the song again.
