These 4 Songs Are Your Absolute Must-Listens of the Week
By Lynsey Eidell
October 24, 2014
What better way to kick off Friday (and the weekend!) than with our favorite new songs of the week? If the S Club 7 playlist wasn’t enough, we’ve got new singles and new sounds to old favorites to add to your must-listen line-up, and I promiseâ€”none are to be skipped over. Happy listening!
Iggy Azalea “Beg For It”
With love Iggy by herself (“Work”) or paired up with another awesome lady artist (“Fancy”, “Black Widow”)â€”and her latest single, “Beg For It”, is an excellent example of the latter. She introduces us to Danish singer MO and delivers what is sure to be your going-out anthem of the weekend (and the fall!).
Bette Midler “Waterfalls”
This cover is certain to be very polarizing: You’re either going to be Team TLC or Team Bette when it comes to their renditions of “Waterfalls”. Midler’s cabaret-esque version is the first single from her girl-group tribute album, It’s the Girls!, due out November 4.
Sia “You’re Never Fully Dressed Without a Smile”
If Midler took a retro spin to a modern favorite, Sia’s taking the opposite approach with her remake of the Annie classic for the upcoming film version starring Quvenzhane Wallis and Jamie Foxx. Her upbeat pop version of the song is perfect for any day you need a little pick-me-up (like…today).
Let’s be real: The only scenes I can watch without closing my eyes (either partially or fully) during American Horror Story: Freak Show are the musical numbers. And Elsa Mars’ (Jessica Lange) cover of Lana Del Ray‘s “Gods and Monsters” was worth my full attentionâ€”Lange’s rendition was hauntingly perfect (even if it did summon the ghost of Edward Mordrake).
