We take you on a guided tour of the best, the good, and the quite good's of the week
It is well and truly 2019 and all of the January bangers are making their way onto our playlists. And, if 2019 continues this way, it’s going to be one heck of a playlist by the end of the year…
Featured Song: Ariana Grande – 7 Rings
Ariana’s follow-up to 'Thank u, next' - Imagine’ – didn’t quite blow up in the way everyone thought it would; but that’s fine because she has a new single which is going to be MASSIVE. You know how we know it’s going to be massive? Because it samples The Sound of Music! It’s, surprisingly, a rarely sampled track… last sampled in 2012 by Cyhi Da Prynce and before then by Alice Cooper in 1971.
Anyway, the track sees Ariana doing that rap-singing she’s been up to lately, talking about how “I see it, I like it, I want it, I…

A podcast breaking down the music of pop hits.
Pop music surrounds us, but how often do we really listen to what we’re hearing? Switched on Pop is the podcast that pulls back the curtain on pop music. Each episode, join musicologist Nate Sloan and songwriter Charlie Harding as they reveal the secret formulas that make pop songs so infectious. By figuring out how pop hits work their magic, you’ll fall in love with songs you didn’t even know you liked.
Four years into Switched On Pop, Charlie and Nate finally reveal what was behind the entire series. We may have not been totally honest with you from the beginning.
Back in 2014 we were more pop skeptics than fanatics. The genre was, to some degree, the sugar that made the musical analysis medicine go down. And then something happened. Just as people started to listen to the show, we too began to open our ears. Now,…

Lindsay Ell has had a busy year. In the words of James Gilmore - she's one of the most hard-working artists out there, and he’s not wrong; Lindsay has played 235 shows this year and she’s not slowing down anytime soon.
