Reviewing My 2021 Apple Music Replay; 40-31
Getting close to the top.
We’re working our way to the top and the countdown is getting intense.
40. King of Maine by Spose
I’d have to say I listened to King of Maine the most on my way to the gym or to start my workout when I was home over the spring and summer because of how fast paced the song is. It’s like the way I described Masterpiece, the lyrics punch you in the mouth.
39. Mirror Mirror by Spose and J Spin
Mirror Mirror was the first or second song I heard off We All Got Lost and I fell in love with the J Spin, Spose duo. Mirror Mirror has the head banging feel when the chorus picks up and makes you want to sing along.
Still through all my listens of the We All Got Lost, this is my first or second favorite song. It just doesn’t get old.
38. Drugs, Girls, Money & Liquor by Spose
“What's it all about?, Drugs, girls, money, liquor have got me, Minding my dimes and nickels”. This whole album has the feeling that your life may not be going the right way, but that doesn’t matter because you’re breathing.
Drugs, Girls, Money & Liquor, Fuck It, and John Madden all have a similar message and that’s what I like so much about this album and those particular songs.
37. Knocking On Wood by Spose
Spose keeps a similar theme with a lot of his songs and that is that as long as you’re alive with loved ones, you are winning and Knocking On Wood is an anthem for that message.
Maybe you don’t have a mansion, or a sick crib in the Hamptons, but as long as you have oxygen you’re living a good life. Spose performed this at the three shows I’ve seen him at and it just gets better and better every time I hear it.
36. The One by Watsky
I think a lot of dudes can relate to The One. Watsky raps about not being able to find love, or at least not being able to get laid, but he sees everyone else getting action. His lyrics and rhyme scheme are second to none.
“Everywhere I look it seems like everybody's pairing off, I'm staring at the pairs like they were tits on Lara Croft, Even all the dogs I see are clicking so terrific”. EVEN THE DOGS ARE GETTING LAID. WHAT THE FUCK.
35. GRAPEVINE by JR Specs and B.Aull
When I recently talked to JR Specs on the podcast, I told him that my only gripe about GRAPEVINE was that it didn’t come out earlier so his fans could have it for the summer season and he seemed to agree.
GRAPEVINE is a great summer song that fits the cruising around town with your friends vibe. His verse is great, but B.Aulls feature is FIRE. “When life gives you lemons you can make lemonade, but with the GRAPEVINE you can make wine for days”.
34. Good Luck With Your Life by Spose
“Yeah I wish you the best, but I WISH ME BETTER”. Good Luck With Your Life is about how you’re on the verge of making it and the people who are hating on you are starting to show their face.
You want to still be cordial, so you wish them luck their life. You know you wish yourself better, but they don’t have to know that.
33. These Days by J Spin
These Days is a nice song. It’s a comfortable listen. It makes you think about how the times you’re living in could be the good days and makes you look back on the past with fond memories.
32. Take Me Home by Mike Squires and Atlus
Take Me Home has a gut wrenching back story. Mike Squires house caught on fire a few years back and this song is about how all you want to do is “go home” when your life is in disarray. It’s sad, but it makes you really think about how what you have at home is nice and that going back is a great feeling.
“When it burns, Let the rain wash it away, When the smoke starts to clear, You can see another day, Remember all the good times, When the memories start to fade, Take me home”.
31. Same Guy by Jack Harlow and Adam Levine
Same Guy is a very different song stylistically than many of Jack Harlows other hits. It has a deep guitar beat in the back with backup vocals from Adam Levine and makes an R&B esque jam.
The song is Jack telling people how he can’t keep being the “same guy”. He blames his youth for mistakes he makes and wants to get away from that version of himself.
