The Critics Corner: Singles Edition

hayley_80 By Hayley Holmes

Lifehouse, One Republic, Cassie, and Carly Rae Jepsen all recently released singles.  While they are all very different artists, listeners will find that there is something for everyone. I got to review each of their singles and show you just what that “something for everyone” is.


51d5L7cNBfL._SL500_AA280_ Lifehouse ft. Natasha Bedingfield | Between The Raindrops (Geffen)

Mark my words, “Between The Raindrops” by Lifehouse Ft. Natasha Bedingfield is going to be a hit. This song paints a picture of a rainstorm and a couple walking hand in hand through it. It lets listeners not only imagine this literal rainstorm but a metaphorical one where the rainstorm in the song symbolizes a hard time between a couple but as the song explains “I’ll walk between the raindrops with you.” Natasha Bedingfield’s voice was the perfect touch to this song as well. It paints an even clearer picture of a couple singing about their loyalty to one another. This song is definitely one that I will be listening to A LOT. We haven’t heard much from Lifehouse recently, and this was definitely a tremendous step in the right direction for this band.

— 4.7/5

Next, “Feel Again” by One Republic is another one that listeners will thoroughly enjoy.  This song has the typical One Republic sound that is so popular with the upbeat tempo and use of the upbeat drum riffs that give the effect of an audience clapping along. This is one of those songs that I envision being played on a road trip, driving into a sunset with all the windows rolled down.  Yes, it’s one of THOSE songs and we love it! Once again, this song is definitely one I will continue listening to for a long time!

— 4.3/5
