New Good Song: "Poor Me," Shania Twain 7.30.17

New Good Song: "Cut To The Feeling," Carly Rae Jepsen 7.30.17

New Good Song: "Nobody Likes You," Elsa 7.30.17

Here's a new good song: "Nobody Likes You" by Elsa. Good track with an unfortunately choice of artist moniker given the popularity of Frozen. Enjoy!

New Good Song: "Sit Next To Me," Foster the People 7.30.17

Here's a new good song: "Sit Next To Me" by Foster the People. They brought us "Pumped Up Kicks" six years ago, and Mark Foster's collaboration with Kimbra and A-Trak resulted in one of the best songs of 2012, "Warrior." This is a more mainstream diversion but fantastic. This should be a huge hit but it won't be because people are busy listening to Kendrick Lamar and Lil Uzi Vert and Future and other artists who make interchangeable, tragically terrible music. Enjoy!

New Good Song: "Bad Liar," Selena Gomez 7.30.17

New Good Song: "Looking For Love," The Chain Gang of 1974 7.30.17

Here's a new good song: "Looking For Love" by The Chain Gang of 1974. They/he had the No. 1 best song of last year, "I Still Wonder," followed by a good song called "Slow." A high bar to meet, but "Looking For Love" is good. Enjoy!

New Good Song: "Kaleidoscopes," Transviolet f/ Reo Cragun 7.30.17

Here's a new good song: "Kaleidoscopes" by Transviolet f/ Reo Cragun. The lead singer has a little too much Indie Girl voice happening but it's an otherwise superior effort. Enjoy!

New Good Song: "1-800-273-8255," Logic f/ Alessia Cara & Khalid 7.30.17

Here's a new good song: "1-800-273-8255" by Logic f/ Alessia Cara & Khalid. I'd say, "Enjoy!" as usual, but it's about suicide. So ... listen?

New Good Song: "Burn Like The Sun," Modern Whale 7.30.17

Here's a new good song: "Burn Like The Sun" by Modern Whale. It's a grower, a track I've been listening to for several weeks but like now more than ever. Enjoy!

New Good Song: "Need You," Allie X f/ Valley Girls 7.30.17

Here's a new good song: "Need You" by Allie X f/ Valley Girls. X was responsible for one of the best songs of 2016, "Never Enough." Not sure why she's not more popular, she's got some great music. Enjoy!

New Good Song: "Stay," Zedd f/ Alessia Cara 6.4.17

Here's a new good song: "Stay" by Zedd f/ Alessia Cara. I hadn't yet cared for Cara's output and am still on the fence about whether I like her singing style, but this collaboration works well; I especially appreciate that Zedd keeps pushing his sound forward so that the audience gets something unexpected each time. Enjoy!

New Good Song: "Ruin," So Below 6.4.17

Here's a new good song: "Ruin" by So Below. It's dark, emotional, look-over-your-shoulder Pop. Enjoy!
