New Music Friday: it’s a rollover week for the Dua Lipa remix, with Louis Tomlinson at the bottom and various songs in between
Song of the last week:
Dua Lipa — ‘New Rules’ (Initial Talk mix)
There are plenty of good songs out this week, but there’s nothing that feels worthy of Song Of The Week, so we’re activating an unprecedented SONG OF THE WEEK ROLLOVER.
Wrong of the week:
Louis Tomlinson — ‘Miss You’
It’s quite an achievement for ‘Miss You’ to be one of the year’s worst singles — after all, 2017 is a year that’s already thrown up three other Louis Tomlinson releases. But here we are with a written-to-brief, no-redeeming-features meditation on life as Louis Tomlinson delivered in the style of a Son Of Dork CD single bonus track.
The lyrics reference drugs, drinking, going out and fake smiles because hey, guess what, sometimes being a famous person isn’t everything it’s cracked up to be! It’s sometimes quite bleak!! Sometimes when you are in one place and other people are not in that place you miss them!!! Nobody has ever mentioned this before!!!! Except actually yes…
