Just short and sweet, I find it a fine line between artistic integrity, videos that were on repeat at friends’ (Donovan‘s) house, and things that just made me happy despite popular concensus when considering what makes my list. But covering and considering all those bases, here we go. Agree or disagree, here were some great visuals to great songs this year that made it 2012 for me, and maybe you, but mostly me.
Love it or hate it, over a billion hits on YouTube can’t be wrong. We may never want to hear it again, but it will definitely, always remind me of 2012. Two words: Invisible. Horse.
Did you all catch P!nk’s performance at the VMA’s last night? It definitely wasn’t as memorable as her previous performances but it was good to see her perform her current single, Blow Me (One Last Kiss) live for the first time. However, I was really hoping to see her perform a snippet of her new song which just debuted on the radio yesterday afternoon. It’s called Try and honestly, I absolutely LOVE it.
Written and produced by Greg Kurstin and Busbee, P!nk puts her faith back in a powerful pop ballad which showcases her powerhouse vocals perfectly. She sings in the chorus, “where there is a spark, there is gonna be a flame. Where is there is a flame, someone’s gonna get burned. But just because it burns doesn’t mean you’re gonna die. You gotta get up and try.” While her lead-off single from her September 18th release of The Truth About Love has grown on me, I prefer the sound of her new single. Give it a listen below and share your thoughts in the comments.
