Primera’s Heavy Rotation : January 25th, 2011

Posted in Music by mibnufajar on 25 January, 2011

1. Taio Cruz feat. Travie McCoy – Higher


If you like “Break Your Heart”, you’ll probably going to love this one. Coming from Taio Cruz compilation album, “The Rokstarr Collection”. Travie McCoy rap is a little annoying but overall, the song is destined to be another top chart for Mr. Cruz. Btw, there’s another version featuring Kylie Minogue here

2. Ke$ha – Blow


A definite dance club anthem with it’s heavy retro-progressive beat. It seriously doesn’t need to get remixed anymore.

3. Avril Lavigne – What the Hell



First single from Avril upcoming fourth studio album, “Goodbye Lullaby”, this one is a soul-less pop-rock-punk song (you know, typical Avril). Avril said that the album is going to be a very personal album, and this one is the least personal. I hope it’s true, cos this one is a very radio friendly track and doesn’t seem to have an emotion at all (but very enjoyable)

4. Cody Simpson – iYiY


If only the song is awful, I would call Cody Simpson a Justin Bieber’s copycat. But iYiY is a very addictive R n’ B track you should check. Coming from Australia, he’s as young and singing the same genre as Justin Bieber.

5. Unique feat. Charice – Wherever You Are


Charice’s voice simply amaze me. Her voice soars and this one song is no exceptions. If you’re hoping for a power ballad like “Note to God”, this is not what you’re looking for. This one is a catchy R n’ B duet track with Charice as a featured artist but she still manage to get spotlight.

6. Carrie Underwood – There’s a Place for Us


Thumbs up for The Chronicles of Narnia music director. They know how to pick a good soundtrack. After Alanis Morisette – Wunderkind, Switchfoot – This is Home and Regina Spektor – The Call, the soundtrack for the third installment of C.S. Lewsi classic is just as good. You just feel related to this full-orchestra ballad.

7. Adele – Rolling in the Deep


Adele shows her singing power with the first single from her Sophomore album, “21”. Sounds fragile and powerful at the same time, it’s more upbeat than “Chasing Pavement” but just as heartbreaking.

8. Auburn feat. Iyaz – La La La


Super catchy R n’ B song, you’ll be hooked from the first listen.

9. Christina Aguilera – Express


Soundtrack from the musical of the year (IMO at least), It’s a little repetitive but it’s Christina Aguilera we’re talking about. It’s gooooooooddd.

10. P!nk – Fuckin Perfect


Mid-tempo pop rock track, It’s one of four new track from P!nk Greatest Hits album and it’s totally deserve being placed in a Greatest Hits album. It’s a P!nk classic track, you know, something like “Just Like a Pill” or “Don’t Let Me Get Me”

11. The Script – Science & Faith


Non-single track from the album with the same title, it’s everything you hope from The Script.. Sing-able song, deep lyrics you can feel related to and a catchy tune.

12. B.o.B feat. Rivers Cuomo – Magic


Saying “Magic” repetitively has never been this fun. The chorus is just super good.

2010 Songs You’re So Sick of Hearing

Posted in Music by mibnufajar on 24 January, 2011

Just like 2008 (and all the way to 2009) gives you nausea every time Jason Mraz’s I’m Yours is being played (again), 2010 had its own weapon to disgust you with catchy but overplayed songs. And here it is my list of songs that got you the same feeling. You know, the one that got you saying, “Oh, dear Lord.. Not this song again!”

The Black Eyed Peas – I Gotta Feeling

    This song is like the anthem of dance club in 2010. And it’s not even good. The only acceptable way to enjoy this song is after the fourth glass of whatever alcoholic drinks you can find.


    Ke$ha – Tik Tok

    The fairy godmother of auto-tune were a blast this year with her always drunk and trashy appearances. Too bad her voice is like Naomi Campbell. Beautiful on the record with her auto-tune make up, unbearable on the inside.


    Any song by Taylor Swift (They’re all sounds the same anyway)

    Her voice character is not my favorite, but i have to admit her “Fearless” album contains mostly good stuff. If only I’m having the options only hearing it once or twice a month.



    Lady Gaga – Bad Romance

      This song is good. Not as catchy as the songs from the original The Fame album, but catchy and enjoyable nonetheless…. at least before you’re hearing it for the 1000th time.


      Eminem – Love the Way You Lie

        I think most of us agreed on one thing : The only part we love from this song is Rihanna’s chorus. But to get through all that crappy rap just to hear those four lines, it didn’t worth it. (Thank God the producer ask her to sing a sequel to the song, with an almost-to-none part to Eminem)


        Paramore – The Only Exceptions

          It’s a sweet song. Until someone in your karaoke group think s/he can sing the song with an off pitch voice and a Rachel Berry-esque style (No offense to you, my dear karaoke friend. I really don’t mind with your perfect-pitched, golden voice, guys)


          Justin Bieber – Baby

          How Bieber’s song work : write a line of lyrics, create a cute way to sing it and then sing the line over and over again fro the rest five minutes of the song. It works for me in “One Time”. And it’s still sounds cute in “One Less Lonely Girl”. “Baby” ? Not so much. Too many repetition. and his dance sequence sucks.


          Owl City – Fireflies

          I don’t like the song, but the song is uber popular, sooo.. I’m trying to fall in love with it too (That’s just the wayI am). And just like a conditional love, i got bored after awhile. But the problem is, people’s love for the song doesn’t seems to go away.


          Sinta & Jojo – Keong Racun

            Every time I hear this song being played in my karaoke session, I have to ask forgiveness from God from being a fake pretend, dancing and singing along to the song i never liked. (except for the part “Sorry, sorry, sorry Jack!” I love that and only that)


            Melinda – Cinta Satu Malam

              It’s even worse than Keong Racun. I’m wondering what’s on everyone’s mind. This is one of the ugliest, badly written, badly executed song I’ve ever heard my whole life.


              Love it ? Hate it ? Any song that is out of my radar ?
