Scary Monsters and Jason Mraz: Skrillex, Seether

“I WON’T GIVE UP”                        JASON MRAZ

Nice comeback single from Jason.     Like his other big hits, “less is more”, Jason lets the simple melody wrap around his heartfelt love song message.   The end of the song features his signature fast paced, lyrical wordplay.   You know this song will be all over the radio this winter.   The video shows postcards and handwritten letters.    Times change but emails and texts can’t compare to actually receiving something a real person wrote down with their own handwriting, bought a stamp, and sent it to you.  



“TONIGHT”                      SEETHER

Seether have released some amazing songs through the years.   “Broken”, the duet with Amy Lee, their rock cover of “Careless Whisper”, “Rise Above It” – one of the best positive message rock singles in the last decade.    They’re back with “Tonight” another upbeat track, check out the lyrics:




I’m not gonna waste this
This opportunity’s mine
I’m sick of complaining
About a beautiful life


How did we get here?
Did we forget all the things inside?
And how do we stay here?
Do we embrace all the things denied?


I feel so alive tonight
You got me feeling sublime
I want to yell it from the rooftops down
Until it’s over, and we’re older

“ROCK N ROLL WILL TAKE YOU TO THE MOUNTAIN”     SKRILLEX

Not 100% sure if I love this, really like this, or am annoyed by this!     Sonny John Moore goes by the stage name, Skrillex, and he’s the leading dub-step artist of the past year or two.   He’s done remixes for everyone as diverse as Rihanna and Korn.    This song has an outrageous electronic bass, high energy, and in the right mood, it’s the perfect jam to crank up your speakers and get your body moving!     The “Rude Boy” break at the 2 minute mark is intense and so much fun!
