On this especially snowy March Tuesday morning, we introduce to you a brand new Jet Fuel Jukebox. Welcome it with open arms, won’t you?
It seems that Charli XCX’s new mixtape (which dropped this past Friday) has made quite the impression on both Jake and I, as we’ve both decided to highlight a track from her latest release, Number 1 Angel. Elsewhere, you’ll notice new tracks from Lorde and Little Dragon, who both showed up on this playlist over the past few weeks with their previous singles.
The 20-song playlist is rounded out by additions from Anderson Paak, Foxes, and Vampire Weekend.
Hey, fellow music fanatics and friends! Thank you for your continued support. This blog is getting popular, and I owe it all to my readers!
This next song is an old favorite of mine, but I would first like to write a brief disclaimer: I am not taking any particular stance or political position with this song choice. I just love the music, the artist, and the poetic quality this piece possesses. I am in no way trying to push any agenda or viewpoint, I am simply here to analyze a piece of art.
That being said, I will introduce our next song: “Buzzcut Season” by Lorde, from her album, Pure Heroine. It might just be the fact that I too have unruly, dark brown, curly hair, but I have always had a soft spot for Lorde, and this song is definitely one of her best. Her willowy voice has the power to plunge listeners into a deep, dreamy state. And I would know. I once listened to this song on repeat for a full 15 hours while reading Ayn Rand’s The Fountainhead.
You can look online at hundreds of interpretations of this song. Some say it is about society’s corrupt influences on teens, some claim it is a summer ballad, and others just think it is a mystical song and don’t really care about the meaning.
I, for this blog, will be analyzing the song within the context of war, as this is the way I have always listened to it.
It’s Tuesday yet again, so toss your quarter into the newest Jet Fuel Jukebox to hear some of the best songs around (actual playlist is free to listen to; no quarter required).
This week’s playlist includes another 20 songs for your listening pleasure. The likes of Iggy Pop, Colleen Green, Lorde, and many others round out the multitude of artists we’re highlighting this week.
