Avicii, Miley, And Macklemore In Singles This Week

Avicii,  “For a Better Day”

In this energetic collaboration with Alex Ebert, Avicii has concocted yet another dance hit sure to be the top track on everybody’s party playlist. An upbeat mix of piano riffs and soft percussion, “For a Better Day” is a triumphant piece that is the perfect pick-me-up on those days when productivity is at a low point.

Miley Cyrus,  “Dooo It!”

Straight off Miley’s surprise 23-track album, the psychedelic single “Dooo it!” is exactly what one would expect from an album titled Miley Cyrus and Her Dead Petz. Repetitive, whiny, and uninspired, Cyrus’ odd ode to marijuana and peace make this dull collaboration a catastrophe.

Macklemore and Ryan Lewis,  “Downtown”

4 stars

This new rap release stays true to Macklemore’s signature style of silliness and slight stupidity. Though certainly not his greatest or most profound track, “Downtown” is an exuberant ode to the modern moped. It’s the kind of catchy song that remains in your head for weeks on end. This comical single will quickly ascend the charts thanks to its ridiculous premise and laughable lyrics.
