Martin Aston of BBC, in his review of Mylo Xyloto, called the song "a serene finale that shows Coldplay understands the change of dynamics more than the dynamics of change." Helen Clarke of MusicOMH described the song as a "lyrical pick-n-mix cover" of "Anthem", writing: "It's an interesting choice to wrap up with; the sedate, poetic lullaby perhaps signaling the end of Martin's 'concept'."

Pop: Have It All by Jason Mraz. Have It All  Mraz said: "‘Have It All’ stood out as a song with a hopeful message to help me heal and move forward; a song with a message of generosity—the antithesis of despondency," "It’s a blessing disguised as a rap song, and it’s meant to be paid forward and shared.” The song speaks of life’s limitless possibilities of hope, togetherness, affection, friendship, intimacy, and beyond.

I deleted a song that was added to the GSOTD playlist yesterday for the simple fact it was already added from a previous post. The song was Who Will Save Your Soul by Jewel. I also deleted the post about the song and the artist, for it also contained duplicate information from an earlier posting. Without further ado, here are the five songs I have picked for GSOTD for this Tuesday. Enjoy the music. 


Christian EDM: Come Back Home (GATTÜSO Remix) by Petey Martin & Lauren Daigle. Come Back Home (GATTÜSO Remix) Lauren Daigle wrote about "Come Back Home" on Twitter on the 8th of January 2021, "This song brings me so much joy, and honestly, I can’t help but keep singing it over and over and over again. I absolutely LOVED working with you (Petey Martin).

EDM//Singer-songwriter: Monster (Single) by Bianca Linta. Monster (Single)  Singer, DJ, songwriter, composer, arranger. Bianca Linta, a Romanian transplant from New York City, can best be described as the “Futuristic Jeanne d'Arc” of singers and DJs. She attacks the silence of the night like a sainted, but seductive, “holy spear-wielding” heroine from an ancient book found in the alternate-reality mythos. After experiencing one of her shows, no matter how things are going in life, you’ll know you have LIVED!

Tropical Pop: Everybody Needs Love by Teddy Beats & Jacob Browne. Everybody Needs Love   Building on his inspiring style of fun, positivity-inspired music, chill house trailblazer Teddy Beats is teaming up with Jacob Browne for his new single “Everybody Needs Love.” The Baltimore-based artist continues to release music at an impressive pace, signifying an artist fully comfortable within his own creative sphere.

Electronic Music: Life Is Love Dancing by Jonathon Conant. Life Is Love Dancing   Jonathon's own description of his song, “Well, the song title comes from my endless search for a deeper understanding of life and the desire to express what I find in a way that ignites compassion in the listener. I was told once that we all struggle to empathize with our own experiences. It’s a reason we allow ourselves to be treated unlovingly. I was trying to occupy a space where I fully empathized and was hit with this kind of joyful feeling of being love dancing around in a body. Thinking maybe we all are, at least potentially. I guess the song is saying how delicate the balance is, how scary it is to occupy life fully, be compassionate and face our shortcomings. Funny cause, a lot of my music is kind of dark and or sexy, so this is a fun departure.

Disco//Funk//Dance: Funkytown by Lipps Inc. Funkytown  "Funkytown" is a song by American disco act Lipps Inc. from their debut album Mouth to Mouth. It was released as the album's lead single in 1980. "Funkytown" reached the top spot in the United States, West Germany, Canada, Austria, Switzerland, Norway, the Netherlands, and Australia, among many others.

Good Thursday evening, here are my five choices for GSOTD (they could be your five choices if you make a request) for today. Enjoy the music.


Punk Rock//Rock: All Your Sisters by Mazzy Star. All Your Sisters    Mazzy Star may have come to an actual end, however, as co-founder Robleck passed away in February 2020. Sandoval, devastated by the loss, posted a poem about her former partner: "What will we do now? Now that you leave me here. Even though the dark blue sky is still radiant and filled with the comforting sadness that holds us together."

Hard Rock: Black Cadillac by Shinedown. Black Cadillac    The band's origins trace back to frontman Brent Smith's prior band, Dreve, which had signed a record deal with Atlantic Records in 2000. The record label, unhappy with Dreve as a whole, dropped the band prior to releasing an album but retained Smith, who they felt was worth developing separately as an artist. Atlantic signed Smith to a development deal where record representatives helped him with his songwriting ability and helped him recruit members for a new band, which would become Shinedown.

Pop//Disco//Adult Contemporary: America (From "The Jazz Singer Soundtrack) by Neil Diamond. America (From "The Jazz Singer Soundtrack)  The simple chorus and upbeat tone of this wonderful 80s tune puts America front and center. It might seem cheesy at first, but it's far more than patriotic drivel; at its core, it is a song about immigrants and those seeking a better life coming to America to make it their home. For all of our ancestors who came before us were all immigrants.

Pop// Rock "n" roll: Only The Lonely by Roy Orbison. Only The Lonely  "Only the Lonely " is a 1960 song written by Roy Orbison and Joe Melson. Orbison's recording of the song, produced by Fred Foster for Monument Records, was the first major hit for the singer. It was described by The New York Times as expressing "a clenched, driven urgency". Released as a 45 rpm single by Monument Records in May 1960, "Only the Lonely" went to No. 2 on the United States Billboard pop music charts on 25 July 1960.

Country Ballad: Sweet Dreams (Of You) by Patsy Cline.  Sweet Dreams (Of You) (Single Version) "Sweet Dreams" or "Sweet Dreams (of You)" is a country ballad, which was written by Don Gibson. Gibson originally recorded the song in 1955; his version hit the top ten of Billboard's country chart but was eclipsed by the success of a competing version by Faron Young.
