Pop Rock: Uncharted by Sara Bareilles. Uncharted  Jim Farber of New York Daily News wrote that: "Uncharted matches jaunty piano figures to a spritz of strings."

The song was released on January 13th, 2011. 

Electro-pop: Sweet Dream by Alessia Cara. Sweet Dream   ‘Sweet Dream’ represents the hardship and helplessness surrounding my last couple of years. It’s about insomnia and the hoops my brain jumps through at night while I’m supposed to be asleep. Never fun!”

On 13 July, the artist shared a 30-second video of what could potentially be the name and part of the lyrics of her future track. Later the same day Shakira revealed the cover artwork and its title.

Alina and Galimatias soon began working on additional songs together, releasing the single Make you Feel plus an EP, which includes Drift and Pretty Thoughts.

R&B: You're The One by Leela James. You're The One   (July 16, 2021) There's no question that singer supreme Leela James has a voice for the ages. And the age she decides to go for on her newest single, "You're The One," in the 90s. Another preview to her upcoming album Complicated, "You're the One" is unapologetically old school, with James' instantly recognizable husky lead floating in call-and-response mode with her background singers over a decidedly retro-cool groove, courtesy of producer Reno Reagan (Carl Thomas, BJ The Chicago Kid). Each advanced single we hear gets us more excited for Leela's full BMG-released album, due in two weeks. In the meantime, check out "You're The One," and bask in an artist who is always worth hearing. Written by Chris Rizik.

Good Saturday evening, I will be adding three songs to the GSOTD post and playlist. Enjoy the music. 

 

Alternative Rock: Good Thing Gone by Elle King. Good Thing Gone  On the soul-rock ballad “Good Thing Gone,” American singer Elle King feels the pain in goodbye. The song draws from vintage southern soul, and serves as the first promo single from King’s second album "Shake The Spirit".  

Blues//Singer-songwriter: Bombshelter by Laura Reed. Bombshelter   Laura Reed relocated from Johannesburg to North Carolina while she was still just a child, but her family carried their culture and traditions (as well as their love of writing) with them wherever they went. At nine years old, Reed saw her first poem published in print, and at fourteen, she picked up her first guitar. “I actually taught myself how to play on my own,” Reed explains. “At that age, I was always getting into trouble and being grounded, so I’d spend hours every day in my room just learning chords and deconstructing songs.” Open mics and cover sets led to original recordings and homemade CDs, and before she’d even finished high school, it was clear what Reed was meant to do with the rest of her life. She took her singular blend of rock, blues, and funk on the road with her band, Deep Pocket, performing more than 200 pulse-pounding shows a year and making her own breaks along the way. 

Indie Rock: Never Let Me Go by Florence + The Machine. Never Let Me Go  "Never Let Me Go" is a song by English indie rock band Florence and the Machine from their second studio album, Ceremonials. The song was written by Florence Welch and Paul Epworth while the production was handled by Epworth. Island Records released the song as the third single from the album on 30 March 2012. The band first premiered the song during one of their concerts before the release of the album on 15 October 2011. A Clams Casino remix of the song was placed on the 12" white vinyl single which was available for pre-order on 22 March 2012.

Until sometime on Monday, take care and stay safe.

Blues: I've Always Been Lonely by B.B. King.  I've Always Been Lonely  Riley B. King (September 16, 1925 – May 14, 2015), known professionally as B.B. King, was an American blues singer-songwriter, guitarist, and record producer. He introduced a sophisticated style of soloing based on fluid string bending, shimmering vibrato, and staccato picking that influenced many later blues electric guitar players. AllMusic recognized King as "the single most important electric guitarist of the last half of the 20th century". King was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1987, and is one of the most influential blues musicians of all time, earning the nickname "The King of the Blues", and is considered one of the "Three Kings of the Blues Guitar" (along with Albert King and Freddie King, none of whom are blood-related). King performed tirelessly throughout his musical career, appearing on average at more than 200 concerts per year into his 70s. In 1956 alone, he appeared at 342 shows. King was born on a cotton plantation in Itta Bena, Mississippi, and later worked at a cotton gin in Indianola, Mississippi. He was attracted to music and the guitar in church and began his career in juke joints and local radio. He later lived in Memphis, Tennessee, and Chicago, and as his fame grew, toured the world extensively. King died at the age of 89 in Las Vegas, Nevada, on May 14, 2015.

One commentator noted that Gibson "developed a large and varied repertoire after long stays with numerous bands, many recording sessions, and performances in Chicago nightclubs".
