Singles 8/19

Notes:

– My first Vietnamese winner!

– I’m often cool towards leaked tracks or first singles. I may have underrated Sleigh Bells’ “Hyper Dark.”

– What the Chainsmokers said inspired the writing of “Closer”: “I went to school in Syracuse with all these super wealthy girls that I was enamored with at first because it was so foreign to me because of where I was from in my Podunk town in Maine. I was just so unimpressed with them. I got to know them and slept with them and all that stuff, so I wanted to write a really unsexy sex song. Shawn Frank, who’s our extremely talented friend, him and I had this idea for a song. We sat down and kind of made up a story about meeting your ex-girlfriend in a bar and being so drunk with her and talking about the hookup in a very vivid way, like, ‘Holy shit, we’re hooking up and I know everything about you either for better or for worse..’”
