Re: Overlooked Songs 3: 2010s Edition - Round 1 Week 8

It's a shame that most of you seem to think 1950 is generic. I particularly love the bridge. It starts with a beautiful melody, adds a great ascending bassline, a nice harmony, and ends with a crescendo on a repeating leading tone, all elements that work really well for me and are not present in son...

List was alright overall, but the fact that they put "All the Stars" in the top 50 and then openly admit that it's not because the song is good but because it was in Black Panther is one of the most egregious examples of critics not caring about music so much as cultural commentary.
