Jess Paul's Wrecked Radio is a comedic rock news show. We're "The Soup" with emo bangs :P Feel free to move about WreckedRadio.net for music news, band galleries, and extra videos. This could be the start of a beautiful, scene-kid relationship.
SOTD: “A Drowning” by How To Destroy Angels
Let’s slow it down, shall we? This song is very liquid: it’s pensive and flowing. Hmm… the title is all of a sudden very relevant.
SOTD: “Young Blood” by The Naked and Famous
You know this one! A handful of you guys dropped their name ages ago as a new band I should check out, and there they went recording a giant summer hit.
SOTD: “Of Men and Angels” by The Rocket Summer
We spoke to Bryce as both Wrecked interviewers and huge fans. TRS music reaches listeners on many levels for a pop-punk-rock act. The multi-talented musician writes about the depths of his faith here, and even if you’re not religious (*raises hand in back of class*), the beautiful theme can be translated to any other idea or person for which you feel adoration and reverence. LOVE!
SOTD: “Lights Out” by Santigold
How have I not had a Santigold #SotD yet?? To me she’s… well… gold. I love all the songs on her (kinda) self-titled album. Here’s one of those.
SOTD: “Back 2 Good” by Matchbox Twenty
A perfect example of desperation, guilt and yearning in an early 2000s rock tune. Rob Thomas vocals and the slow-building instrumentals beautifully reflect the themes and thoughts of gnawing frustration. This song is a part of many’s history. And just dated enough to still retain that 4:3 frame ratio.
SOTD: “Ballroom Baby” by The Checks
Here’s another song I describe as effortless. It’s the kind of song you listen to with your blood. And I’m not even talking about being on drugs, but it helps in order to like this video. Still, awesome single, guys.
SOTD: “Orphan Age” by Strike Anywhere
This song rocks so much it’s here and gone before you’re done listening to it. Seriously, it’s just shy of 2 minutes: I often play it twice, back to back to make up for missing time.
Great song, Strike Anywhere, you have my attention 2x over. I want more.
SOTD: “Somebody” by Bonnie McKee
This song is almost too simple. Every 16yo aspiring songwritter has penned and played a very similar song. But it’s in that effortless, relatable simplicity that made a 16yo me so attracted to it.
EQUATION: Take a gorg redhead songstress + overly-emotive lyrics X classic, pop-piano vocals and themes = THIS SONG.
Truth is, Bonnie has written more hits than you’re aware of. She’s co-written for Katy Perry and has solely penned songs for Britney Spears, Miranda Cosgrove, Christina Aguilera, Lea Michele, Kesha, Avril Lavigne, Kelly Clarkson, Carly Rae Jepsen…. wow the list goes on.
Props to this girl. She has won pop.
