I’m about to get tomatoes thrown at me, but I can’t stand Adele’s voice. WAIT! Let me explain. I was on board right up to her latest release. Her lyrics are painfully honest. Her melodies are mathmatecally structured to make you ugly cry. This last CD though? I actually paid for and then deleted 25. Her whining has reach level expert and I just can’t. So guess what made me happy today?
Yes, Shockwave Outside The Rocks is featuring Fame on Fire AGAIN, because they’re brilliant and they deserve another spotlight for this haunting cover. It’s a great move, taking pop songs and twisting them up in the pop punk style, and while they’re not the only ones doing it, they’re my current favorite. Simply put, they have the midas touch when it comes to repurposing pop. And while pop punk has its own element of whine to their cheesy lyrics, it’s one that’s completely tolerable, and in the case of Fame on Fire, addicting as hell.
