3 Songs You Should Be Listening To (11-23-09)

Mayday Parade – “The Silence”

Alternative punk is such a pleasant genre because the hooks are so often very memorable, and in the case of “The Silence” by Tallahassee, Florida rock group Mayday Parade, we’ve got ourselves another winner. Lead singer Derek Sanders pushes his vocals to the upper end of his range for a chorus that hits the eardrums just right.  The overall result is something definitely radio-worthy.

Emma Jacob – “Julianna”

We understand that country music is something of an acquired taste, but whether or not you dig the melody of this song (and we certainly do), it’s the lyrics and message accompanying the music that makes it memorable.  Jacob preaches self-confidence in young women through a witty narrative, which will reach a lot of females in the high school age market.  Apparently it works on twentysomething men, too.

30 Seconds to Mars – “Kings and Queens”

We at Fresh Scouts have always loved 30 Seconds to Mars, and their new single “Kings and Queens” is one of their best songs yet. Not only does the track kick off with the triumphant squawk of an eagle (awesome), but it has the epic feel of a movie trailer’s energetic title track. It’s not poppy, but it’s got the kind of hook that will stick in your head all day long.
