Songs you may have missed: Haiku edition

A round-up of songs that escaped the full glare of the Discopop Directory spotlight - but are still worthy of note.

For some reason, I decided to write Haikus about each of this week's entries. The results are poor, to say the least.

1) Royal Blood - Happy
When Pharrell hears this
He might well reconsider
His entire career

2) Selena Gomez - The Heart Wants What It Wants
The spoken intro's
Excruciating candour
Will make your skin crawl

3) Take That - These Days
Truncated trio
Should have called up Nile Rodgers
For this turgid song

4) LoneLady - Groove It Out
The next six minutes
Should be irresistible
In toe-tapping terms

5) Lorde - Yellow Flicker Beat (from The Hunger Games)
Armageddon still
Has the best theme song, but this
Is acceptable

6) Ekkah - Last Chance To Dance
Strap on your hotpants
And sashay to the dancefloor
Before it's too late

7) The Pierces - Devil Is A Lonely Night
Belinda Carlisle
It's almost like you never
Went away at all

8) Kendrick Lamar - I
Kendrick did a great
Freestyle over Shake It Off
But this isn't it

9) Ella Henderson - Yours
Ella, oh Ella
Wrote an ode to her fella
The song is stella(r)

10) McBusted - Air Guitar
Danny, Dougie, Tom
Harry, James and Matt. Looking
Quite old now, frankly

11) Jose Gonzalez - Every Age
Existential angst
Is one way to describe this
Although hard to spell

12) Ludacris - Good Lovin' (ft Miguel)
Butter smooth slow jam
Too good to spoil with bad jokes
Like all the above

Well, that was unedifying. At least the songs were good, eh?
