Songs you may have missed: The comeback edition

Woah - where did the last three weeks go?

Well, mostly I was in bed fighting off an horrific viral infection. Then it was the Brits (Adele won a few, you may have heard) and now I finally have some time to write my poor old neglected blog.

To make up for lost time, here's a mega "songs you may have missed" post, with six word synopses for every song. Buckle up and get ready.

1) Beyonce - Formation
Impressive visuals. Impressive lyrics. Underwhelming song.

2) Lorde - Life On Mars
Dignified and understated. A perfect tribute.

3) Rihanna ft Drake - Work
Rihanna's BOGOF offer. Warning: contains nipple.

4) Tinie Tempah - Girls Like (ft Zara Larsson)
"Tell JK that I'm still Rowling."

5) Dua Lipa - Last Dance
Is Dua Lipa Kosovan for "two lips"?

6) All Saints - One Strike
A genuinely perfect comeback single: 9/10

7) Pet Shop Boys - The Pop Kids
Nostalgia never sounded more contemporary.

8) Halsey - Colors
Stay tuned for the shock twist.

9) The 1975 - The Sound
Desperate, shallow, cringeworthy. Trying too hard.

10) Lissie - I Will Always Love You
Stop you in your tracks amazing.

11) Little May - Remind Me
Melodic indie direct from Sydney, Australia.

12) Little Mix - Black Magic (Brits performance)
They deserved to win best single.

13) Katy B, Craig David, Major Lazer - Who Am I
A ballad. A big, ballbusting ballad.

14) FKA Twigs - Good To Love
Rick-Nowels co-write. Possible breakthrough single?

15) Usher - Chains (ft Nas and Bibi Bourelly)
Unflinching, powerful call for police reform.

16) Charli XCX - Vroom Vroom EP
Harder, darker, dirtier. Welcome back, XCX.

17) Jake Bugg - On My One
Scratchy bluegrass from, er, Nottingham.

18) Icona Pop - I Want Someone Who Can Dance
"Not someone I can talk to."

Phew. Well done if you made it this far. And do let me know if there's anything I missed.
