First there is Matt & Kim’s song from a few years ago, “Daylight.” It’s good, it’s catchy, it was remixed for this video game theme song featuring De La Soul.
Now we have this new song from Imagine Dragons, “It’s Time.” It’s getting attention. The song got the Glee treatment last week (at first I was faked out into thinking it was going to be a cover of the a capella version of “Call Your Girlfriend”) and I read about it on Grantland.com today too.
I was listening to the new No Doubt song, “Settle Down,” and it sounded familiar. The chorus in particular.
It sounds like No Doubt has finally grown up, right? Neo-No Doubt with more gravitas? Or maybe these themes are just called to mind because it sounds oddly similar to the 2007 jam “Big Girls Don’t Cry” by Kids Incorporated star Stacy “Fergie” Ferguson.
By the way, if you miss Fergie, there is a nine-minute version of this video. I’ve only made it to the 4:28-mark. Also, Gwen Stefani looks beautiful.
