Evie Irie – Little More Love

No doubt this girl has a voice. She reminds me of Sting’s daughter who used to go by the artist named, ‘I Blame Coco’. Positive message in the track and production is stellar. The song is well crafted and has a nice melody. The video is all inclusive and shares the positive message of the track.

VERSE
Take a hit it’ll help you calm down
I know that you’re tired
Don’t you wanna be one of the cool kids now
One of the cool kids now

Get a grip everybody gets around
Pull that dress a little higher
Everybody’s doing just a little more now
Just a little more now

PRE-CHORUS
Hurry up, hurry up make your choice
No one’s gonna hear your voice
All of this anxiety Creeping up inside of me, stop

CHORUS
We just need a little more love 
People taking care of each other
You’re my sister, you are my brother
Yeah we just need a little more love 
Starve the hate and feed the kindness
Put all of the fear behind us

We just need a little more love, love
Just a little more x3

VERSE
Everybody knows that boys don’t cry
Just keep it all inside you
You don’t want to show no one your weakness now
Cause it’s not allowed

They laugh at what you’re wearing
And it’s way overdone
Now your holding back tears, while you’re holding a gun
If anyone would listen, even just one
Think of what could be done x2

CHORUS
We just need a little more love 
People taking care of each other
You’re my sister, you are my brother
Yeah we just need a little more love 
Starve the hate and feed the kindness
Put all of the fear behind us

We just need a little more love, love
Just a little more x3

BRIDGE
Shine your light
Cause you never know
Who’s in the darkness
Please don’t be heartless

Shine your light
Cus only heaven knows
When someone’s hurtin’
It’s always worth it

CHORUS

TTRRUUCES – The Disco

This disco is apparently in the Caribbean with a rock guitar. The rhythm on this is has a tropical vibe and is accented with disco string stabs. The song is catchy, has a solid beat and overall fun vibe to it. I can hear quite a bit of Micheal Jackson influence on this track from how the vocals are sung to the Caribbean beat. Of course, there is the classic disco sound of lasers on this track as well, which reminds me of Lipps Inc. – Funky Town

Lyrics:

You say you love me but then you don't answer the phone
Saturday night at the disco you're dancing alone 

You were never convinced by what your mama would say
And she'll never forgive you no way-o
She said boy you better work all day
'cause you're every night at the disco

Boy - you're every night at the disco

Yelle – Karate

Back with another Yelle track and video. Yelle not only consistently produces great tracks but they always seem to find a simple premise to build a music video with. This time out, we are in the Dojo of dance. And lead singer Julie Budet (aka Yelle) is in red to contrast the with Dojo dancer in white. Was hoping for a dance showdown at some point, which didn’t happen but the video is entertaining nonetheless.

As for the tune itself, it’s rooted in a Hip Hop vibe of old. Has elements of house like the synth bassline and the keyboard chord stabs. The love on this track for me is the last minute or so of the track with that heartfelt synth lead line that drops around the 2:20 mark. Just another great track from the massive catalog of Yelle. The main line of the track is:

“Ton kimono est un pyjama” which translates to “Your kimono is a pyjama”.
