This blog is dedicated to spotlighting select songs of independent or small-label artists. These songs can often (but not always) be characterized as pop music, encompassing its many sub-genres. However, none of these songs can be classified as “Top 40” (or any sub-genre thereof) typically heard on American radio and television. Proving that good, quality pop music is available…you just have to be willing to search for it or know where to find it. This blog takes away all of the work and leads the reader/listener straight to the discovery and enjoyment. The ultimate goal, of course, is to bring these “unknown” artists to the attention of the general public and give them well-deserved attention.

Song in the Spotlight: “Sooner” (Andrew Allen, from Sooner – Single (2012))

Genre:  Sunshine Pop

Review:  If you’re having a not-so-stellar day, “Sooner”  provides an instantaneous mood enhancer.  Think about the one you love, assume the chair-dancing position and allow yourself to be transported to a better place.  If you haven’t guessed already, “Sooner” is a happy song filled with hope and good feelings.  If that’s your cup of tea, then make it your mission to download it today!  Mr. Allen has a voice well-suited for this type of sunshiny pop and he also makes the lyrics more interesting by telling us the story was related to him by someone else (when we really know it’s auto-biographical…wink, wink).  So, put the doldrums away and, instead, let the seduction of “Sooner” put a smile on your face.  Rating: 4 stars (out of 5)
