If there is one consistent theme in my list of top ten songs of 2018, are the simple pop melodies hidden under lavish music productions. In short, I love a good pop tune. Each song on my list has those key ingredients.
From the dance cover of the oldies song, “Boogaloo en Monterrey,” by Tejano legend Ruben Ramos to the rock-pop edge of Zoe’s “Azul,” these songs had me moving my feet and whistling their choruses all year long.
The mad beauty about this collection of songs is each artists ability to lament about love and challenge the listener concurrently. Not an easy feat in any genre or language yet these songs do so with vision and expertise. Enjoy!
