Song of the week: Sept. 17th


Several Optimist staff writers have decided to come together and pick their favorite songs each week based on recent releases, personal feelings, and general overall enjoyment.


September 17th:


Will: My song of the week is “Uber everywhere” by MadeinTYO (feat. Travis Scott) because it’s so wavy. The chorus is really nice and the beat is catchy. It’s my favorite song by MadeinTYO and the inclusion of Travis Scott only heightens the amount that I enjoy it.


Calvin: I’m really feeling “Sunny duets (feat. themind)” by Noname this week. Noname is an extremely good rap/rnb singer, and she demonstrates that on this track. However, what really stands out for me is  TheMIND’s singing on this track, it sounds amazing, his lyrics are catchy and the delivery is smooth like butter. Great song.


Seth: “Write to me from naples” is a good song for describing this week. Sung by the iconic Dean Martin, the song keeps in true Martin form with the incorporation of the tremolo guitar and crisp backing vocals. I find this song comforting in the darkest times.


Ethan: The song I feel best suits this week is “Mamacita” by Travis Scott (feat. Rich Homie Quan and Young Thug). It has a beat that seems like it was crafted in the desert. Almost like something out of a John Wayne movie. It includes an electric guitar riff that is ever present and thumping throughout. A great song to listen to for many different occasions.
