  1. You (So Alive!)

    Posted on

    Check out my new song "You (So Alive!)" feat. Fay Cannings!

    Words, music & arrangement by: A. Robin
    Vocals by: Fay Cannings
    Produced by: SuperCool-Guy

    Verse 1
    Kind of physical
    Kind of spiritual
    I’ve never felt this way before… it’s kind of magical

    Pre-Chorus 1
    Been around the world, searching for the answer
    And here you stand, it’s you I was after

    You… you make me whole
    You… you make me feel like I’m invincible
    You… you take me home
    You lift me up, I don’t know how
    You make me feel… so alive!

    Verse 2
    This feeling taking over me… is unstoppable

    Pre-Chorus 2
    You came to me when I was down
    I’ll stand by you, our lives are bound


    And when we touch I feel your fire
    You make me feel… alive!

    CHORUS +

    You lift me up, I don’t know how
    You make me feel… so alive!

    10. Icona Pop feat. Charli XCX: I Love It

    Written by: Charlotte Aitchison, Patrik Berger, Linus Eklöw
    Produced by: Patrik Berger, Style of Eye
    Undeniable hook.  Title should be "I Don't Care! I love It!"


    9. Daft Punk feat. Pharrell Williams: Get Lucky

    Written by: Thomas Bangalter, Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo, Pharrell Williams, Nile Rodgers
    Produced by: Thomas Bangalter, Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo
    The robots go back in time with Nile Rogers…
    Don't - don't - don't - don't stop the beat
    I can't - can't - can't - can't control my feet
    Don't Stop! Can't Stop! Won't Stop!!!


    8. Bruno Mars: Gorilla

    Written by: Bruno Mars, Philip Lawrence, Ari Levine
    Produced by: The Smeezingtons, Jeff Bhasker, Emile Haynie, Mark Ronson
    Original and dynamic arrangement, with a huge, powerful chorus.  Makes me want to air-guitar the power chords!



    7. Emmelie de Forest: Only Teardrops

    Written by: Lise Cabble, Julia Fabrin Jakobsen, Thomas Stengaard
    Produced by: Frederik Thaae
    The Eurovision Song Contest gets a bad rap for being cheesy, but there were many great songs in 2013.  This one, the winner, is a great slice of pop.


    6. Roberto Bellarosa: Love Kills

    Written by: Jukka Immonen, Iain Farquharson
    Produced by: Jukka Immonen
    Another one from Eurovision, and the best of 2013 IMO.  Perfect pop.


    5. Lorde: Buzzcut Season

    Written by: Ella Yelich O'Connor, Joel Little
    Produced by: Joel Little, Ella Yelich O'Connor
    New Zealand
    My favourite song from the brilliant debut album.  Great mood and original soundscapes.


    4. Taylor Swift: 22

    Written by: Taylor Swift, Max Martin, Shellback
    Produced by: Taylor Swift, Max Martin, Shellback
    I love Taylor.  What a gorgeous, talented, and well-adjusted kid!  This song is so positive and catchy.  I may no longer be 22, but I want to sing it anyway!


    3. Katy Perry: Roar

    Written by: Katy Perry, Lukasz Gottwald, Max Martin, Bonnie McKee, Henry Walter
    Produced by: Dr. Luke, Max Martin, Cirkut
    From lyrics to structure to production to video, this is a perfectly crafted and fine-tuned product, built by the best pros in the business, and I say this with the greatest admiration.  Katy Perry's got it!  The pitch-bended low synth sound is killer and IMHO makes the song.


    2. Of Monsters and Men: Little Talks

    Written by: Nanna Bryndís Hilmarsdóttir, Ragnar Þórhallsson
    Produced by: Of Monsters And Men, Aron Þór Arnarsson
    Great song, beautiful video, a bit mad...  Fresh, unique, organic instrumentation, great energy.


    1. Paul McCartney: New

    Written by: Paul McCartney
    Produced by: Mark Ronson
    Macca is The Man.  A genius and an inspiration.  The song is fresh and positive and puts me in a great mood.  I love it.
