So let get get to the big news right away: I’m officially planning on retiring from music reviewing. Yeah, really. I did say before that there’s going to be a time where I’m not going to be doing this anymore and that time is quickly coming. My heart isn’t in it to do this anymore and I want to move on to the next stage of my life, which is making comic books. I’m currently working on improving myself as an artist and writer and I’m developing a comic book that I plan to release sometime next summer or fall. But there are lists that I want to before I make my retirement official. First is the Worst and Best lists of 2020 that will continue as scheduled. Then, in the first two months of 2021, I will release two final lists and my final posts on this blog: the Worst Number One Songs list and the Best Number One Songs list. I’ll be looking back at 60+ years of Billboard history and put together the best and worst of all the songs that hit number one on the Hot 100. It is unfortunate that I won’t be doing this any longer, but my heart and mindset has shifted to a new passion and I wish the best for the new generation of music reviewers. To longtime readers, I thank all of you for keeping me going this long. As for new readers, well, you got hundreds of posts that you can read up on, so have fun with that.

That’s all the updates I have for now. Stay classy, you lovely people.

  1. The next two Target Practices are gonna be fun! Are you gonna do a 100 Best Songs of the 2010s like you’ve done for the other decades or anything else to make the end of the 2010s?

      1. And that is based on how there was a pause between the last worst of list of 19xx or 20xx decade and the best of that decade since it takes a little more time to compile ergo something we may see in the first quarter of 2020.

        Then there maybe a discussion of the grammys before this year is over as the nominees come out in December.

  2. I noticed you haven’t done a Musical Appreciation in a while, so how about you do one on Cee Lo Green’s “Fuck You”. Even though it’s #2 on your Best of 2011 list, you barely even talk about it. I would like to hear your thoughts on it.

  3. What are your predictions for this year’s grammy awards? Mine are: Record of the Year will go to This is America, Album of the Year will go to Black Panther: the Album, Song of the year will go to Shallow, and Best New Artist will go to H.E.R. I’m sorry, but once someone in the Best New Artist category has five nominations, including Album of the Year, they’re winning no matter how popular their opponents are.

  4. So this is where we reach the end of the line on the worst of lists. Any Ideas on what may replace those? Since you posted a lot of 90s rock n roll in your songs of the week, you might want to do a rock songs series.

  5. I’m planning on listening to the 1958 and 1959 year end lists soon for my best and worst lists for every year of the Billboard Hot 100. I’m already nervous of how my lists will turn out given the warnings you and others have about this era. Can’t wait for 1959 and the best songs of the 60s!

    Here are some suggestions for WTF Lyrics:
    She Knows by Ne-Yo ft. Juicy J
    “I keep me two hoes like that fella Jack Tripper. And I kill that pussy like my name Jack The Ripper.”

    GDFR by Flo Rida ft. Sage The Gemini & Lookas
    “Ladies put your lipstick up. Double entendre. Double entendre.”

  6. I think a cool idea for next year could be an Underrated Songs Review series, where you can ask your readers to recommend songs that either charted low or didn’t chart at all and you give your opinion on them, along with a grade from A to F (like Billboard Hot 100 Top 40 Review). What do you think about it?

    1. Uhh underrated songs is too broad. Any song that did not make the top five could be underrated as well as the vast sea of songs that don’t get enough rotation.

  7. What are your thoughts on these four 2018 EDM hits: Promises by Calvin Harris feat. Sam Smith, Body by Loud Luxury feat. Brando, Solo by Clean Bandit feat. Demi Lovato and Side Effects by The Chainsmokers feat. Emily Warren? My grades for each are: high B for Promises, low D for Body, A for Solo, and F for Side Effects.
