Welcome to the "Daily Song Drop": theguysfrom.com's song of the day feature where our resident indie music writer and former DJ Shaun Cordingley features a song every weekday that he feels you need to hear.
Don't Tell Ma - Peg Parnevik
It is super rare that a pure pop song gets into my head (and thus into the DSD), but that's exactly what happened with Peg Parnevik's "Don't Tell Ma". Parnevik (yes, daughter of Jesper Parnevik, the professional golfer) is quite well known in her native Sweden, even featuring with her family in Parneviks, an award-winning reality show, so she is more well-known than most artists I talk about here, but she is still just starting to break out into a more global audience, so...
Check out "Don't Tell Ma" below:
First off: yes, the "woo" as a hook into the song is absolutely perfect--as soon as I heard "Don't Tell Ma" I had that "woo" in my head for hours afterward. What I really appreciate is that the song manages to keep an upbeat, happy pop feel throughout, even with a few tempo shifts, thanks in large part to a peppy rhythm set behind Parnevik's excellent pop vocals.
Frankly, "Don't Tell Ma" is just a fun, summery pop song, and occasionally, even weird ex-DJ's like me need some of that in our lives.
If you dig "Peg Parnevik" then you really should check out her other singles "We Are" and "Ain't No Saint"--she has a really good pop sound, and really, every summer playlist needs a little pure pop in it, and I wholeheartedly recommend you consider Peg Parnevik for that slot.
Here's the May 2017 DSD Playlist! We're only missing one track this month (and I'll hopefully be able to add it in later)! It's wonderful, as always, but that should be assumed when I'm making playlists of nothing but songs I enjoy...
Come on back tomorrow for our next Song of the Day!
