25 Songs That Matter Right Now

March 20, 2019

Yearly, New York Times Magazine releases their annual music issue. Each year highlights 25 songs, last year focusing on the 25 songs that show us where music is going. This year, they changed it up and featured 25 songs that matter to our music era at this moment.

In that list are the likes of Bruce Springsteen, Travis Scott, and Lady Gaga. The biggest ones for us were The 1975’s 'Love It If We Made It' and Weezer’s 'Can’t Knock The Hustle'.

NYTMag puts 'Love It If We Made It' at 22 with the caption, “a shameless polymath pop act delivers the cascading-contemporary-references track we didn’t know we needed” and is accompanied by an in-depth analysis by Steven Hyden. This song comes fresh off of their most recent album, A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships, which was released earlier this year.

As for Weezer, NYTMag places 'Can’t Knock The Hustle' at 23 with the following caption, “Growing up means seeing heroes age, rudely, at the same pace as you” and is accompanied by an in-depth analysis by Lydia Kiesling. This song comes from their self-titled Black album, which just released last week (3/1). 'Can’t Knock The Hustle' is a song reimagined from a Jay-Z song by the same title.
