Top 5ive: Songs of the Summer


With summer almost over, it’s time list the top songs of summer 2015.  Here’s The Pop Project:with Steven Kaufman’s Top 5ive Songs of Summer 2015

5. Carly Rae Jepsen “I Really Like You”

The song is catchier than most of the song this summer. It’s one of the best songs for your summer crush. Click here for my review of it.


4. Walk the Moon “Shut Up and Dance”

The song has played and featured everywhere this summer. It’s rather catchy and good, especially from a band that didn’t get any traction until this song was released. They were pretty much the Carly Rae Jepsen of bands and “Shut Up and Dance ” is their “Call Me Maybe.”


3. Selena Gomez “Good For You”

One of the most sultry songs of the summer for when you are looking to “go all the way” and by “go all the way” I mean start dating. Yep, it’s a songs about wanting to be good for the first date.Click here for my review of it.


2. Demi Lovato “Cool For the Summer”

The song for curious summer flirtations with the same gender, or any gender for that matter. But don’t tell your mother because this song is one of the coolest songs for the summer. Click here for my review of it.


1. 5 Seconds of Summer “She’s Kinda Hot”

The summer shout out to be the being okay with yourself and not caring what others think of you. It’s rather the most surprising hit of the summer. It’s catchy and it’s kinda hot though. Click her for our review of it.


Honorable Mention: Sage the Gemini feat. Nick Jonas “Good Thing”

There’s the review for it…it explains why it’s an honorable mention

Kinda Hot EP of the Summer


Holy @%#$&! 5 Seconds of Summer has blessed the United States with an EP of their hit single “She’s Kinda Hot.” The EP is really kinda hot though (see what I did!?!).

The EP varies but features two different versions of the single “She’s Kinda Hot” and two unreleased songs, which could actually like four to five unreleased songs depending where you purchased the album.  All the songs on the EP are pretty much too legit to quit. All the songs on there are pretty much crack for your ears. It even has a song off of their new album “Sounds Good Feels Good” called “The Girl Who Cried Wolf” and it’s pretty much my new favorite thing in the history of things.  “Over and Out” would have to be my 2nd favorite song.

Like I said in the last single review I did for 5SOS, their music has been on fleet lately. Click the link to listen to the EP.

5SOS Song’s Kinda Hot



The Australian band recently released their newest single entitled “She’s Kinda Hot.” The song is actually rather amazing. It’s definitely not like their previous singles from their self-titled debut album.

The song is starts off rather nice guitar riff before getting into the lyrics. Now the lyrics are rather simple but yet are rather deep (not to mention that it says the word bitchin’ in it!). It’s really talking about how you will be fine if you have dreams that no one really understands, something the band themselves have probably gone through.

The song is more punk pop oriented. This definitely fit them more. While their previous singles were rock, they were a tad bit mainstream, by which I mean power pop, and somewhat didn’t feel like them.

Overall, the singles is something that is catchy and will make your rock out. Here’s the single for your listening pleasure:
