Track of the Day: 'Somebody Loves You'

Listen up ...

Past Tracks

Betty Who is a young pop singer/songwriter based in Boston these days, though you'll occasionally hear vocal hints of her youth down under in Sydney. A day-glo chorus, busy drum fills, and keyboards that sparkle and blast: "Somebody Loves You" is one of the best pop tunes I've heard in a long time. Sweetness incarnate, in terms of lyrics. And exactly the type of hooks that force you to play it again and again. Right now, you can grab a copy from Betty's Soundcloud page. That is, until she's been gobbled up by some possessive major label that will put a high price on it on iTunes.
