The full-length debut from model-actress-singer Sky Ferreira sounds like a soundtrack for the Breakfast Club remake playing in her head. Ferreira airlifts her electropop hooks straight from the Eighties, her yelping, surly vocals frosted with thick production and her constant synths reflecting every Tears for Fears anthem ever blasted during a coastal joyride. Some of the modern EDM heaviness of Icona Pop and Sleigh Bells kicks in latently, but the 21-year-old's iciness ultimately fails to charm. Although, between its well-placed chimes and the propulsive hook about ephemeral love, "24 Hours" sounds like the Simple Minds song you didn't know you wanted to hear.

    “Whoomp! (There It Is)”

    Tag Team | 1993

    Cecil Glenn — a.k.a., "D.C." — was a cook at Magic City, a nude dance club in Atlanta, when he first heard women shout "Whoomp — there it is!" Inspired by the party chant, he and partner Steve "Roll'n" Gibson wrote a song around it. Undaunted by label rejections, they borrowed $2,500 from Glenn's parents and pressed 800 singles, which quickly sold out in the Atlanta area. A record deal came soon after. Glenn said the song was meant for positive partying. "If you're going to say 'Whoomp there it is,' and you're doing something negative, we'd rather it not have come out of your mouth."
