Nothin' On You
What is the song of the summer as of today, the hottest and sunniest day this year in Ireland or Britain? Well, Eyewear isn't about to name check some cool indie band, or American folk trio, or other retro throwback (80s, 60s, 70s, anyone?). No, it's by B.o.B. ft. Bruno Mars and it is called 'Nothin' On You' and it is an effortlessly lovely and catchy love song with teeth, featuring rap and a yearning performance as sweet as mid-career Michael Jackson. Try to get this one out of your bean this June-August. You can swim on this song. Meanwhile, Gabriella Cilmi's 'Hearts Don't Lie' is also a hum-dinger if a little Gloria Gaynor.
