LEAH KATE, “10 Things I Hate About You”
What I wrote about Leah Kate’s single “Shit Show” last Fall seems to be taking off even more as the social media star has a gem with “10 Things I Hate About You”. Taking its cues from Gayle’s “abcdefu”, Avril Lavigne, Cyndi Lauper, and perhaps even the same-titled movie, “10 Things” is a universal theme song for post-relationship blahs with a bit of a twist at the end. I really enjoy the energy in this song through Leah Kate’s vocal and the harmonies, and like the L.A.-based singer/songwriter’s past releases, “10 Things” stays with you as a fun one that’s not grating or annoying. “10 Things” will stand the test of time and is a song that would provide a blast in Top 40 radio playlists.
