Another great graduation song: “Those Were The Days” by duo @usMidnightKids with vocalist @JaredLeemusic

MIDNIGHT KIDS and JARED LEE, “Those Were The Days”

“Those Were The Days” is one of those poignant lyrical pop songs that can easily find its way into the dance genre with some remixes.  Over the last year or so, US duo Midnight Kids have played to both genres with their releases and the remixes that they have done, so with this strong original release, the marriage of the two comes as no surprise.  Midnight Kids are Dylan Lee (he’s one of two sons of Tommy Lee and Pamela Anderson) and Kyle Girard.  “Those Were The Days” is exceptionally radio friendly with loads of thanks to the gleaming vocal of Jared Lee (no relation to Dylan), who I’ve written about before and is also poised to break out because of it.  And it’s a great end of school/graduation song as well with its uplifting vibe which makes it okay to reminisce because memories help make us who we are.  Be sure to listen to this one this summer and I can only bet that remixes will put it onto the club charts too.

L.A.’s @JaredLeemusic returns with solid new emotionally-charged pop single “Professional Lovers”

JARED LEE, “Professional Lovers”

It’s been a long slice since you might have heard solo music from L.A. singer/songwriter Jared Lee.  Recognized unequivocally back in 2011 for “It’s Over (Goodbye)”, which cracked Adult Top 40 radio and was featured prominently in an episode of “American Idol”, Jared has mainly been honing his songwriting and production craft for established performers like Jordin Sparks, New Kids On The Block, and Jason Derulo, while also being one half of the duo 7EAST with Idol alumna Pia Toscano.  But he is also known in dance music circles for his work with Tiësto, Fedde LeGrand, Vicetone, and The Disco Fries among others.  “Professional Lovers” works well with a vested, soul-tinged performance and an emotionally-charged energy that will grab the ears of any pop listener and make them want more.  As audiences go looking often for great pop songs, there’s no reason why Jared Lee’s “Professional Lovers” can’t be played side by side the likes of Charlie Puth, Niall Horan or James Bay on the radio.  Remixes might also be worthwhile to nudge the dance community that already knows him.
