ok grandma let's get you back to bed

I adore Bonnie, and have been a diehard fan of hers forever, but I think one of the biggest things holding her back is constantly comparing herself to her peers. She had a record deal, then lost it. S

Ok, so I'm adding ALL the songs registered on Bonnie's ASCAP/BMI to the list because I get the impression y'all really like the encyclopedic information regarding song credits and release dates and al

Sad that the leaks stopped. Looks like we'll never get Forever 21. I'd just like to thank the PHF member who leaked Hot City, it might be my favorite track from the Epic Sessions.

This really feels like her XCX World era, with Forever 21, a fan favourite, remaining unleaked, just like Taxi did for a long while :yeah:

I love that y'all forgot about Right Now and Hit Me Up. 

Well I keep forgetting about them because apparently the Right Now circulating is not THE Right Now she performed, so :morning: 

And with Hit Me Up, not the biggest fan of it tbh, though it would be cool to have more Bonnie.

But if you'd ask me which song I'd prefer to get in full first, I would always say Forever 21 :yeah:

Well... it was fun well it lasted y'all. 😭 Never thought I'd see so many people so excited about Bonnie again. Here's hoping we get Forever 21 (and Right Now / Hit Me Up) someday.

Yo, she has us wrapped around her finger :yeah: It would be great if she used the momentum of the leaks to make some appearance in her socials or anything

I completely agree! It's somewhat reassuring that she's had a number of the leaks pulled down from YouTube (S.LA.Y., Everything But You) so here's hoping that she actually comes through and releases something this time. I'd be thrilled with another 4 or 5 track EP with the final, polished tracks. Something like...

  1. S.L.A.Y.
  2. Forever 21
  3. Hot City
  4. Everything But You
  5. Rewind Your Heart

Exactly! From those sessions, she literally has material to drop 4 EPs like that. One each 6 months. And there she is, a regularly-releasing artist delivering bops every single time :yeah: Who knows what's gonna happen with these songs tbh

i feel like we're done with epic leaks :yeah: 

On the other hand can we appreciate how good her 2011-2012 leaks are? literally a pop perfections. I Dare You sounds like a total smash. Rules of Attraction is also a masterpiece :yeah:

Mine is as follows:

With Forever 21 as track 3, which remains unleaked. When/if it leaks, I'll add it. I think there's a great story going from Hot City until Rewind Your Heart, arranged that way:

Tracks 1 (American Girl) and 2 (S.L.A.Y.) both kinda set the mood for the record, and track 3 (Forever 21) in an extent as well: this thing of having fun, being young, falling in love, feeling powerful, being the best you can and live your life. Such a mood. Then, you hang out with friends (Hot City) and meet your friend Jenny's boyfriend, who you get a crush on (Jenny's Got a Boyfriend), but as it's an infatuation that will not end well, you decide not to make a move, as much as you want to (I Wanna Fucking Call You). The feeling is not gone, and you kinda give in to it, so things begin to flow between you and Jenny's boyfriend (Electric Heaven), but then reality hits after something goes wrong as he leaves (Everything But You) and the relationship eventually ends (Somebody's Gonna Get Hurt). After the downfall of the relationship, you'd wish everything was like the now-gone good moments (Rewind Your Heart), but as it's not gonna happen, you just step away and get to know more people, so you get to know this guy to have a more casual affair with, but it's fun (Unlock Your Love and, to an extent, Outlaw - in the frame of talking of a past exclusive formal relationship and now you have the complete freedom to meet anyone you want), in the process of forgetting how the last relationship went and you've moved on (Waking Up Diagonal). The last track (Don't Get Mad, Get Famous) felt good as a closing song as it takes again the same powerful streak of the first three songs, so the story takes a sort of cycle-closing ending.

P.S. I ended up writing everything as if you are Bonnie but it's just how I'd explain her how I pictured the album's plot if it was ordered this way. // I think that, with this story, Sexin U could fit between Unlock Your Love and Outlaw, but that will keep making the album longer than I want it to be so I'll leave it for an Epic additional EP.

Of course I have more Bonnie albums, but this is the one I'm proud of the most, and also the one I love the most, if it's not evident enough :cackle: the other one I really like is the one I call Wild at Heart, from the 2014-16 sessions including the Bombastic EP. I'm very OCD with eras so that's why I parted her discography into 12-14 track albums, leaving out those I'm not too fond of. I'm still working on an Epic companion EP, with some outtakes from the main album.

I absolutely LOVE how creative this is! You created an entire story with your track list and it flows so smoothly, not only lyrically but sonically as well. Very impressive!

From those sessions, I only really really like The Rules of Attraction, Surrender and Earthquake. The rest are good, but not very much my favourite Bonnie material tbh.

Awww thanks bestie! That's what Bonnie's music makes me do :cackle: the pieces are right there, and I'm pretty sure more than one storyline can be made. She just has to grab them, arrange them and release them :yeah:
