Song: The Funeral
Location: London, United Kingdom
Release date: March, 2022
Comment: I don’t know much about British artist YUNGBLUD. In fact, when I started hearing his name here and there, I thought he was just another rapper, until I heard his song mars and realized how wrong I was. I know he’s massively popular these days but that should not distract you from the fact that he’s actually good at what he does. Exhibit A is one of his latest singles, The Funeral, which is so catchy I just cannot get enough of it. Drawing heavily, in my opinion, from Billy Idol‘s Dancing With Myself, this 1980s-infused track got a really memorable chorus. The music video, which you can watch below, features fun cameos from Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne.

I’ve seen a number of songs and collaborations by YUNGBLUD on the Billboard Alternative Airplay charts over the past year or so, but always wrote him off as an overly-dramatic artist. But “Funeral” is undeniably catchy, and you’re right that it seems to channel Billy Idol’s “Dancing With Myself”.
Yeah, I think you see his moniker and you immediately think it is just another generic pop artist. Glad you liked the song!
