Grades: Crocodile Tears
Stop what you're doing. Really. This is special. After you listen to this song your life will forever be fragmented into two distinct segments. Life before Crocodile Tears and life post Crocodile Tears. You will mourn the fact that this song wasn't around for all your important life moments - your first kiss, your first breakup, your high school graduation. You will be reminding yourself for eternity that all those fleeting nostalgic flashes would have been amplified tenfold by this absolutely brilliant song.
So yes, get ready. This song is going to wrap itself into your ears and never let go. With the rubbery bass and rhythm sections of the burgeoning house resurgence and the smart topline of the most topshelf of pop tunes, this song isn't just going to be leading the Best of 2014 lists, but it will be topping your heart for the rest of your life - if you let it.
