2019 Top Five Music Tracks
The year's Top Tracks finds the #1 slot filled by Dos Equis' "Hit Single," a loving tribute to timeless summer jams and ‘80s’ MTV Spring Break live performances as Beacon Street Studios brings its musical chops to bear in tandem with Bonnie Tyler’s 1982 hit single “Total Eclipse of the Heart,” which is transformed into another kind of emotional ballad that's charmingly absurd. The adapted ballad tell us about the trials and tribulations of ordering Dos Equis and appetizers at an overly crowded bar.
Also in the 2019 Top Five mix are Apple AirPods' creatively inspired "Bounce," the offbeat humor of Bosch's "Llama Drama, the comedy of Jif's "Bunker" where armageddon takes a backseat to peanut butter, and an other worldly performance in Reebok's "Storm the Court."
Have a listen below to the fab five tracks that graced 2019.
