USA Today is reporting that Lorde's "Royals" has been pulled from rotation in San Francisco for the duration of the World Series.
Even though Lorde sings, “We’ll never be royals….” in the chorus of her hit Royals song, two San Francisco radio stations have banned the song from their airwaves – at least while their town’s beloved San Francisco Giants are taking on the Kansas City Royals in the World Series.

It's all about women in the Billboard Hot 100's top five again, as Meghan Trainor's "All About That Bass" heads up an all-female top five for a second straight week. [...] Below "Bass," Taylor Swift's former two-week No. 1 "Shake It Off" holds at No. 2 for a second week; Nicki Minaj's "Anaconda" stays at No. 3 for a third week after reaching No. 2; Iggy Azalea's "Black Widow," featuring Rita Ora, rises to a new high (5-4); and Minaj's "Bang Bang," with Jessie J and Ariana Grande, backtracks to No. 5 from its No. 4 peak.

One of Calgary's radio stations is going to only play two minutes of songs -- to try and keep people engaged and get with the times.
"As we look to people’s changing habits and changing attention spans and watch people on their iPod listening to half a song and forwarding on to the next one we sort of came to the conclusion that maybe it was time to rethink why songs are the way they were." The format, called QuickHitz, uses songs provided by Vancouver-based SparkNet Communications.

Wired looks at why songs on the radio are all around the same length:
What about now? Since 1990, it seems that the average song length has sort of stabilized around 250 seconds (over 4 minutes). Maybe that’s because humans prefer 4 minute songs. Clearly there is no technological limit to song length anymore, right?

Amanda Dobbins, writing for Vulture:
This is usually when someone raises his hand and is like, “Oh, I’ve really been enjoying the new Spoon single, that’s my Song of Summer.” Which ... no. Let’s be clear about how this works: There is no such thing as a “personal” song of summer. We do not anoint multiple songs of summer. There can only be one; the Song of Summer, by its very definition, is a consensus choice. It is the song that wrecks wedding dance floors. It is the song that you and your mother begrudgingly agree on (even though your mom has no idea what rhymes with “hug me” and won't stop yelling it in public.) It does not necessarily have to hit No. 1 on the charts, but it should...

You get a podcast, you get a podcast, everyone gets a podcast!

If you're looking for something to listen to today, and need a little break from music, I'd like to recommend this episode of the Debug podcast. The topic is "Sexism in Tech" and I'm totally crossing the streams for my love of technology with my "music blog" or whatever we call this site these days. That said: the conversation and topic absolutely has applications to our music world and how macro and micro aggressions play a huge role in all of our lives.

Head to BBC Radio 1 to hear The 1975 discuss their story.
In this Radio 1 Story, for the first time, all four members of the band give their viewpoint on The 1975's career. From meeting at school as 13 and 14 year olds, to playing their first gigs, evolving their sound and song writing, forming their identity as The 1975, getting their first air play on Radio 1... and then adjusting to a whole load of success.
