The Earworm: Borgeous – “Invincible”

How I Got Earwormed: The hook. The HOOK. My God, the hook. For a hot second, it’s just a hook, you know? And not even that “good” of one. It’s a series of the same eighth and sixteenth notes with a few offbeats thrown in there to make it sound like it’s skipping along…until the end of the phrase. The breakdown at the end is simple, but it’s a perfect setup for another iteration of the hook. Now add a synth line that’s one step off from overpowering, and the vocals of Julia Michaels, and you have all the makings of a prog house earworm.
