Tasty Track of 2014 Number 5: Heartbreak Dream by Betty Who

The lead single from Betty Who's Slow Dancing EP, "Heartbreak Dream" is one of the best slices of 80 nostalgia in a year brimming with excellent homages to that decade. As expected, the song makes use of synthesizers and a good chorus, but what really works for it is the aching and expansive romantic atmosphere. Who can deliver a love-lorn lyric with skill, and her excellent taste helps make the song one of the best tracks this year. I hope she has more mainstream success soon.
