All deserve the same respect if not more than the hits, but they can always bask in their critical acclaim. These are the most underrated songs of 2015…so far.

“Ghost Town” commences The Original High in danceable fashion, giving Lambert a catchy, modern sounding record. Compared to previous album openers, “Ghost Town” is a bit of a ‘...
