I already spoiled the song that has actually been stuck in my head this past week when I posted about Babs singing 'My Man' so this isn't a genuine Stuck-In-My-Head Sunday post. This past week Britney Spears' new album--the TERRIBLY titled Femme Fatale--leaked. I had no desire to listen to this album as I completely loathe the lead single 'Hold it Against Me'. While I like the second single 'Till the World Ends' I still had no interest whatsoever. A co-worker assured me that the album is actually really good mindless dance-pop perfection and that I should take a chance on it. I did, and I'm very happy I did! It really is perfectly constructed dance-pop. Despite Britney's albums being more about the producers than the product I think that Dr. Luke, Max Martin, and all of her other producers really show their talent for putting together a great pop song. The whole album will make great drunk-dancing music, but there's only a few songs I see myself adding to a rotation on my iPod. Most of all I really love the song 'I Wanna Go' and its Euro-trash whistling. It's fun and classic Britney in the whiny chorus that requires very little from her vocal chords, and I hope you'll all have a listen even if you detest pop music (which is a damn shame, if true):
Girl needs a long break from the music scene though. She's cray-cray 100%.
