With it being CMJ week here in NYC, there's an overabundance of extremely awesome music to see and hear over the next few days. So what better way to celebrate that, er well...step away from all the cool, than by letting you know which songs I have been losing myself in. And by losing myself, I mean "hey back off me, I'm so overwhelmed and just need some ridiculously awfully awesome trashy pop bangers to cleanse my mind". Yep, we're going there. This is the point in which I relinquish all credibility. Not that I ever had any, eh?
Go for it. Laugh at me for these selections, but here within, I give my reasoning as to why I'mm'a repeat these over and over and over again. So hushies, and pay attention to why these ladies bring out my inner bad (taste) grrrrrll.
mp3: Mya - Its My Birthday
Stop what you're doing and think back to a time when Mya was really relevant. Oh right. She wasn't. Some are saying this song is a tragedy and she should fade back into obscurity. I say turn this heat up to 11 and shout out the zodiac signs over this dark thumping beat that sounds like it's a lost cut stolen from Xtina's Bionic recordings. In others words...it's not love...oh baby, it's LUST.
mp3: Nicole Scherzinger - Poison
What sort of suckery is this? Well, it's not. That's what. Thanks to the "oh him again?" production panderings of RedOne, this is the penultimate trashy banger, and I love every second of it. I mean, these lyrics "that bad girl power I got // I'll abuse it tonight // cause tonight // got poison on my mind" is enough to send me in a frenzied fit each and every time. I have never wanted to be a gogo dancer harder than in every moment whilst this plays.
mp3: Kelly Rowland - We Can Do It
It was either this or Cascada's Night Nurse...so there you have it.
