I sort of felt left out of the cool blog group because I hadn't yet put this tune up. But I didn't really know what I wanted to say about it. So I gave it a few weeks and let it mill about on my iPod and played it out a few times.
This song has so much hype behind it that a whole festival got named after it in the EU. Its been in the play lists of the A list electro guys for about 9 months. It has everything a song needs, except soul. I listen to it and I feel about as excited as a dead man. Its formulaic to the Nth degree. Its even missing that super punchy clean sound that redeems so many of these chart topping floor fillers.
I don't think any one song has ever made me understand the hatred that one of my (to be unnamed) mentors had for Alice DeeJay's better off alone (spoken quietly to be the reason said man closed his record store). To see so many people so excited for something so plain, it just feels wrong.
*as a side note, as I was writing this listening to the tune at hand my girlfriend (who could take or leave dance music) said 'see baby thats a good song, its not boring' so I guess it has something...
