LISTEN HERE: MADONNA "HUNG UP" (RADIO EDIT)
Oh, my thoughts? I LOVE the ABBA sample and the whole instrumental (Mr. Lu Cont is a genius, that we already know). And her voice sounds fine too. But these lyrics are just so mediocre. Is her brain stuck in Children's Book writing mode? "Those who run seem to have all the fun, I'm caught up, I don't know what to doooo." Sigh. At this point in her career, having already made so many pointless party songs, couldn't she try and write something more substantial?
And although I think it is Madonna's right to rip-off Gwen (as Gwen has ripped off Madge plenty, the open to "Hung Up" is so "Tic Toc, Tic Toc" from "What Ya Waiting For It" that it makes me uncomfortable. Listen here if you are in denial...
LISTEN HERE: GWEN "WHAT YA WAITING (JACQUES LU CONT REMIX)
All that said, I'm definitely gonna be bangin' this in my car for a month or so till CONFESSIONS comes out. It's first single Madonna... we've all been here before.
