Listening Post


I'll probably catch a certain amount of crap for posting a song like this, but so be it.

Back in the 90s, cute-as-a-button Swedish singer Robyn had a hit single with Show Me Love, which was pretty much the best song Britney Spears never recorded. She vanished from the world's radar for quite some time after that, seemingly content to become just another one-hit wonder. But a couple of years back, she emerged on the scene again -- this time having re-invented herself as a kind of thunderous techno-dance queen. The result was at the very least interesting; her cool-as-hell cover of the Teddybears' Cobrastyle alone was worth the price of admission.

Well, her new album is called Body Talk Pt 2, and while she's not exactly breaking new ground, what she does she does very, very well. The sonic boom bass drum-line on this song, by itself, is enough to at least make you sit up and take notice.

Here's Robyn's Include Me Out.

Why do you think anyone would give you shit for posting the "auto-tune the 90's out-of-date Moby-techno Swede ... with a nappy-ass bass line" song? Really, I think your readers are a bit more mature than that, don't you?

Obviously. Douche-jockey.

I vaguely remembered this post and then she was on SNL this week (12/2011), singing "Call Your Girlfriend." As an aging disco roue, but I enjoyed it.
