MuuMuse Approved Tracks for the Week of May 23, 2010
5. Christina Aguilera – Lift Me Up
While the Sia ballads on the album are the most masterful, this Linda Perry-penned torch track is a ballad for the ages (that may well go unappreciated).
4. Uffie – Pop The Glock
It’s not a new song by any means, but hearing it all over again after the album leak has reminded me why the chick Ke$ha jacked her swagga from is so, so much more fun. I’m always ready to Uff!
3. Christina Aguilera – Vanity
This song may feature more cocky boasts than my irony meter can handle (“Let us not forget who owns the throne”), but I’ll be damned if this deluded exercise in self-celebration isn’t deliciously sassy. If the shoe fits…wear it, bitch.
2. Benny Benassi – Spaceship (ft. Kelis, Apl.De.Ap, and Jean-Baptiste)
Benassi never fails, as with this “Rocket In The Sky”-esque stomping delight meant to set the dance floor ablaze. Deeply wish the Black Eyed Peas rap nonsense was out of the picture, though.
1. Alicia Keys – Un-Thinkable (I’m Ready)
Alicia coos across an absolutely luscious, slinky groove about getting it on. I die every time. So happy to hear about the baby in waiting…Congratulations!
