New Britney Spears songs

This has absolutely nothing to do with Hoboken, but it was a “slow news” Labor Day, so let’s give it a whirl anyway.

I have to say, I’ve never been a fan of Britney Spears (except when I saw her first video in that short school-girl skirt). She’s a nutty experiment totally waiting to implode. But that’s not my problem, really.

However, she’s all over the tabloids, gossip rags, and millions of websites.

They’ve apparently leaked some of her songs out on the web, and I have to tell you, while they’re not musical masterpieces, I’m kind of digging the Casio organ kind of sound to them. Maybe because I’m 1/2 a yard from being injected directly into The Matrix, who knows. I bet some fruity guy just made these songs on his iBook while drinking a Venti Chai Tea over at Starbucks. While most of you will probably (rightfully so) think this is utter garbage, I’m somehow getting a kick out of the minimalist sound to that first song. Because I’m crazy like that.

I was a big fan of that “Da Da Da” song (from Trio) that became popular from that Volkswagen commercial back in the 1997 (hold mouse over link to play YouTube video).

Conversely, the always hilarious The Superficial, says this about Britney’s new songs:

“…either way it’s bad. Like really really bad. Like so bad I thought it was a fake. I think they squeezed Britney until they got her voice as high up as it is, and then pulled some random people off the subway and made them backup singers.”

Here’s the song links (streaming files – as long as they last):

Cold As Fire
Gimme More
And a third song, which the site said this about: “Did she really put a fake phone conversation in there? Why yes, yes she did. I can’t believe this is actually her big comeback song. After listening to it I was expecting Ashton Kutcher to jump out of my closet and tell me I got Punk’d.

Does anyone care about this broad?

[quote comment=”42778″]It’s not just the VMA’s which lost their identity. Mtv as well. Justine Timberlake made the best comment all night that sums it up perfectly…

“play more videos”

This was a jab at both Mtv and VH-1 for abandoning what the forums were good at – music. I like shows and all, but music channels should be about music (i.e. videos). It’s understandable, and actually wise, that those channels broadened their brand equity by expending into shows = advertising dollars, which boost what they can do in building those brands. But that came at the cost of what made it good in the first place – the music. Now, it seems, 9 out of 10 times you turn the channel there’s some show on, whether it be Real World, Road Rules, Real World vs Road Rules, Real World/Road Rules The Gauntlet, Real World Keep’n it Real With the Road Rulers, Road Rules roll’n with the Real World, Road Rules of the Real World, (are you still reading this? get a life…) and lastly 20 years from now Real World vs Road Rules Retirement Bingo of Death. And of course, those stupid “NEXT” shows. Wish I could say NEXT to tv. Play more video’s daminant![/quote]

I love the fact that he said that after the “Hills” cast had presented him with the award. That was a low blow.

they abandoned video’s because the hip-hop and rap video’s cannot get past either the censors or the parents. that music culture is sexist, racist, promotes violence, drug/alcohol use and criminal behavior in general, not to mention that the languauge has to be bleeped there’s not much left to hear. it is so obvious that a multi billion dollar operation like MTV had to restructure their entire approach to broadcasting just to try to keep an audience. that kinda sums up that whole culture, no?

i don’t think real world or “next” are the worst of mtv. it’s the newer shows. last night during my 20 minutes of mtv torture of trying to watch the vma’s i saw a commercial for a new show with some chick called tila tequila that’s inviting 10 lesbians and 10 straight guys to live together in a house. also commercials for more shows that look like soaps in the style of the OC or laguna beach.. enough garbage already! i think they’re past the point of no return.. i can’t imagine them ditching all this stuff to actually start focusing on music again.
