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.
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
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?
