SONGS IN MY "2007 HITS" IPOD PLAYLIST V


Amerie, "Crush"

I don't think it's a single, but I read somewhere that they might slap a "Genius Of Love" sample in the track when the album finally comes out in the U.S. (as if the song wasn't already an obvious pleasure), so let's enjoy this alternate dimension chart-topper while we can. The music reminds me of "Love Will Never Do (Without You)," Alfred of "Thieves Like Us," Rich of freestyle, and nobody's wrong. In the first verse, she dreams of licking your love off her fingertips and giving it to some other girl to taste, but after that attention grab she's locking you up and throwing away the key cuz "there's no one else but me and you." She's no skank, she's just setting the trap.

Have you heard the album yet?

A good half of it (haven't gotten around to downloading the songs I know are ballads aside from that one Tim F's raved about, "Paint Me Over"). I still find her very shrill, but I enjoy both the singles and a few other tracks.

Ha! I find Ciara shrill. I mean, there's grit and a bottom to Amerie that never fails her when things get soupy.

Oh I hear the "grit"
