I have finally figured it out. I now know why I’m in love with Gwen Stefani’s What Are You Watching For. Of course I didn’t figure it out until I got hooked on Madonna’s Hung Up. What is the common key that is my Kryptonite? The answer is simple: a clock! Yes, the basic tick-tock of the clock pulls me in and drugs me while I enjoy their songs. It could be that they are both really great songs, or have an amazing backing track, but I think it’s the clock. It has to be.
At least I am getting hooked on a new song, rather than Lady Stefani’s who had released that single sometime in 2004. And, I must confess (because that’s the theme of this post), I listened to all of Madonna’s new record on the way into work today and I will listen to it on the way home because it’s just that good.
If you listen carefully you can hear the Music Fairy come and take my manhood away while I listen to Confessions once more. The Velvet Mafia must have some sort of stake in this too”
