** The only good thing about this is that at the end of the rap, it sounds like Pitbull is requesting payment for his phoned in appearance, which amuses me. Otherwise this is a disgusting mess of a song that was already a disgrace to Australian music beforehand.
**** Das will nicht in meinen Kopf rein: Was haben die alle mit diesen Pitbull-Typen, der geht einfach nur noch kräftig auf die Eier! (Sorry für die Wortwahl!) Und wieso muss sie diesen Song nochmals veröffentlichen?
* This "remix" is actually weaker than the original. Way too try-hardish and for a dance song this is actually difficult to move to (not that I'm much of a dancer). The stuttering is overdone and the chorus is overemphasised so the breakdown seems like nothing. It sounds very disjointed with the Pitbull rap in between the verses, it actually would've done better if they stuck with the very generic method of inserting the rap after the 2nd verse/chorus. I could go on for a while, but if you really are desperate enough to listen to this song, go to the original please!
** Hätte ich doch nur mein spontanes Nickerchen durchgehalten, das ich mir nach 30 Sekunden des Songs auferlegt habe. Verpasst hätte ich nichts, bekommen hätte ich drei Minuten Entspannung. Immerhin: Pitbull stört hier nicht.
****** My biggest guilty pleasure this year and it is totally awesome, but in a very superficial way, although that has little to do with both Havana and Pitbull. It is RedOne who created this club monster and it is one of his best productions (most similar to Rain Over Me). The song also sounds incredibly fresh in a year dominated by Max Martin/Dr. Luke dance hits so I'm not surprised by it's success in the US. The beat is great, the structure is messy but it works. Compared to this the original sounds like a demo and I did moderately like the original.
