** My nomination for the most generic and uninteresting song of the year. So boring and lifeless, hardly anything to enjoy here. Honestly sounds like a Taio Cruz or Timomatic song. The vocals are good but not enough to make it any more interesting. Definitely not worthy of it's top 3 position. So glad it deservedly flopped Last edited: 23/08/2013 02:31
*** Haha, DNA Songs must be really moving up in the world. To their credit, this doesn't sound like their brand of genericism, but instead a more international one. It would not shock me if the success of this release would give them the idea to further pursue this sound.
There is something instantly familiar in the chorus here. I feel as though I've heard nearly the exact thing before but I just can't seem to nail it down. The closest thing that I can bring to mind would be Pitbull's "Rain Over Me". Even some of the hooks are shared between the two!
I'm inclined to dislike this because the notion of having more than the 1 expected hyperactive dance mess in the top 10 frustrates me; I am not hungry for the return of 2010 homogeneity. But I do have to commend this somewhat. Unlike say Timomatic's "Parachute" which is all over the shop because of the desire to ensure a hook every 6 seconds, this at least feels more natural. Ricky is nearly reduced of any charisma here, but the product is at least smooth and natural. I can nearly pass it for that. 3.25
**** Ich finde es gut das er einfach das macht was er will und natürlich was er kann^^ er hat sich definitiv nicht von seinem bekannten Style wegbewegt...ich finde es eine Super neue Nummer von ihm, die sehr schnell ins Ohr geht.
Bin übrigens überrascht dass es in Australien bis auf die 3 kam^^ bin aber froh das er wenigstens dirt den Erfolg hat...4.5*
