Song of the Moment: “Up N’ Down”
May 9, 2011 § 1 Comment
If you follow this blog, it should come as no surprise that I am a HUGE Britney Spears fan. I listen to all of her albums religiously, and there are always certain songs that are on constant rotation. This time, the chosen song is off the pop star’s current album Femme Fatale. The deluxe edition track, titled “Up N’ Down”, is steadily becoming one of my favorite songs of the moment! Every year there are a handful of songs that I normally choose as “Songs of the Summer”, and this bumping dance track is definitely holding on strong.
“Up N’ Down” is so incredibly catchy; it makes you want to give it your all on the dancefloor. The track opens with some intense 90’s-feeling techno chords which completely electrifies the body & soul, gearing it up to fist pump, shake your booty, break dance, etc. The lyrics, while a bit cheesy (“I know you want me like kids want candy”), are effective, taunting, to the point, and seductive in a way that only Britney Spears could master. Combine that with a great techno-driven rhythm, and you have a perfect Pop formula for a hit. In short, it’s a freaking SOLID dance-pop track. Why it didn’t make the official Femme Fatale album beats me. But look out for “Up n’ Down” in the upcoming summer months, it’ll become your new go-to party song!
