Single Reviews Released 11 May 2009

LONDON, UK (Top40 Charts/ by Jenny McCarthy - Staff Writer)

Eminem - We Made You:
Three things are always guaranteed on every Eminem album: Stark honesty, Dr. Dre's production, and a crass lead single. Eminem continues the tradition with the recent release of "We Made You," the official first single from Relapse. The lyrics are funny and the music is unique but awesome. It's a catchy single and I'm so excited to hear the rest of Relapse!

Alesha Dixon - Let's Get Excited:
Alesha Dixon's new song, "Let's Get Excited" is most definitely not doing what it says on the tin. It is a new style for her compared to her last songs "Breathe Slow" and "The Boy does Nothing." One thing it does have in common with the latter is that it gets extremely aggravating after a while. The single is padded out with meaningless sayings of "hey" and "one, two, three, fours"..

Asher Roth - I Love College: 'I Love College', Roth's first major release, is essentially an anthem written for, and about, the frat house lifestyle portrayed by the likes of Stifler and co. Celebrating the average student existence of drinking, smoking, sleeping during the day and "then doing it all again", 'I Love College' is sure to have wide-reaching appeal. This guy seems to be more a comedian - not a real rapper... he does parodies... and this song is a drinking anthem that should be at colleges everywhere!

Deadmau5 & Kaskade - I Remember: This is a state of dancefloor-only total excitement, which is scientifically designed to be reached via the simplest of possible means. And to give the whole thing even more clout, there's a video (available on Deadmau5's site), which, with the help of an amazingly charismatic performance from Stephen Graham, transforms a wafty chillout into a kind of rave call to arms.

Lightning Seeds - Ghosts: As if they've never been away, Lightning Seeds return with the upbeat, ethereal pop swagger of 'Ghosts', scheduled for release May 11, 2009 on Universal. Written and produced by Ian Broudie, this charming song immediately connects you to the band's legendary past while pointing effortlessly towards a bright future. Wrapped in melody and full of the kind of timeless emotional depth we've come to expect from him, 'Ghosts' is both uplifting and thought provoking. It's a beautiful single that strikes a warm fuzzy familiar chord while managing to reach a new musical maturity.

Lily Allen - Not Fair: In new country-music inspired song 'Not Fair', Lily is singing sweetly about 'spending ages giving head' which conveniently rhymes with 'lying in the wet patch on the bed.' As far as the single goes, it's passable fare, but more of a novelty record than something that stands alongside Lily's other songs. This which could give Victoria Wood a run for her money in comedy bad sex songs.
