Don't Make Me Hate You, Goldfrapp

I'm hearing Goldfrapp everywhere I turn.

(By the way, their Web site is a piece of Flash shit. Oops, sorry, I meant shite. No, I don't want to chase the goddamn flies, I just want to hear the damn songs.)

I don't even have the CD yet (yes, I still buy CDs), but at this rate, I won't have to.

Maybe it's one of those Moby things, where all the songs on the album have been licensed for use in commercials.

Actually, until I checked the wikipedia entry, I thought 'Ooh La La' and 'Strict Machine' were the same song ('Strict Machine' is currently being used in the commercials for Verizon Wireless's Chocolate phone-thing, and F/X Network's Nip/Tuck.)

Both songs feel like mashups of Norman Greenbaum's 'Spirit in the Sky' and Donna Summer's 'I Feel Love,' with the ratios tweaked just slightly.

Between shag haircuts for guys and this, it's safe to say that everything ever worth doing has been done -- we're now on infinite repeat.
