Music recap: “Club Can’t Handle Me” might be the greatest dance song ever made

September 20, 2010 in Music

The angbox music recap looks at some recent songs that you may not have heard. In this edition: Flo Rida, Sara Bareilles, Katy Perry and Michelle Branch. What a combo!

One of the newest songs to hit the radio airwaves is Flo Rida’s (feat. David Guetta) Club Can’t Handle Me. It is, without a doubt, the catchiest dance/club song that I have ever heard in my entire life. Even more than the macarena!

If you haven’t heard it, check it out (sorry, the volume controls don’t quite work thanks to the YouTube embedding):

According to the Billboard 100, the song is currently sitting at number 13. Beaten by, of all things, Mike Posner’s Cooler Than Me which features the hit lyrics “You got designer shades to hide your face and you wear them around like you’re cooler than me.” I don’t get this song at all.

In other news, Sara Bareilles’ new album, Kaleidoscope Heart, has been out for a grand total of 10 days and debuted at #1 on the Billboard charts, beating out Eminem’s Recovery and Katy Perry’s Teenage Dream, among others. You’ve probably heard King of Anything, but Sara’s lesser known Uncharted is easily, EASILY, the best track on the album:

I have to also add that her first album Little Voice is one of the absolute best female pop albums I’ve heard. Every song on there is a veritable hit. Not so much with Kaleidoscope Heart, which feels like it has a different sound, a little jazzier but not quite as catchy. It’s still worth getting though.

This one’s over two months old, but I finally got around to listening to the Michelle Branch EP Everything Comes and Goes. It’s far more The Wreckers than Hotel Paper, but there’s shades of the younger, poppier Michelle Branch in the track Sooner or Later.

And finally, Katy Perry. I admit that I didn’t really care for California Gurls much – it seems like your average pop song honestly – but Teenage Dream (the song, not the album) deserves all of the airplay that it’s getting right now. It’s classic Katy Perry. I can’t say the same for the album, which lacks all of the catchiness and just general oomph that her first album had. The song Peacock is especially bad.
