First Impressions: Craig Makes A Familiar Sounding Song...Better

Friday, October 24, 2008

Mr. Sexy Pants, Craig David released a video for his new song, "Where's The Love" last week, but all the while I was thinking: "Where's the video for "Insomnia"?" "Insomnia" is the first single to be taken off of Craig David's retrospective Greatest Hits album and it took a little while for the song to make it's way to Leakville but it's finally arrived. The Jim Beanz produced track is probably the most infectious Craig dance track I've heard since, "6 Of 1 Thing" and it's pure fun...but, and there is a but, it sounds vaguely familiar. To a trained ear, "Insomnia" (especially in the chorus) sounds an awful lot like Ne-Yo's "Closer"...still, Craig has the better voice and it just makes me wonder...what if Craig sung "Closer"...and would've it be a hit? Well, whatever the case, it's catchy and it's Craig but still I was hoping for something bit on the original "oh, you could release this in the States and be awesome again" circuit.
