Song Stuck In My Head: So So Strict

Strict Machine - Goldfrapp (2003)

When you base a song off of the ideals of what Donna Summer's 1978 come-hither opus, "I Feel Love", you really can't make a mistake. In a possible attempt to liven things up, trance-hop group, Goldfrapp ditched the mysterious spy movie motif they expressed on their 2000 debut, Felt Mountain, and stirred some glitter into their sinister sound brew. 2003's Black Cherry was the finished product and it produced such edgy cuts like "Train" and "Crystalline Green", but the mother load was the stark, "Strict Machine". A track about love hurting, the good way. Crackling with techno pulses with Alison Goldfrapp's soft coo adding a sweet element to the bitter makeup of the music, "Strict Machine" is one of those songs that engulfs you thoroughly. Once played you'd think your environment was drenched in the strobe light, sweat, funk and throb of a vibrant dance club, and that is much welcomed.
