Song Stuck In My Head: Alphabeat Have Put A 'Spell' On Me

"The Spell" - Alphabeat (2009) 

Once again the hazard of being a music blogger and a student has crept up and bit me hard in my tushy, as I must apologize to Alphabeat, for the sheer fact that I surpassed gracing my ears with their dazzling song, "The Spell". The pop sextet from Denmark managed to effortlessly slam a jam on me, as well as give me one of my new favorite tracks that emerged out of this quite mediocre year of music. Pop songs, in my opinion, should just latch onto you on arrival, right from the opening splash of sound, and this song does just that. While a lot of people are channeling the neon 80's, Alphabeat are tackling on the frosted glitter and grime of the 90's with this groover that recalls late 90's pop princesses, Ce Ce Peniston, La Bouche and Black Box all in one crafted package. The song samples has a heavy sample from Danish group, Cut n' Move's 1991 single, "Get Serious" which is why it sounds so divinely pulsating and addictive. A spoonful of sugar that will definitely help the medicine go down.
