Kelis - 'Acapella'
Now here's an irony: here's a song about being swept up in a new love, and transformed by the giddy thrill to such a degree that everything that happened before seems drab and grey by comparison. It's also a song which is itself so sparkling and loveable as to make other pop songs seem un-inspired and un-glorious, even the really good ones.
It is, therefore, a song which could very easily create the very same feelings about itself that it is trying to describe in song form. A clash of subject and effect which, if it fell into the wrong hands, could spell the end of reality as we know and breathe it.
Or it could just be a nice song to have in your mind as you go about your business.
(Here's the video. It's feathery.)
Just LISTEN to it though! It would be enough that it has a melody which leaps from skyhook to treetop to enormous trapeze without missing its grip for a second. It would be enough that this melody has been launched from a throat of pure devotion, and is borne aloft by a host of angelic harmonies. Hell, it would even be enough that this manages to make gratitude sound like the most ecstatic pleasure imaginable.
But to do all this while summoning the ghosts of Donna Summer and her astonishing synth-disco amazingness from the '70s - without 'I Feel Love' in its DNA, 'Acapella' would be, well, a capella - just puts the shine on the cherry on the other cherry on the icing on the cake. And it's a cherry cake.
