song of the week: ain't no other man

In my humble opinion, there have only been three truly great, truly timeless pop singles released this century that are guaranteed to go down in classic pop history.

Kylie Minogue's Can’t Get You Out of my Head, Beyonce's [feat. Jay Z] Crazy in Love, and my song of the week, after weeks of compulsive tail-shaking, Christina Aguilera's Ain’t No Other Man.

These are three of the best love songs ever written and anything but disposable pop. Kylie's heartbreaking crush, Beyonce's best sex, Christina's butterfly-filled stomach. Like it's two big sisters, Ain't No Other Man is sheer genius.

The better-than-Britney blonde-bombshell is back on form.

Why? A nifty cheeky little brass ditty, that amazingly clean, bold, saucy voice punctuated by excellent pop production, a kicking drum beat, a funky breakdown, a beautifully blended sample from Luis Aviles & The Latin Blues Band - D-do your thang indeed, and fantastically cheesey, blissed-out lurve lyrics.

Raise a glass to pop's bit on the side and worship at her painted toenails - she’s got soul, she’s got class, she’s got style, she’s badass x
