Why are there no bad songs on Fever.
I should clarify - by 'sophisticated' I didn't mean meaningful, deep or revealing. Certainly I didn't mean that 'serious' lyrics are the only kind that can be sophisticated. I meant song writing that is secure and not trying too hard, writers that know how to cleverly yet simply twist a phrase, lyrics that feel totally at home and at pace with the music.I think Golden was lyrically pretty solid. That's why Disco threw me a somewhat, as those lyrics could have been written by anyone. When you see the artist is the sole songwriter there's an expectation you're getting more than just a song - that it'll hold greater meaning or depth or reveal something about that person. You could argue disco music is fun and doesn't need any real meaning or depth but actually a lot of disco from the 70's did have underlining meaning or hold more weight in the lyrics than often people realised.
Give it to me says hi. Dancefloor is basic AF although not objectively bad.
More More More is my favourite album track on Fever...oopsh. It's so floaty and lush.
I am thankful that Light Years re-established her in her key markets, but outside of three out of the four singles, I don't find myself revisiting the album.Unfortunately not, there are plenty of people who think Light Years is her best work. It isn't bad by any means, but Fever is just much tighter and cooler.
Boy and Butterfly close out the deluxe on Spotify US, anyway. Such a rush!Those are the 2 I would have probably switched out with some of the B-sides. 'Boy' could have replaced Give It To Me. It has a similar 'electro' vibe about it but just works better for me. 'Tightrope', 'Baby' or 'Rendezvous' could have replaced Dancefloor.
