Watch Me Entertain Myself!

Sacha Guitry once said, "You can pretend to be serious, but you can't pretend to be witty." Oh yes, I'm the great pretender.

“4 Minutes”

I don’t know whether to like or dismiss the new song “4 Minutes” by Madonna with Justin Timberlake & Timbaland. The ticking clock start, similar to “Hung Up”, dismayed me. But then Timbaland’s funky horns and the beat come in, and I’m immediately hooked. And for the next 3+ minutes of the song’s running time, it’s a push-and-pull between like and dislike. On the one hand I admit I can’t stop my feet from tapping whenever I listen to the song. But the lyrics leave me scratching my head.

Anyway, you be the judge.

@JOEL PIERRE: My main beef against the song is its LYRICS, so I don't know how the album version will improve that, unless it's a totally different song altogether.

@ joel...

we have the same sentiment here...we're even debating our own interpretation with my fan friends...but i guess in the end we really don't have to dig into the lyrics...it's a feel-good song after all...

Maybe you don't, but in this case, I do. For me, incoherent lyrics do not make me feel good.
