Cascada is back!

A couple of days ago I wrote a post about Havana Brown, calling her the Australian Cascada. Well, the real deal is back with a new single to put the pretenders in check! Or at least try to. My love/hate relationship with the German trio isn't exactly a secret. They have churned out some truly rancid shit over the years but I love Natalie's child-bearing hips and they occasionally get it oh so right. See "Evacuate The Dancefloor" and "Pyromania". While I don't think "San Francisco" is quite in that league, it is a nice change of pace for the group. The third single from their soon-to-be-released 4th studio album (second if you overlook the scrapped trainwreck that was "Night Nurse"), Cascada's ode to the gayest city in the world is a cheerfully inoffensive pop jam that takes the bpm down a couple of notches. I like the inane chorus and think there's something admirably 90s about the whole project. The video is also typically cheesy Cascada fare that finds Natalie channelling her inner hippy. That fabulous bitch has always looked like her pill just kicked in, so it's not much of a stretch. But that fringed leather jacket was always a no. Oh and for the record, Havana does it better.

You must be crazy if you think Havana! is better than Cascada I saw this girl and I must say that I'm not impress by her. I love Cascada because they take risk and I as a fan appreciated that. Most artist are scare of that, but not them.

I read Robbie's post about that today on Idolator today but I honestly don't hear it. Maybe Natalie's killer baps are blinding me to her thievery!

What's dat, Cunnilingus Gurrls from Krapola Perry that stole from Madonna's Holiday and Britney 'walk this way' Spear's Trouble?

I think Cascada should be proud - if nothing else, there's finally something thin about her...her VOICE!

Is the line "wake me up in San Fran" about her well-known fondness for arranging kidnap sex on the internet?

Honestly, some people are so tacky.

when she talks about going to the Hungry Eye on Broadway she's referencing a super sketchy strip club that specializes in large black women -- lyric of the year!
