Cansei de Ser Sexy
Cansei De Ser Sexy, which is Portuguese for "Tired of Being Sexy", is better known as CSS, and is now very well known as the band behind the "music is my boyfriend..." song from the new iPod Touch commercial. Having their song, actually entitled "Music Is My Hot, Hot Sex" and originally released in 2006, featured in the commercial has landed the single at #92 on Billboard's Pop 100 and the album at #19 on Billboard's Top Electronic Albums (as of 11/24/07). There is no doubt that it is a fun, easily danceable song, and worthy of the recognition even before it's cameo with the iPod Touch. The question is, what about the rest of the album? If you are into tongue-in-cheek lyrics and playful beats, you may very well enjoy what CSS has to offer. It reminds me quite a bit of Aqua's 1997 "Barbie Girl", although perhaps not quite as charming with songs like "Art Bitch" and "*uckoff Is Not The Only Thing You Have To Show". However, it all seems to be in a fun-loving spirit, so if you're looking for a couple of dance tracks you can impress your friends with for about another month, download a little CSS!
