Yet there's a final bow at the latter style, from the second single, "I Surrender (To The Spirit Of The Night)", whose guitars and keyboards, thumping drums, and rhythm mimic "Touch Me". I can imagine that this or the "Touch me" song were candidates for Foxy's breakout single and "I Surrender" lost the coin toss. There's still a lot of energy in this number though.
"I Promise You" demonstrates Foxy's shift to really skippy bubblegum pop and not necessarily the S-A-W type, although she does dip her toe in that on one song. Lovell and Power's production is just as infectious and the chorus has a tempo and intensity to match.
Then comes "Naughty Girls (Need Love Too), her second big hit in the US--where she dips her toe in the 80's hip-hop of Full Force, who helped out Lisa Lisa and Cult Jam. She would do some more of this in I Wanna Have Some Fun.
"True Devotion" sports the same synths and haunting atmospheric sounds as the Cars' "Drive", and I often compare the two. There's a cogent comparison in this line: "Yesterday's dreams like old magazines/they lie beside the bed." She can handle ballads well enough, with the limited depth of her voice.
Whether one will like her slowed down version of the Stones' "I Can't Get No Satisfaction", with backing soulful vocals and some grinding guitars and funky synths will depend on if one is a Stones fan first.Read more ›
