This weekend, I finally converted the husband into a Justin Timberlake fan. I kept telling him about how my new favorite song is Sexy Back, from Timberlake's new album Future Sex/Love Sounds. The song is raunchy as hell, like a mix between Nine Inch Nails and techno rave music, but it's catchy, and I love it.
So it was playing on Z100 this weekend, and when the song came on I told my husband, "Listen to this," as I turned up the volume, "THIS, is Sexy Back."
He listened to it a little bit and said, "This is dumb, it's just the same tune over and over again. Who is this guy?"
I told him it was Justin Timberlake, and he replied, "Oh that dumb wuss from that boy band? He's so dumb."
"Maybe. But he's grown up now, and he's grown a beard to look older, " I said, "and he's going out with Cameron Diaz."
"Oh that girl from Something About Mary?" he asked.
"Yes," I told him. What was it about dating Cameron Diaz that suddenly made JT look like a man in my husband's eyes? And made him realize that this "wuss" probably can sing after all?
Anyway, the husband was hooked on this song. Five minutes after the song was over and the station was playing that stupid "Buttons" song by the Pussycat Dolls for the umpteenth time, my husband couldn't get that tune or the phrase "Getch yo sexy on," out of his head. He had to hear it again, as did I. And for some strange cosmic reason, Z100 was playing this song at least five times an hour.
So the entire weekend, we've been listening to this song whenever we've been in the car. And we still haven't gotten sick of it. Even though the album won't be released until September, I was hoping I could download the mp3 for this song from the net. I tried all the usual suspects, iTunes, allofmp3.com, and Cool Toad, but no one has this song. (Actually, Cool Toad had one copy, but it was a horribly botched copy, don't bother downloading that.) I did a Google search for the Sexy Back mp3 and keep getting redirected to porn sites. Porn sites where you get to listen to the actual song but porn pop-up ads flash all over your computer screen. Not really what I was looking for there. If anyone out there knows where to get a good copy of this mp3, preferably a legal way, without getting flooded with porn on your computer, please let me know.
