It'll be interesting to see which artists choose to give their singles away via a free download. As for the music, has "Shaki" been listening to Annie? It sounds like Annie, but with the occasional tell-tale bleating. I love it. It's a literal howler with70's disco strings and BONKER lyrics...

A domesticated girl, that's all you ask of me
Darling it is no joke, this is lycanthropy
Moon’s awake now, with eyes wide open
My body is craving, so feed the hungry

...Starting to feel just a little abused
like a coffee machine in an office

It's a bit lame that this download for free thing is only avaliable in the US.
The song is great, catchier than the spanish version :D

Usually it's ME that's getting the raw deal with UK sites. Try MuuMuse on the blog roll to the right.

This seems so un-Shakira. I find myself liking the music yet being thrown off by the throaty vocal. Still, I give her credit for trying to progress.

She Wolf actually segued very nicely in my iTunes with Shalamar's "Make That Move"--2 songs of a similar cloth--especially the strings!

I like the song, however unexpected it might be. That cover though - it's almost like they've deliberately made her look like Britney which given she's on the same label is very odd!
