For once, we'll do what comes naturally

I thought it would be THE song of summer 2009, but 2010 works for me. The Gossip finally release the blazing Pop Goes The World as a single and video. A year on, the chorus of this song is still a pounding, zinging masterpiece.

The Gossip Pop Goes The World:



Note this tune was on my tops songs mix for 2009.

I'm perplexed. This single appears out of nowhere a year later?

I thought they gave up on this album after "Heavy Cross". I was surprised "Pop Goes The World" never even got a mention as a potential single even though we all knew it stood out, screaming to be one.

I don't think they ever stopped promoting this album in Europe, which seems more amenable to Beth. Also, they were championed by Rick Rubin, whose business power seems to be on the wane.

better late than never I say. I must confess I sort of forgot them (to an extent) and this has bought them screaming back into my memory!

I'll take summer of 2010 too; now, if they would only reschedule the tour date here in ATL they cancelled.

If La Roux's Bulletproof can jump into the US top 50 this week, anything is possible. I guess it just shows how slow pop music can be to translate to US sales in a down economy (it also doesn't help if people never pay for things).

Kudos to them for perservering. Beth Ditto is UNSTOPPABLE.

She is unstoppable except when canceling her whole US tour. I don't really buy the respiratory problem claim. But they are doing some Lilith Fair dates.

Bring it on! - Hope it does really well for them!
