"Outta This World" = not terrible, but definitely bonus track material. I'm glad that Blackout
is pretty much exclusively uptempo tracks on the the standard edition (well, besides "Why Should I Be Sad"), it helps give it a cohesive feel.
"Up N Down" = this song did pretty well on my weekly chart right after FF
came out, it even spent a week at No. 1, but looking back, I don't think I'd consider it the best FF
bonus track (that title has to go to "He About To Lose Me"). still, this one is definitely catchy, and I really love the bridge: "I can almost feel my lace, slippin' off cause of the bass..."
"I Wanna Go" = "Hor-or-or you crazay-ay-ay, this too low-ow-ow, it's the best on Femme Fatale
...". seroiously, though, CRAZY! this has always been the album's obvious standout to me. loooooove it!
"Quicksand" = Circus
has a couple really great bonus tracks, and this is one of them! it was actually written by Lady Gaga, and it sounds a lot like her own "No Way" (which I slightly prefer to this), but both tracks are fab! not sure if I'd call this a "ballad", but that's getting nitpicky.
"Hot As Ice" = this one's fun, a bit silly...and a bit too high here.
"Girls And Boys" = I don't listen to this one too often (I think the version I have is pretty LQ)...but it's interesting. it reminds me a bit of "Breathe On Me", at least in the verses, but the chorus is...eh. it does have a pretty sexy vibe to it, but it's way too high here.
"Circus" = I think fans usually go a bit too crazy for this one, so I'm glad to see you didn't put it too high. the best part is definitely the pre-chorus: "I feel the adrenaline moving through my veins..."
"I've Just Begun (Having My Fun)" = eh...well, it looks like we at least agree that this is the weakest of the three "new" tracks on GH: MP
...but I wouldn't put it nearly this high.
"My Baby" = hold up...you like THIS, but not Taylor's "Never Grow Up"? I don't this this is quite as terrible as most fans make it out to be, there are worse moments on Circus
, but this is still waaayyyyy too high. the "I smell your breath, it makes me cry"
line always makes me smirk a bit.
"Hold It Against Me" = ouch, you really have it out for her popular singles, don't you? and the song with "the best pop chorus of all time" is only No. 62? what do the 61 other songs have that's better than "the best pop chorus of all time"...? I'm not saying I would rank this as high as Mr. Akini, I certainly wouldn't...but it's at least...Top 40-worthy.
"Don't Keep Me Waiting" = aw, I think Rockey is generally...always...just awful. this and "Rock Boy" are both among her all-time worst, IMO.
