Madge pissed off Girls Gone Wild scumtard Joe Francis with the title of her latest - and that isn't the only admirable thing about this return to the straight-ahead club trance she holds dear. Sure, as wildness goes it's closer to Parks and Recreation's Leslie Knope than Britney Spears, but the track (by Italian house producer Benny Benassi) smartly inverts the overpowering apocalypse pump of "Till the World Ends" into Euro-spa electro burble that's buoyant and warm-rinse soothing. It's the sound of a woman who hits the dancefloor for restoration more than craziness. After the "Mickey"-recalling head-scratcher of "Give Me All Your Luvin'," it's nice to see her get back into the groove.

    “Stillness Is the Move”

    Dirty Projectors | 2009

    A Wim Wenders film and a rapper inspired the Dirty Projectors duo David Longstreth and Amber Coffmanto write "sort of a love song." "We rented the movie Wings of Desire from Dave's brother's recommendation, and he had me go through it and just write down some things that I found interesting, and they made it into the song," Coffman said. As for the hip-hop connection, Longstreth explained, "The beat is based on T-Pain. We commissioned a radio mix of the song by the guy who mixes all of Timbaland's records, but the mix we made sounded way better, so we didn't use it."
