Wind It Up by Gwen Stefani, the first single off upcoming album The Sweet Escape
I heard the debut of Gwen's single on the radio while driving to work. The radio! When did top 40 radio last hold me captive?
Unlike in a certain Christina's autumn hit, the samples in "Wind It Up" - magnificently recontextualized yet still tinged with nostalgia - actually go somewhere.
This song lifts me up.
