The sequence of my indoctrination into Church of Justin Timberlake.
First, all Christmas vacation have PaxilBack on your mind.
(thanks to Rebecca, who showed me it first).
I ended up downloading from iTunes last night the entire album- Lovesounds- , and watched, as I do in most of my roundabout way, the “Making of SexyBack.” So, still haven’t seen the video though I’ve seen the entire spinning culture surrounding it! Here, finally, is the SexyBack video:
For me, he was never on the radar until this video, where he totally can dance. Really sounds more like M.Jackson here.
Then, with “Rock Your Body”, I couldn’t believe how fly he was. All the good bits of Michael Jackson, basically.
Speaking of chanbelling, he’s totally Stevie Wonder here: Senorita.
Now, with SexyBack, etc. it’s confirmed. Several good songs on the lovesounds album- and it reminds me, strangely, of Earth Wind & Fire. Ah, Justin. You’re a god. Friend Miranda quoting someone she couldn’t remember: “He’s a soprano who never lets you forget he’s masculine”. In the “making of sexyback” he says something along the lines of- wanting to not do what people expect, but push them farther, do different things, try different things, shake it up. Bravo!
