Christina Aguilera Pushes The Pram

Jan 23rd, 2009 // 4 Comments

Somehow I missed the news that Christina Aguilera was going to sing a track for the comic book tie-in The Spirit, although that could be because the film itself barely blipped onto my radar. Speaking of blips, “Falling In Love Again (Can’t Help It)” is an eight-minute plugged-in reworking of the Frederik Hollander/Sammy Lerner song first brought to prominence by Marlene Dietrich, and subsequently covered by lots of other acts; Aguilera’s version has a musical bed that echoes the moody electro of Broadcast and Pram, and a remarkably restrained vocal take. Clip after the jump.

    Frank Miller is doubtless blaming the failure of that thing on everyone but himself.

    Along with the new material on her best of and now this, I really can’t wait for her next record.

    bryan ferry’s falling in love again, from 2000 or so, is still my favorite.

    “a remarkably restrained vocal take”

    I wrote something very similar about the song a while back. I love that this is the way of saying, “Thank heavens she didn’t over-sing this shit.”
