Christina Aguilera Pushes The Pram

Maura / January 23, 2009

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.
