David Guetta, “Love Is Gone”

A late entry to the tournament, “Love Is Gone” achieved its berth because over the past four days it has become completely inescapable from New York’s summertime agora–it blared over the PA at Shea Stadium on Saturday, oozed out of the radio at a bodega later that day, and has seemingly been in permanent 6:50 a.m. rotation on our local top-40 station, as it’s been playing at the moment my alarm has gone off every morning since last week. And it’s easy to see why, as it brings together a Foreigner-ready chorus with an electro breakdown that will lure in the kiddies. Why no one has thought of that combination as generation-spanning radio gold before is beyond me, but don’t be surprised if you see David Cook try to pull off the same trick when his album’s about to come out.
