Prince and Zooey Deschanel, “FALLINLOVE2NITE”, Reviewed

No

No

Zooey Deschanel always sounds like she has a gob of phlegm in her throat.  In some instances its sorta adorable and it can give her a real croony sorta 40s sound. When you attempt to funk her up it sounds like a nun sucking helium with a tone deaf ear.  Then there is Prince with a new mixing board, what happens next is a tune that we should never have found.

This song overly synthd and so 70’s in sound that I wanted to go watch Good Times after hearing it gives me a wtf moment like no other.  If can stop time and not consider it a horrible roller disco anthem and appreciate it on a simplistic level..I cant.  The lyrics are horrible, the chorus so redundant that you beg for it to end.  The overwhelming synth and electronic beat coupled with the absolute morphing of vocals are startling and not in a good way.

This all being said, its got a place.  A place in a retro playlist.  Zooey in the role of Kiki Dee or something and Prince with a helium tank up his ass create a faux spectacular.  I just really expected more.  The queen of quirk is a sore thumb in Princes show its an odd pairing that I would have expected something a bit more contagious from.

There are collaborations that simply cannot meet expectation.  Its just over done, over thumped and did I mention repetitious cuz its almost as if its stuck on constant repeat.

Letter Grade?  A D for disco is dead. Listen here
