So one day, I stumbled into YouTube to watch Robyn perform various versions of my favorite songs off Body Talk – sometimes watching the same video a few times without realizing that I hadn’t managed to click on a different one yet. No matter. She sings with the same inflections, does the same wicked-cool 80’s head toss back with straight arm flings, shows the same facial expressions in each live performance and I loved every second.
She’s what all Pop Stars used to be before the Great Corruption*: always singing live, well-rehearsed but not choreographed to the nano-second with hip-hop-hips and kitten grabbing, dressed cool and not Sexy with a capital Sexy.
She just nails that shit and I’m so glad she’s out there, saving pop music.
*I’m not sure who started it, but you know what I’m talking about. Aguleira, Spears and the ilk.
