Abercrombie's latest Back to School (July) campaign has finally begun and with it comes a new playlist of course. So far I have almost all of the songs, but not all, and not any from Hollister or any other stores, just A&F.
Abercrombie & Fitch is making a bit of a drastic change, changing layouts on their sites and even changing their slogan to 'SCREEN TEST' for the moment (see their Facebook profile). Unfortunately, they have not updated any of the songs on their sites, but I'm sure they will soon.
I spent a few hours and listened to some of the spring 2010 playlist for Abercrombie & Fitch. Here are 10 random song reviews.
Lady GaGa - 'Bad Romance' (Bimbo Jones Radio Mix)
I am not much of a Lady GaGa fan. In fact most of the time I prefer dance remixes and this is no exception. This is way better than the original version, which hurts my ears every time. It finally sounds like it should!
Billie Myers - 'Wonderful' (Barry Harris Saturday Night Club Mix)
I listened to the full (DJ) version of this song (16 minutes). It has an okay intro, of course you would not hear this in the club but even so it is good there. Once the lyrics kick in it is great. Great vocalist (no idea who she is). The lyrics are a tiny bit repetitive but very catchy. This remix has a bit of a cowbell loop during the 'chorus' (part between verses). There is a breakdown that A&F probably does not play at the store because it really slows the song down a lot. The song goes about 2/3 the speed then speeds back up. Overall kind of cool, then with some (as usual) kick rolls we are back in the song.
This song is not generic trance or house, but this song definitely does not have me jumping out of my chair ready to do a dance-off. A tad bit too slow for me.
