day 15 – a song that describes you

We’re over the halfway point. To get all Oscars speech, it’s you guys that have made this happen! That’s right, the little people! I’m sorry, there might be tears, especially with the distinctly emo-teen-MySpace to today’s theme.

Britney Spears – Circus

I’m a put-on-a-show kinda girl.

Circus the album is Britney at her most meta. A lot of the tracks are just about bein’ Britney. About not even Britney Spears, real slightly-messed-up-by-showbiz girl, but the public’s perception of BRITNEY, name-in-sparkling-lights icon.

And so, mostly, what they’re about is the spotlight, grabbing attention, and putting on a show. I’m no Britney, but can appreciate that.

As a ‘song that describes me’, it’s more about the alcohol-fuelled Mr Hyde that is Drunk Alex, dancing, stripping and generally striving for the spotlight. It was standing on a chair one night, gyrating to this song that it all clicked. But I’ve got to admit, it applies to me too. After all, here I am writing this.

It’s not that I’m starved of love or histrionic* or anything: sometimes, the attention just feels good.

*Though, thanks for that diagnosis Dr Cowley. If you’re reading this… this one’s for you!
