Mandy Moore is a new woman you know

Remember Mandy Moore? Not so long ago, when I was a homone-fuelled teenage boy I used to think her debut single Candy was cool (and she was hot). It was cool indeed, but it didn't exactly pass the test of time the way Britney's Baby One More Time did, to compare things that are comparable. It's funny because I heard the song again during the pas weekend, and it reminded me many things! So of course I watched the video on You Tube and felt very old.

Whatever, after Candy, I slightly lost interest in Mandy, until last year, when a song called Gardenia arrived on my computer thanks to my dear friend P. It has nothing of the sugary pop sound of her beginnings, but instead was rather deep (as far as pop can be!) and pretty moving. All that to say that Mandy in now a grown-up aiming at a more mature sound, while remaining a pop artist.

That's exactly the feeling you get when you hear that new song of hers called I Could Break Your Heart Any Day Of The Week. It's an up-tempo piece of shamedless pop that gets into your mind as fast as a Pussycat Doll spreading her legs. It might not be the song of the century, but it will do the trick if you're looking for something fresh and safe for the week!

And just for old time's sake, here are Candy & Gardenia.
