Do you know what my favourite song at the moment is?

"Toxic". By Britney Spears.

Seriously, it's fucking fantastic. I dance around the kitchen to it when I'm meant to be working. I love it. And while I haven't been a total Britney-hater, ever since she released the neptunes-ized 'Boys' (which was also great), I never thought I'd be loving one of her songs this much.

Anyway, a few days ago it inspired me to make a Superpop! playlist on my spanking new iTunes, with such gems as 'Crazy in Love' by Beyonce and 'Freak like Me' by the Sugababes and 'Everybody Get Up' by Five and 'Senorita' by Justin. Which is perfect, because the albums of all these people have way too much crappy filler, so this allows me to listen to the good bits. And now during the day, when I'm not listening to Radio 4 or Nick Cave or my old faves Fairport Convention (who I love, not least because they remind me of my childhood), I'm bouncing about to my superpop collection. God bless you, iTunes!

I keep thinking about making a CD with this year's great pop singles on. I even went and bought Dangerously in Love and the single of the Sugababes' "Hole in the Head", which is practically revolutionary. Me? Buying a single?!

But I want a CD with the Girls Aloud and Sugababes singles, and t.A.T.u's "All The Things She Said" and even Emma Bunton's "Maybe," which I also love. It seems to have been a year of great popgirl singles.

You know if you give me a list of songs you want, I can download them and put them together on a CD with my pretty rewriter and then send it to you. And then you never have to buy any of the stuff you don't want.

Ah, but I have my pretty network connection now, too! Don't tell the university, but as long as I'm sneaky I can download stuff. I think I'll have recouped my £60 annual fee by the end of term.

Thank you for the offer, though - that was really sweet!

Oh, and I know you'll disapprove of this, but it'll have Pink's "Feel Good Time" on it as well. Sorreeeee!

Hee, even though I hate Pink in general, I really like that song. So no need to apologise!

And, I forgot about Girls Aloud. The current ghastly cover of 'jump' excepted, their singles were bloody brilliant.

You know, I have an iTunes playlist of a load of these tracks, which I'm planning to burn onto CD anyway. You want a copy?

OMG I totally have a Superpop! play list too! Every now and then you just feel the urge to listen to trash, getting ready for a night out this list is a must. I even downloaded "When Will I Be Famous" by Bros and a couple of numbers from Wham!. I also have a girl angst play list, bad mood playlist, melancholy play list and a Buffy music play list.

And I wonder why I never get any work done.

That song is really good. Damn. Kind of Kylie Minogue-ish, in a good way.
