Weekly Top Ten Wild Card: Things That Aren’t Britney

No disrespect to Britney Spears or anything, but we’ve done enough discussion posts about her latest material. Most of you have already made your minds up about the Femme Fatale campaign. And if you’d like to discuss her new music video for “Till The World Ends”, we politely invite you to head over here to the song’s updated post.

Now that we’ve addressed that, let’s talk about some artists who haven’t been getting a lot of love (or attention) on Manhunt Daily. Today’s Wild Card round includes “new” music from Kate Bush, Sahara Davenport, Fefe Dobson and the oh-so-persistent Nicole Scherzinger.

You know the drill by now, right? Four tracks are presented, and only one can make it onto our Weekly Top Ten. Your votes determine who’ll achieve this prestigious honor. Speaking of which, have you voted on this week’s charts? The polls are open until Friday!

If you’re not feeling any of these options, we urge you to leave a comment with your pick for the next countdown. There are no limits in regards to genre, sound or style. Just let us know what you’re listening to, and maybe you’ll see it on our rankings!

To listen to these selections, follow the JUMP:

Kate Bush – Deeper Understanding: The younger folks are going to roll their eyes and wonder why we’re featuring some crazy old lady. The older folks are going to roll their eyes and wonder why we’re featuring a song from Bush’s 1989 album The Sensual World. Relax! It’s a completed retooled version of the track, in which the singer explores the relationship between a lonely person and their computer. Keep in mind, this was written twelve years before Manhunt was invented. As for you young’ns? Kate Bush was making pop music weird before Lady Gaga was even born. Have some respect for a legendary artist!


Sahara Davenport – Pump With Me: Yes, this is a dance track recorded by a former contestant from RuPaul’s Drag Race. It also happens to be our current fave Manila Luzon‘s boyfriend/girlfriend. Will she blow your socks off with her musical artistry? Probably not. But this is so fucking fun that we can’t handle it.


Fefe Dobson – Can’t Breathe: We were pleasantly surprised by this Canadian singer-songwriter’s poppier offerings, “Ghost” and “Stuttering”. Even so, neither of them managed to excel on our Weekly Top Ten competition, and we get a very distinct feeling that “Can’t Breathe” will follow in their footsteps. Super sad!


Nicole Scherzinger – Don’t Hold Your Breath: Proving that British people don’t always have better taste, this was apparently a number one hit on the UK Charts. Oh, we’re just kidding! In a weird way, we’re kind of rooting for the former Pussycat Dolls lead vocalist to succeed. If the record industry continues to shove her down our throats, we might as well enjoy it, right?
