I saw this video the day The Guardian posted it on 5th January and ran away, sharpish. I hated it. Good tune, though.
There isn't anything much lyrically in 'My House', it's all in the energy and the beat. If you like dance music, this is incredibly addictive.
However, I wasn't expecting anything quite so faithful to the early 90s from the video, although really, why was I surprised. I didn't know about the ad break till today, I'd stopped watching by that point. More blasts from the past and, for some reason, somewhat disturbing.
So it was with slight trepidation that I approached the new album. …

2010 was an undeniably great year for music. There was the birth of \\/\\/|†©|•| |•|Ωµ§∑ genre (oh, having troubles reading that? No worries, that just means you're not cool enough for the Wi†ch House standards. Get on the b∆ndw∆gon, all you non-▼ n00bz). Nicki Minaj fiiinally got recognition she rightfully deserves; after all, she IS the best female MC, not to mention the fact that she's, just, like, out there, with that in-your-face style, and that 15 year old, gay, Brazillian boys with their shirtless pics as their Last.fm avatars cream on her fashion sense and her general wackiness. Then, there was Ke$ha's rise to fame and her claiming the top spot on Last.fm's Best of 2010 list. I just love that dirty ol' poetic $lut.
Now, on a serious note, this was genuinely a very, very good year for music in general. Loads of great albums, some brilliant new artists emerged, some utterly amazing covers and songs…
