Pitchfork: Beyonce – “1 + 1″

one comment

Wrote about Beyonce’s “1 + 1.” This song’s way different than third-rate “Pon De Floor” wannabe “Run The World” and the A.D.D. marching band party of “Til The End Of Time,” and hey, I like stuff like that as much as anybody, but this one just destroys in a really traditional, classic songwriting way, and that doesn’t happen too much anymore. There’s a lot of loaded stuff behind what is ostensibly a love ballad that totally fit in on American Idol where it premiered. The way I tried to sell this to a few people and though it only sort of makes sense, it does sound good: Imagine TV On The Radio’s concluding Dear Science two-fer “DLZ and “Lover’s Day,” crammed into one cathartic pop ballad.
