With Justin Timberlake's new album coming on on Tuesday, digging through the Timberblake archives is what I've listened to the majority of the week. I'm on my second streaming of The 20/20 Experience. And I think we all knew in the first listen of Suit and Tie that nothing was ever going to come close to FutureSex/LoveSounds, because it was an album that defined an era of our generation, but he's back. And quite honestly, that's about the best good news we've gotten in terms of entertainment in 2013.
What are my favorite things Justin has sung to us to date? Well, here you go. In no particular order.
"Senorita, I feel for you. You deal with things that you don't have to. He doesn't love you, I can tell by his charm. But you could feel this real love, if you just lay in my..."
Bonus points for giving a shout-out to a brown-eyed girl. A "hollerback" fasletto. And the ending line of "Ladies, good morning."
Bye, Bye, Bye
"Just hit me with the truth, now. Girl you're more than welcome to. So give me one good reason, baby come on."
Admittedly, I was JC girl during the Nsync hey-dey. So most of my favorite lines are his. But still, JT's chuckle is pretty irresistible.
Rock Your Body
Anytime he's singing about grabbing girls.
This song is perfect for sorority formals. Trust me.
Cry Me A River
The entire chorus. Who am I kidding. The entire song.
Plus the video. This is song is a masterpiece.
"I"ll let you whip me if I misbehave."
I think that says it all really.
So if you need me, I'll be the girl mouthing song lyrics and asking if the room is getting any hotter. But I know I'm not alone.
