Ke$ha, "Your Love Is My Drug"

4

The third single off Ke$ha's debut album, "Animal"-also known as every bad girl's sleepover soundtrack-"Your Love Is My Drug" is unforgiving in its mission to equate lustful romance with substance abuse. "I'm looking down every alley/I'm making those desperate calls," the "Blah Blah Blah" singer narrates over a deeply layered electronic backdrop that knocks even harder than that of her first single, the No. 1 "TiK ToK." "The rush is worth the price I pay/I get so high when you're with me/But crash and crave you when you leave," Ke$ha belts on the bridge. "Is my love your drug?" she asks later-a silly question in theory, but when delivered with spunky vocal conviction and a healthy dose of humor, it's hard not to answer "Yes."-Melanie Bertoldi
