Dead poets and drum machines, Part 2



Remember that Natasha Bedingfield jawn we were going on about earlier this week? "Read some Byron, Shelley and Keats/Recited it over a hip-hop beat"? Couldn't find the original, but urban radio promoters are doing one better:

Natasha Bedingfield, "These Words (Reggaeton Remix)" (mp3, via S.I.N.)

Also, thanks to Phoenix contributor Elisabeth (Popmatters/Purpology) Donnelly for emailing additional insight on Tasha's literary allusions:

"I think that song is a super super meta song because the lyrics are also taking apart the last lines of classic Brit coming of age novel I Capture The Castle, which is something like 'Nothing more to write on the page, I love you, I love you, I love you.'

"So put that on top of the Shelley, Bryon, and Keats: dang!"
