Natural Selection - "Do Anything"
Published July 05, 2006 by Alfred Soto | E-mail this post
Simply one of my favorite singles of the '90s: a huge hit, stopped from hitting number-one in the fall of 1991 -- in one of those poignant ironies without which life is just another average episode of "Frasier" -- by a killer track sung and composed by the albatross Natural Selection could never escape (the track is "Cream"; the rest is up to you, apostate). "Do Anything" is one of the better Prince rips ever recorded, at a time when homages were no longer commercially desirable (or necessary?). Hot synth-guitar, silvery falsettos, and Madonna backup singer Nikki Harris' cooed encouragements. Of course Natural Selection could only do it once.
