  • Theresa from Murfreesboro, TnLoved the video - this song made me a Nelly Furtado fan. Her music is all the over place, hard to catergorize her genre.
  • Leah from Brooklyn, NyIn the techno dance version, this tune has a nearly unstoppable beat. Try it for a real treat!
  • Gerry Walsh from Melbourne, AustraliaRipper song and clip!
