Woah, here she comes

Ten reasons why Nelly Furtado's new single is already the best record of 2006.

1) The song has been constructed from equal portions of Hollaback Girl, No Good Advice, Crazy In Love and Milkshake. Yes, it really is that good.

2) It's called Maneater and while it doesn't sample the classic Hall & Oates track ("Woah-oh here she comes. Watch out boy, she'll chew you up"), it rather brilliantly sounds like the song was in the back of her mind all the time.

3) Nelly sometimes sings in a voice that would sound nasal to an aardvark. On this song, she does not.

4) maneater contains the lyric "Move your body like a nympho"

5) It's produced by Timbaland, of Missy Eliot fame. Except he's doing pop like he did on Justin's Cry Me A River. This is a 'good thing', and there should be more of it.

6) There is more of it! An entire album of Nelly / Timbaland collaborations, called Loose. If it is as good as the tracks we've heard so far, we will even forgive the Chris Martin duet.

7) When you think about it, Nelly Furtado is quite cute for an elf.

8) No guitars!

9) Er…

10) That's it.
