Swedish pop duo Roxette - 'It Must Have Been Love', 'The Look', 'Joyride', you know the ones - subtitled their Greatest Hits album Don't Bore Us, Get To The Chorus! It's a snappy little slogan, one that certain chart acts would do well to remember at times, and it springs to mind when discussing 'Shake It', the debut single from US pop/rockers Metro Station.
Why? Well, everything about this track - the fairly standard verses, the weedy vocals, the rather tedious lyrics - is passable at best. Except, crucially, for the chorus, which is big, chanty and as easy to resist as a Krispy Kreme doughnut being dangled down on a rope in front of your PC. Roxette didn't sell 45m albums by accident, you know.
