i’m gonna buy shoes and i’m ready for the weekend!

“Counterfeit, counterfeit
That’s what you’re shouting at me
I could run but I’d sooner have this
And I make her bleed
Lick the blood stain from your finger
Say what do you see?
Remind you that whatever you get is
What you want it to be”

Well…umm…damn. If I’m Not Alone in its stadium-rave glory wasn’t enough of an enticement to get one warmed up, it’s safe to say that this, the second single from Calvin Harris and the title track to the new record will be.  Ready For The Weekend turns things down a slight notch on the bpms but definitely keeps the fun right where it should be. Possibly the poppiest of his singles to date rivalling the highs of The Girls, Ready For The Weekend finds our lovable hero employing a new wave sound even more retro than Acceptable In The 80s and with an extra kick supplied by Mary Pearce in the chorus.

Really, the best way to describe this song is simply by repeating how much fun it is! This begs to be played on the dancefloor in its original version. No need for remixes as it would be quite a kick to see a bunch of clubbers pogoing like it was 1982.  Ready For The Weekend is out the 6th of October via Ultra. Consider the change of labels a good thing since it was obvious Columbia had no idea how to market CH in the States. Shocker….
