Miss Puxxy Reviews The New Darren Hayes Single

Ever since my megabitch cat Miss Puxxy (excuse the spelling, but this is a family site, hookers) first began hopping on top of D'stereo D'Luv, I've always trusted her judgement on what constitutes good or bad music. If she's really into a song, you'll often find her looking quite like this in the photo, staring into space, taking in the song and tapping her paw along to the beat.

Today, I played Darren Hayes' new single, "So Beautiful," for Miss Puxxy. It's off the upcoming Savage Garden greatest hits set, and it's a ballad that Darren wrote and produced himself -- sort of a precursor to his third solo album being released in the new year.

Miss Puxxy stared into space for the first two minutes. By the middle-eight, she licked her tail, indifferent to what sounds like a Savage Garden throwback to the period when the band realized that boring songs charted better than "To The Moon And Back." Before the tune ended, she was already on her way to her 4th nap of the morning. It should be noted, however, that upon a second listen, Miss Puxxy did warm up to the song, as her tail began wagging a little bit during her slumber.

"So Beautiful" is available for download now at the U.S. iTunes music store, and is released on CD single format in the UK on Monday.

    How strange to precede the Savage Garden greatest hits with a solo single. Does anyone know what happened to the other guy? Is he still alive? Did he ever really exist? Come to think of it, I can't even remember what he looked like.

    Miss Puxxy says that Daniel did indeed exist, and still does, actually! Much like Rick Astley, he got tired of the "fame game" and just wanted to settle down and have a normal family life once the tour for SG's 2000 album ended.

    This was a major disspointment to Darren, Miss Puxx adds, as he wanted to keep on truckin'.

    Anyway, the new song's a grower, though not for you, my child. You'd be ashamed of D'Luv for luvin' it.

    So does Daniel have a trust fund or did he just decide stocking shelves at Aldi was more fulfilling than being in a pop band? Ask Miss Puxx for me.

    I hope Daxxen's next album is as good as his last one. Can't believe he's already in the studio.
