Sinitta - So Many Men So Little Time

Thank the gods for the sparkling pop return of Sinitta. Gay men, single ladies, horny house wives and anyone else who just loves a good ol' shimmy will appreciate her brand new single, So Many Men So Little Time - a throwback to the musical majesty of songs like So Macho, Toy Boy and I Don't Believe In Miracles. This single is definitely a family affair - it was originally recorded by Miquel Brown (Sinitta's mother) and featured on that singers amazing album Manpower (which if you don't already own you should hunt down by any means necessary). Back in 1983 it became a defining moment of the Hi-NRG sound and thusly seems fitting that Sinitta should record it 30 years later. Before I get into the song, let's examine the provocative cover art. Whether you remember Sinitta from her music career in the 80s & 90s or whether you are more familiar with her wearing palm tree leaves on the X-Factor you will know she's not one for the understatement. Here are five of the key points about the cover (above)...
  • 1 - Frankly I'm surprised there are only 3 men. I thought she'd go all Kylie All The Lovers and drape herself over many many muscular male forms (all for her art you understand)...
  • 2 - these boots are made for walking! Everything (clothes, hair, men, boots) just clings to Sinitta's nigh on perfect frame. Damn but the girl do look good...
  • 3 - there may be many men on the cover but I sense that all would leave Sinitta with a lot of time on her hands. Guy on her left is clearly eyeing up the sleeve tattoo of the guy on her right...
  • 4 - Meanwhile, the guy on her right has obviously spotted the attentions of Mr Guy on the Left and is giving him a look that says "oh. Oh you like that do you? Well come over here and see what other goodies I have to offer you..."
  • 5 - Finally, My Guy on Top (how I like them personally) is ignoring all this blatant and audacious flirting. He has got one thing on his mind - CAREER :P He is smoldering at the camera for all he is worth. Works for me. I was all but yelling "CALL ME" at the screen in vain hopes that he would a) hear me and b) dump the supermodel girl/boyfriend he would obviously have ;)
That in and of itself is truly glorious enough, but of course we get the music too and it's as joyous a romp as one would hope from an artist like Sinitta with a saucy title such as this :) It all kicks off with some Weather Girls style chat ("Sinitta? You got a man in there?" "Uh uh") before the beefy fellas count off the numerous dudes that proliferate Sinitta's world (and possibly their world, and definitely hopefully yours/mine!) Sinitta sings of all the fine assets of these upstanding gentlemen and sounds utterly gleeful and exuberant in doing so. This is important as it brings a sense of giddy fun to the proceedings and vocally she is as engaging & delightful as ever. It's set to a sprightly, energetic instrumental that embraces the Hi_NRG origins of the song through that percolating drum beat and the synth drenched keyboard effects yet still adds a harder edged contemporary element to the tune (particularly during the rap middle 8 which then crescendos into a full on disco explosion with Ibiza-esque rave infusions a plenty). It's entirely intoxicating and just too too good to resist - so abandon all ye pop snobbery and fling yourself into hedonistic, thoroughly enjoyable music that will put a smile on your face while you prowl the town for your latest prey :)
