Rachel Stevens – Sweet Dreams My L.A. Ex

So some strange trivia about this song is that it was originally intended for Britney Spears but label Jiverejected it. The song is meant to be a reaction to Justin Timberlake‘s extremely popular “Cry Me A River”. How this song would have performed if pop monolith Spears ended up with it is difficult to say but I think Rachel did it justice, bringing it to position 2 on the top 40 chart.

The second track (which also features on the album Funky Dory) is reasonably forgettable. The mandatory remix on track 3 is painful and uninspired electro take on the original.
