Joy Retro Disco presents What You Waiting For by Gwen Stefani

I’ve been cleaning out my iTunes over the last couple of weeks – desperately trying to squeeze another couple of gigs room on my hard-drive – and this song just jumped out at me while I was trawling through the least-played lists last night.

I know it’s a noughties song and so is barely retro, but there’s something about it that makes me want to get up and move. I’m not sure if it’s the OTT Alice-inspired video, or its theme of overcoming writer’s block, or the uncensored refrain screeching out “Take a chance you stupid ho!” (or all three) but I like it.

This is the song of my life right now, and as such, it is inducted into the glorious Joy Retro Disco Hall o’Fame. Welcome the Gaga-inspiration, Ms Stefani.
