Look, I am blatantly aware that I can occasionally get a bit carried away and call songs "the best of the year!" like critics do with movies even though it's only February. Alas, I am more than confident that Girls Aloud's "Untouchable" will indeed go down as the greatest song of 2009. That is very nearly reaches the highest of highs that Girls Aloud reached with "Biology" four years ago and I would consider that as one of the greatest songs ever made period, so you know it's gotta be good.
"Untouchable" is the near seven-minute space age EPIC off of their masterpiece Out of Control album (Bob Dylan should resign). I was initially wary about the track being shortened for radio and television, but I needn't have worried since the four-minute edited version is brilliant. It's been tweaked and fiddled and some parts given a Cher makeover. And then they went and gave the video clip a science fiction disaster movie effort. Great stuff.
This is why music was invented, folks.
