Does the world really need a Stacey Q revival?
No. It does not.
Annie's second single "Heartbeat" sounds like a cross between Stacey Q's 1986 single "Two of Hearts" and one of the weaker tracks from the Pet Shop Boys' debut _Please._ However, what should have been a G-A-Y stomper is a fairly weak pop-dance track that hardly leaves Kylie shaking as she injects her botox. Utterly lacking in the sticky catchiness of "Chewing Gum," "Heartbeat" just flatlines.
While the radio edit is mildly inoffensive, the Royksopp remix manages to take a weak song and make it worse. You can download it for free from www.anniemusic.co.uk but really, isn't there a better way for you to spend those six minutes?
