Meredith Brooks — “Bitch” (from Blurring the Edges) — Bitch - Blurring The Edges

Considering that two of last week’s three biggest hits at top 40 radio flagrantly feature the word “fuck” in their titles (Lord love you both, Pink and Cee-Lo Green!), isn’t it amusing to recall that it wasn’t so many moons ago that a large number of radio stations refused to even identify this innocuously tame little trifle by name? (Isn’t it also amusing to discover, as I did when this popped up in a shuffle yesterday while I was at work, that the pleasure in listening to this tune is laced with every bit as much guilt now as it was back in 1997 when this thing was originally a hit?)
