Take Over Control
Afrojack feat. Eva Simons
If you listen closely you can hear the collective eye roll of the entire feminist movement — but for you lazy bottoms, you’ve finally got your own national anthem. “Take Over Control” is a salute to submission, as she declares, “I want you to take over control/Plug it in and turn me on.” Not a lot of confusion with that statement. Beautifully voiced by Eva Simons, 2004 winner of the Dutch reality TV contest Popstars (like American Idol, another Pop Idol clone), “Take Over Control” is one of those songs you don’t need to think too hard about; just appreciate the dynamic hooks and catchy beats. The video is an equally guilty pleasure: Eva in thigh-high boots and a chain-mail top dancing with hot girls in cheerleader outfits in a beat-up yellow school bus. A wide range of remixes were commissioned for this one, including retouches by Adam F, Apster, Ian Carey, Spencer & Hill and Sunnery James & Ryan Marciano.
