"Total Control"

One of those rainy-night obsessive songs that steals up on you so stealthily, grabs you in a velvet headlock, and just doesn't let go. Martha Davis' voice just settles gently over an achingly slow, stately beat, persuading you ever so quietly that love is one of those deals where you do have to have all or nothing, and that if it's the last thing she does, she's going to have it all from you. It could almost be a love song from a stalker but it's saved by the break in her voice, the almost pleading note she sometimes hits.
