The Pussycat Dolls decided to follow up one of the best singles of 2005, "Don't Cha," with "Stickwitu"?! A ballad?!?! It's got some mightily lame production, all tinkly-Casio keyboards, and serves to make you think, "Hmm, maybe the Spice Girls really were good singers." (For the record, I'm a big Spice Girls fan, don't hate. But great singers they most definitely were not.) It takes some effort to release one of the year's best singles, and one of its worst; it's almost perversely impressive.
