This is proof that Goldfrapp aren’t afraid to completely embrace the shamelessness of feel good ‘80s pop music. I Wanna Life could easily be early Madonna or late Fleetwood Mac.
The heart of the song is its triumphant chorus. The vocals are given an ABBA-inspired chorus treatment and an orchestra of synthesizers creates an ‘80s wall of sound.
This might be at odds with the careful restraint exercised elsewhere on the album but the explosion is meticulously controlled and the perfect canvas for Alison Goldfrapp’s euphoric singing.
