Apologize-Timbaland (Featuring One Republic)

I really don’t like this song. I especially hate the elision of the syllable for the word “to” in the “too late to apologize” line. There is something to be said for it’s particular pop sensibilities. One, it is a total smash. Two, it makes hay with a relatively depressing yet deeply true-ringing sentiment. The fact that there exists some time x whereby an apology y equals 0. The reasons for such mathematical truth are numerous. I believe in some cases that y=0 holds, while it is the perception of x that can be defined by some f(y). Either way, I’m slightly shocked that it took Madonna and JT to somehow wash off the Timbaland magic dust. I can’t tell if I want him to recede even further from the radio or keep dropping hits.
