Hitchcock and Russian Roulette

What’s with the use of Alfred Hitchcock in songs recently.  Pitbull mentions him in Oche Calle.  But for him he wants to make a film and you know the kind I mean.  Lady gaga makes clear refences to Hitchcock’s movies in Bad Romance with “I want your psycho, your vertigo stick, want you in my rear window,” which she explains in her Alexa Chung interview as wanting someone to the point that your willing to accept even the deepest darkest parts of them and of course its a Hitchcock shoutout.

Russian Roulette’s making its rounds in songs as well.  But so far its hit and miss.  Lady Gaga says “Russian Roulette is not the same without a gun” in Pokerface.  And Rihanna’s got a new song called Russian Roulette, but so far I’ve heard at least as many complaints as praises about the song.

Like any of these songs?

For some reason for her next single Russian Roulette, Rihanna wants to look like Angelina Jolie’s character from Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow.
