"Elastic Love" is a song recorded by American recording artist Christina Aguilera, taken from her sixth studio album, Bionic (2010). The song was written by Aguilera, M.I.A.John Hill and Switch, while production was handled by the latter two. Originally, "Elastic Love" was recorded by M.I.A., but later it was given to Aguilera. However, M.I.A. was disappointed when Aguilera didn't want to do her "trademark warbling" in the studio. "Elastic Love" is an electro and electropop song with strong elements from the 80s New Wave music. Lyrically, Aguilera compares her love to office supplies, from paperclips to rubber-bands.

Upon its release, "Elastic Love" received favorable reviews from music critics, who praised the track's composition, its musical style and M.I.A.'s appearance on the song. Most of them praised it as the stand-out track on Bionic, while some of whom compared Aguilera's vocals on "Elastic Love" to those of M.I.A. and Gwen Stefani. The track was listed as the twelfth best song of 2010 by Amazon.com. Following the release of Bionic, "Elastic Love" peaked on the Gaon International Digital Chart and the Gaon International Download Chartat number 78 and 59 on June 6, 2010, respectively.

LyricsEdit

A rubber band is what I call your love for me 'Cause it comes and goes and pins me like a trampoline But all this back and forth is freaky, it's confusing me Like a pencil trying to write and you're erasing me

If I was a ruler I'll set you straight But your love is like a sharpener, it really grates 'Cause when I'm trying to bounce, you pull me back And when I try to come to you, you give me slack

Your love is pulling like a rubber band Your love is pulling like a rubber band

Elastic love, ever lastic love, ever lusting love Such a spastic love Elastic love, ever lastic love, ever lusting love Such a spastic love

La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la

A rubber was an analogy You can even say it's a metaphor The tension between you and me I ain't gonna feel if you let it go

I can take a little bit and make it more A little bit of hate can make it war But a lot of love ain't enough And so, I don't really know how we find the cure

Your love is pulling like a rubber band Your love is pulling like a rubber band

Elastic love, ever lastic love, ever lusting love Such a spastic love Elastic love, ever lastic love, ever lusting love Such a spastic love

Paper clips couldn't even hold us together Paper clips couldn't even hold us together Paper clips couldn't even hold us together If we were gaffer tape maybe we could spend the summer You could say your piece, you post it on paper When your love hits, it sticks me like a stapler

Your love is pulling like a rubber band Your love is pulling like a rubber band

Elastic love, ever lastic love, ever lusting love Such a spastic love Elastic love, ever lastic love, ever lusting love Such a spastic love
