"In the Dark" (CD Single)
A lot or a little?
The parents' guide to what's in this music.
What parents need to know
Parents need to know that "In the Dark" is loaded with sexual messages, including some pretty descriptive lines about getting down and dirty in the bedroom. While the track doesn't contain profanity or other mature content, the sexual references alone are enough to put it beyond the reach of younger kids.

What's the story?
Internet sensation Dev (short for Devin Star Tailes) describes some pretty hot and heavy sexual situations in \"IN THE DARK,\" a single from her forthcoming first album The Night the Sun Came Up. With lines like \"open my body up and do some surgery\" and \"I got a sex drive, just push to start,\" this tune is clearly about one thing.
Is it any good?
The trouble with calling yourself a singer is that you actually have to pack a vocal punch -- which Dev doesn't. Though she goes for a Feist-type vibe, Dev lacks the smooth, silky tone that makes Feist a stand-out. The song's unoriginal dance-pop hook doesn't help matters much, either.
