Joyously addictive mutual self-destruction is what "Do It Again" is all about. Just try to only play it once.

In a career fraught with obsessions over the perfection-imperfection dichotomy, it turns out to be a blessing that she put pop and its various pressures on the backburner just to deliver some real summertime sadness.
