They call me Jane, that’s not my name!

Happy Friday, my friends! I’m pooped and quite ready for a nice weekend. But you know, I really needed something light and fun to kinda help finish the week off, to push me into the weekend with a big ol’ shmile on my facesh. Well, wouldn’t you know it, The Ting Tings new one We Started Nothing leaked out this week, and by chance, instead of listening to Wolf Parade or Islands for the 1,000,000th time, I turned this on.

And yeah, this is some good simple times! The kinda music you can check your brain at the door and just bob around all happy and content like a kid high on pixie-sticks and pepsi. Or better yet, Fun-dips and Jolt. WOOP!

It’s funny, I was listening and thinking to myself how perfect any song on this album would be perfect for an iPod commercial, then comes on “Shut Up And Let Me Go”, and, if I’m not mistaken, it’s the song on the latest iPod commercials. I don’t know really if that’s funny or disturbing. Oh well, good for them. Maybe they’ll get a Feist-like bump into the mainstream conscience, though…. sadly…. people will download the one song, listen to it for a month or so religiously, suddenly hate it, and never listen again.

Instead of one-hit wonders, we are creating one-commercial wonders…. Man, I think that’s more true than I care to acknowledge. That Sara Barelililisls on that one tivo-like device commercial, the Mac “Air” commercial lady, whatever. Scary. Yesterday’s “Macarenas” are today’s Kia commercials (“I just can’t seem to get right today, guess I’m gooooonna gee-ive up”).

I digress. The Ting Tings deserve alot more than that. Listen, then go show them all the love you gots (in the form of moneys and concert / swag table patronaging) down below… Enjoy!
