Earworm: Tiffany – I Think We’re Alone Now

Day 2 of our female artist earworm week, and today we shall share with you another 80’s pop icon, Tiffany.  Her and Debbie Gibson battled it out back in the day.  I do however prefer more of Debbie’s songs.  Anyway, enjoy this great 80’s hit.

Earworm: Debbie Gibson – Shake Your Love

I’m going to start off with female artist earworm.  So starting today, I will be posting up songs that I find myself bopping my head to, and end up singing the rest of the day when I hear it on the radio/satellite radio. I’ll begin with 80’s pop icon, Debbie Gibson.  We heard this on the radio at work today, and we basically had a Debbie Gibson morning, and well, I’ve been shaking my head to her love all day.  Enjoy!

 

Earworm – A Light That Never Comes – Linkin Park and Steve Aoki

I just caught wind of this, and being a big LP fan, I just had to share it.  It’s not their usual fare, but it is in line with their stuff in between albums.  It’s suppose to be on their Re-animation (more…)

Damien Rice Has Worms

OK so the title for this post shouldn’t be taken seriously. It’s just some wordplay so if I’ve alarmed any Damien Rice fans I apologize. It’s a general thing I do when posting any subject matter related to an Earworm post. Such as The Blower’s Daughter, a Rice track that hit real big in 2001, and was included in the OST to the 2004 movie Closer. (more…)

Earworm: Foolish Games – Jewel

I recently listened to Jewel’s greatest hits album, and it sort of brought back memories of when she was really big back in the 90’s.  Yes, it’s not the typical music I listen to these day’s, but back then, I was still sort of discovering anything outside of the top pop hits that were being played on the radio.  I didn’t get a say to what music was being played in the car, and I didn’t really care much for music outside of the car back then.  Anyway, Jewel was probably one of my first musical crushes.  She’s just so beautiful, and such a powerful voice.  Anyway, here’s one of my all time favorite songs of hers.

 

Here’s also a nice  version that is found on the greatest hits album, it’s a duet with Kelly Clarkson.  I really enjoyed this one as well.

 

 

 

 

Kotobukiya Female Commander Shepard Figure

I was able to finally pick up this figure of Female Commander Shepard of Mass Effect fame.  It went on sale at Forbidden Planet, a NYC comic book shop for 50 beans, so I picked one up.  I’ve been wanting to get a Kotobukya figure for a while, and with a $20 price drop, I could not pass it up. After taking some photos of it, I am very happy with the level of detail and fit and finish of it.  Below is a quicky shot.  I will post up the rest shortly.

Earworm: Tegan and Sara – Closer

I didn’t like this song at first, but the more I heard it, I grew to love it.  It’s so catchy, and sort of reminds me of Franz Ferdinands “Take Me Out“.  Enjoy

and here’s Franz Ferdinand’s “Take Me Out”
