Adam Schlesinger dead at 52 from Coronavirus

Adam Schelsinger, founding member of the group Fountains of Wayne, died from the Coronavirus.

According to Wikipedia: “Stacy’s Mom” was written by bassist Adam Schlesinger and vocalist Chris Collingwood, both of whom produced the song alongside Mike Denneen. Its subject matter was inspired by a friend of Schlesinger’s when he was young who had a crush on his grandmother. It was a power pop song with which the group hoped to emulate the sound of The Cars.

I hold the opinion that the kid is stupid, Stacy is way cuter (from the perspective of a 12-year-old kid) than her mom.

The Pogues Featuring Kirsty MacColl – Fairytale Of New York

I was asked to post a video of a Christmas song that I like that doesn’t have anything to do with the Jews, so here you go.

Kirsty uses a badword in the song that’s now banned from the radio. Plus she also has great 80s hair!

What’s strange is that this is allegedly an extremely popular Christmas song in the United Kingdom and Ireland, but practically unheard of in the United States.

All I Want for Christmas Is … Jews

It wouldn’t be the holiday season without everyone’s favorite holiday song.

Now, when will someone write the song, All I Want for Hanukkah Is a Blonde Shiksa?

Akihabara Majokko Princess (2009) starring Kirsten Dunst

I know I’ve blogged about this video before, but it’s just so damned awesome! The topic of Tokyo came up in the comment section this week, with someone saying that Tokyo is a better looking city than New York. I totally disagree, Tokyo looks way more prole than New York, but also it looks way more fun. Sign me up to move there!

Thanks to Google Streetview, you can visit the street where the video was filmed without leaving your computer desk.

If someone could post links to other places in Tokyo that are worth a virtual visit, please do so.

Java Jive – The K Sisters

This song was in my head, and I found this wonderful a capella rendition of it by the voluptuous K Sisters.

I think that some of the lyrics have a delicious whiff of racism. Plus the song was originally by a black group, so it’s also cultural appropriation for three white women and an Asian woman to be singing it.

The Bangles live in Pittsburgh (1986)

If you’re a Bangles fan, this concert footage is amazing. (If you only know Manic Monday and Walk Like an Egyptian, then you can just skip to the 49-minute mark.)

Watching this makes me so sad that the Bangles gave a concert in walking distance from where I was living (in the fall of 1985 or winter or spring of 1986, not sure) and I didn’t take advantage of the opportunity to see them. I guess I wasn’t actually a Bangles fan until twenty, thirty years later.

I don’t need to point out that they have great 80s hair, but I’ll point it out anyway.

I also noticed that the girls in the band are quite skinny, which is not especially unusual, then or now, for glamorous celebrity types.

I also noticed that Susanna Hoffs is always looking sideways, and while it’s sexy in short doses, it actually gets kind of weird looking if the camera lingers on her for a longer time. Her irises alternate between being at the extreme left or extreme right of her eye sockets.
