I think I found Don Henley's missing guitar riffs.
Seconda loves this video. Especially "the girl in the two piece red dress - she's so pretty!"
If this doesn't do it for you, I recommend a hit of Mika, my new boy-toy.
Dang. I can't remember whether it was Mom-101 or Her Bad Mother who turned me on to Mika and his infectious Lollipop song. This song needs to come with a warning: Once you hear it, you will want to hear it again and again and soon you will be singing it out loud while waggling your shoulders and hips in embarrassing ways. This is borderline acceptable - or perhaps just expected - if you are, say, part of a giddy gaggle of 15-year-old girls giggling loudly through the mall on a Friday night trying to get the attention of 15-year-old boys by singing wholesome, sexually charged lyrics. Or maybe 12-year-old girls do this, I don't know.
However, if you are 40 years old and dancing around the kitchen singing this song in an attempt to be cute and coy, your 41-year-old husband will immediately turn heel, retreat to his man cave, and turn up the Velvet Underground.
And if you are 5-years-old and bopping around singing this song one kajillion-brazillion times at the local playground, all the other mommies will glower and shake their heads. And your mommy will not be invited to bunco anymore.
So be warned about the Lollipop song.
The Grace Kelly song isn't quite as infectious, but it makes me happy. How adorably nifty is this Mika guy? I predict a Freddie Mercury biopic any day now.
Mika, Grace Kelly
There. Don't you feel all sweet and frothy now?
