Sweetness is Sophie B. Hawkins singing “Damn I Wish I Was Your Lover”. What an awesome song. Year? 1992. I know, I’m old. And only getting older. Less than 6 months to 30! Rock!
It seems that most of Ms. Hawkins’ new music is but a pale shadow in comparison to “Damn I Wish I Was Your Lover”. Oh, well. So was the rest of that album.
Speaking of old bands, Helmet recently came out with a new CD (and a somewhat revamped lineup) in July of 2006. That’s recent, considering the last I remember hearing of them was in the nineties. The CD still hasn’t grown on me as much as I would like. I think Betty will always be my favorite Helmet CD. It’s just unfair to come back after all that time and try to bring back the magic that used to be held within the hands of certain people when they played music together. It won’t work. If it did, it would be completely necessary for all the original people to be present.
Anyway, that completes my rambles on the topic of la musica ahora. Buenos noches!
