Here’s a brand new single straight from Santa’s Workshop!Stream and download this one-stop below “Everyday” by Josie Cotton
The iconic Josie Cotton is situated at the estuary between 80s new wave and alternative rock (just ask KROQ execs). Her star rose in the 1983 film Valley Girl with her iconoclastic catchy hit song “Johnny Are You Queer?” The song was inspired by a young woman’s anxiety-driven experience that all the best-looking boys she found attractive turned out to be gay. A year later Fleetwood Mac’s Lindsey Buckingham would offer his guitar work for her second record From The Hip. Ms. Cotton’s work has continued to inspire a generation of gung-ho camp-driven aficionados. “Green Slime” from Invasion of the B-Girls(2007) showcases her knack for camp. Her 2010 effort Pussycat Babylon turned toward a more contemporary dance music style. Nevertheless, she managed to write the banger “If A Lie Was Love.” Nevertheless, the moody “Stop Iggy Pop” grooves in a way that could have only come from Ms. Cotton’s idiosyncratic style. In an age of technologically-driven vocalists, Ms. Cotton delivers weird pop songs best because she helped propagate the genre.
