28 February 2022 - Doja Cat - Celebrity Skin

Once upon a time, there was a big football game that people watched for the commercials.  One of those commercials was for a little taco joint chain restaurant, and it featured a song that everyone knew was performed by Hole.... but it wasn't Courtney Love singing it....

...and why was Doja Cat in the commercial?

Well, it turns out Ms. Cat was also the artist of record on that song.  And, after that suberb owl of a game, she released the whole song... which became an instant hit on the ROCK charts, a place she hadn't been before.  

That's right.  Not a pop hit. A ROCK hit.  


Seriously, the song is a walking fire.  You can't get rid of it.  Here's the whole song, in a fan-made video, clearly cut from the Taco Bell commercial.

3 February 2022 - Kelly Willis - Harper Valley PTA

Jeanne C. Riley had her biggest hit with her debut single, written by Tom T. Hall.  Kelly Willis recorded a fantastic and nuanced cover of this song, building as it goes. Stick with it, because she understands the rising emotional impact of this super huge hit.
