So while technically my laptop is telling me that it is 1:42 AM on Tuesday morning I have yet to go to sleep so my brain is still saying its Monday. Also on the West Coast of the US it is still Monday…so I think this qualifies as a solid Music Monday post (even if I do live on the East Coast). YAY! I’m going with I didn’t miss it!
So just a lil message to all y’all out there. Today’s song and last weeks song both have some variation of the word “Death” in the song and song title. So just a PSA (public service announcement for all y’all who ain’t in with the government issued slang) I am not in a dark place, nor am I angry, upset, or sad. I’m actually very happy…I just post music that I like…so yeah! I promise to post something more happy and positive next week!
The Pretty Reckless, fronted by Taylor Momsen, whom you may recognize as Jenny Humphrey from Gossip girl, formed in 2007. When I first heard of this band back when Gossip Girl was still on TV (post Jenny Humphrey seasons) I was reluctant to listen to The Pretty Reckless simply because of Momsen’s relation to one of my favorite TV dramas. Fast-forward to today and I heard a song on the radio as I was heading home from World Market. I looked it up as soon as I got home and who-wuda-thunk-it…it was the Pretty Reckless! I looked up a handful more of their songs and it isn’t half bad! Give it a chance and Momsen might just surprise you!
