The whole song, except for the chorus, are parts made up from the 1964 teen advice book Penny’s Guide to Teen-Age Charm and Popularity, written by television actress Gloria Winters.

Monday Music Rewind: The Jesus and Mary Chain

The Jesus and Mary Chain

The Jesus and Mary Chain are a Scottish alternative rock band formed in East Kilbride, Glasgow in 1983. The band revolves around the songwriting partnership of brothers Jim and William Reid. They released a string of albums, singles and EPs between their 1983 formation and their 1999 breakup, and gained notoriety in their early days for short sets and violence that became common at their live shows. In 2007, the band reunited.

They said they got their name from a line in a Bing Crosby film, although six months later they admitted that this wasn’t true. Other accounts suggest that the name derived from an offer on a breakfast cereal packet, where customers could send off for a gold Jesus & Mary chain.

“Head On” is a song written by Jim Reid and William Reid of the Scottish alternative rock band The Jesus and Mary Chain, originally recorded for their 1989 album Automatic. It was released as a single in November 1989. Buy it here.

Fountains Of Wayne - Radiation Vibe

Fountains of Wayne is an American power pop band that formed in New York City in 1996. The band consists of members Chris Collingwood, Adam Schlesinger, Jody Porter and Brian Young.

Initially the band went by other names, including Are You My Mother? and Woolly Mammoth, before settling on Fountains of Wayne, taken from a lawn ornament store in Wayne, New Jersey. The store was located at the intersection of U.S. Route 46 and New Jersey Route 23,[3] not far from Montclair, New Jersey, the hometown of the band’s bassist and co-founder Adam Schlesinger. The store can be seen in The Sopranos episode “Another Toothpick” as well.

The store went out of business in 2009.

“Radiation Vibe” was the first single by Fountains of Wayne, from their debut album also titled Fountains of Wayne. It was released in 1996. It remains my favorite FOW song.

Monday Music Rewind: Ginuwine – Pony

This morning on twitter, the trending topic was #throwbacksongs. Scrolling through, I noticed most of them were hip-hop. It reminded me of the hit “Pony” from Ginuwine. In case you are wondering, the song isn’t about a Pony. The song must have helped in the bedroom too. He has 8 children.

Pony was released as a single from his first LP, Ginuwine…The Bachelor, in 1996. Watch the video below. Buy the song here.

The band Far has a nice rock cover of this song too.

Monday Music Rewind: Grant Lee Buffalo

Grant Lee BuffaloOne of the most under-appreciated bands of the 90s has to be Grant Lee Buffalo. Grant Lee Buffalo was a rock band based in Los Angeles, California, consisting of Grant-Lee Phillips (vocals and guitar), Paul Kimble (bass) and Joey Peters (drums).

My favorite song from the group is “Mockingbirds” from the Mighty Joe Moon album released in (1994).

They toured with major bands during the 90s including R.E.M., Pearl Jam, the Smashing Pumpkins, and The Cranberries.

The band has parted ways, but Grant-Lee Phillips continues a solo career. Paul Kimble talks about how the music industry and label prevented their sound from hitting the airwaves. A lot of thoughtful modern rock suffered under similar circumstances. It marked the beginning of the end for many.
