Sock it to ME???

Strange waking dreams (I guess you could call them that) vexed me over the last few days… I saw President Nixon singing pop songs by female vocalists.

What songs and by what singers?
It all started with “Girlfriend” by Avril Lavigne… very strange. The song itself is mostly fun pop, but definitely in the modern pop feel. I’m not sure if it is pop-parody, a jab at psycho-girlfriends, a jab at narcissist girls, or an “empowering” song for girls with no scruples. All that from the original 60s Comeback Kid.

Not only “Girlfriend”, but “Take It Off” by The Donnas… which is an absolute blast (especially with Guitar Hero), but undeniably bizarre when you imagine a former president (not to mention a dead former president) singing any line from that song.

What else?
“Ready to Go” by Republica
“We’ve Got the Beat” by The Go-Gos
“Girls Just Wanna Have Fun” by Cyndi Lauper
“Like a Virgin” by Madonna

I have no idea why… however, it lead to a couple of funny songs at work.
