270: “Guggenheim” by The Ting Tings

Girlz Rule!I don’t post too much music by women. I’ve noticed it before, and I’ve pondered the implications. My best guess is that I’m so manly that I don’t “get” a woman’s perspective most of the time. Supporting evidence: I have chest hair growing on my eyeballs.

But, here to defy my man-goggles is The Ting Tings (Katie White and Jules de Martino, only 50% female!!). In this song, “Guggenheim,” Ms. White goes on about some chick who skank-bombed a good relationship, and then she winds up weaving a tale of self-empowerment. It technically should not be something that a manly, hairy-chested/eyeballed dude would listen to. But it freaking rocks, and guys who are comfortable in a pink shirt would be willing to admit that they sing along when no one is around. And if you’re as manly as I am, you’ll sing along with Katie confidently (in falsetto, when appropriate) no matter who’s listening.

The Tings2 have been around since 2007, but Sounds From Nowheresville (2012) is their best thus far.

This time, I’m gonna get it right.
I’m gonna paint my face at the Guggenheim.

You GO, girl (and Jules)!

And YOU, enjoy!
