To mix the whole “female vocalist” thing together with the “guilty pleasure” thing and I’m reminded of Independent Love Song.

You may remember this one from the mid-90’s.

Yeah, I sang along to it in the car. Top volume.

It’s not aged that well, however. I admit that. Strangely, while researching the whole “female vocalist” thing that was going on in the 90’s I found that not only did Scarlet sing “Independent Love Song” but so did German Punk Rock band The Bates.

In reclaiming it, they made it a song that, once again, you can sing along to in the car at top volume.

So… what are you listening to?


Jaybird is Birdmojo on Xbox Live and Jaybirdmojo on Playstation's network. He's been playing consoles since the Atari 2600 and it was Zork that taught him how to touch-type. If you've got a song for Wednesday, a commercial for Saturday, a recommendation for Tuesday, an essay for Monday, or, heck, just a handful a questions, fire off an email to


  1. It may or may not be reflective of our relationship that I always sang along to the Bates version (and didn’t even remember the original until you posted it).
