The Era of Blonde Pop-Rock Goddesses

It's 11:30, and I want to put up a quick post... I've been busy on the job, with the little free time I've had spent looking up orgeat recipes. Anyway, time to post a video... I decided to post a bit of bubblegum pop, with a theme that I usually abhor (of the "I can't go on without you" variety). For some reason, I think that Burst by Wales' Darling Buds transcends the genre:





Now that's a perfect slice of pure pop bliss, clocking in at just under three minutes. It's a pity the band didn't receive a greater measure of commercial success, a situation probably brought on by the fact that they were hard to distinguish from bands such as The Primitives:





And, of course, Transvision Vamp:





Hmmm... the late 80's and early 90's were a good era for guitar-pop bands fronted by seriously babelicious blondes. Ah, who am I kidding? Any era is good for that.


UPDATE: I'd be remiss if I didn't pay respects to my favorite blonde 80's-90's guitar goddess from this side of the Atlantic, namely the gorgeous and talented Tanya Donnelly:





I think mikey would disown me if I left Ms. Donnelly out of the equation.

Throwing Muses was indeed quite easy on the eyes, in the tradition of the Go-Gos and The Runaways.

As to Blonde Pop-Rock Goddesses, they all serve at the pleasure of their queen, Debbie Harry...

P.S. She's not blonde, but Joan Jett rocks.

I linked to a video of "X Offender", one of my favorite Blondie numbers.

One of my favorite Go-Go's songs. I love me some Joan Jett too, I hear she'll be coming out with a new album soon.
