Song of the Day: 'Girls Talk' by Matthew Sweet and Susanna Hoffs


Gender flipped cover of one of my favorite Dave Edmunds/Roxpile songs -- by the inimitable Sid 'n' Susie! They ended up releasing a box set of all three albums -- 1960s, 1970s and 1980s -- with a couple bonus tracks, which I never got. Did you?


Always bugged me that they included this 1979 song on their 1980s collection, even though it came out earlier in the year than Blondie's "Dreaming," which was on the 1970s disc.

I saw a wonderful musical called "Girlfriend" last spring at Signature Theatre in suburban DC that used the 10 songs from Matthew Sweet's "Girlfriend" album to tell a boy-meets-boy story. The actors/singers were brilliant, and the all-female band rocked!

I binged on Matthew Sweet all weekend after that, with the first "Under the Covers" getting in heavy rotation.
