The Nest still has the Dusty Vinyl Archive plugged into the cigarette lighter so it can recharge its C batteries. So we’re continuing March Madness with another shopping earworm from DJ Scratchy’s other archive…. the one that houses Mecca Muzak Mondays!
This week’s selection comes from a self-made pop diva who’s a little bit Madonna, a little bit Britney, and a teaspoon of Gwen Stafani…. yet achieved nowhere near the success of any of that trio of blonde pop stars. Jessica Malakouti left home at 16 to chase her dreams of being a music star in Hollywood. Unlike many others the city chewed up and spit out, Jessie hit the ground running with a number of bands. In 2014, she went solo under the stage name Eden xo, with her debut single “Too Cool To Dance,” which a couple years ago became a frequent Mecca Radio treat…
In the same year Iggy Azalea had somehow become one of the foremost female (cough, hack) singers/rappers of the time with the ear-wretching “Fancy” (Which was thankfully salvaged as a great Weird Al parody), Eden kept the annoyance that’s possible in that deadly combination to a minimum and recorded a song that got little exposure, but is not too cool to play on The Nest!
I’ve got two more rather eclectic songs to come this month! Come back nest Monday for more Mecca Muzak Monday madness….
