i don't know some of these. and i didn't know "androgynous" was a single (or a video). but that's a lot of great singles.

tipsy mothra, Tuesday, 11 December 2007 05:50 (ten years ago) Permalink

(oops i didn't look close that's not a real video. but the wikipedia list sez it was a real single, so close enough.)

Crimson and Clover, over and over.

Johnny Fever, Tuesday, 11 December 2007 05:53 (ten years ago) Permalink

yeah i'm guessing it's mostly "bad reputation" vs. "crimson & clover." with some "i love rock 'n' roll" outliers, plus assorted wild cards. i could almost go "victim of circumstance."

tipsy mothra, Tuesday, 11 December 2007 05:54 (ten years ago) Permalink

but who'm i kidding, her "crimson & clover" is like one of my 10 favorite songs of all time.

tipsy mothra, Tuesday, 11 December 2007 05:54 (ten years ago) Permalink

She has singles??!?!?!!

Tape Store, Tuesday, 11 December 2007 05:55 (ten years ago) Permalink

I'm going to bat for her hair metal days: "I Hate Myself.." - but my love for Freaks & Geeks really makes me want to vote for "Bad Reputation."

Pillbox, Tuesday, 11 December 2007 06:00 (ten years ago) Permalink

(nb: the "cherry bomb" on the list is her re-recording, not the runaways' version. which is still totally great and all, just noting for the record.)

tipsy mothra, Tuesday, 11 December 2007 06:02 (ten years ago) Permalink

Big Orioles fan.

such a badass.

tipsy mothra, Tuesday, 11 December 2007 06:31 (ten years ago) Permalink

Oh,hmm...just read this on the Joan Jett wiki: "Jett is to executive produce the 2009 upcoming film Neon Angels, which chronicles the Runaways' career. Floria Sigismondi, who has also directed videos for Marilyn Manson, the White Stripes and David Bowie, is to write and direct."

I'll watch that.

Johnny Fever, Tuesday, 11 December 2007 08:18 (ten years ago) Permalink

Didn't she get Lungfish to open for her on some shows? She's a huge Fugazi fan, apparently.

Savannah Smiles, Tuesday, 11 December 2007 09:46 (ten years ago) Permalink

i could almost go "victim of circumstance."

DO IT!

Worth it almost for the first line alone...

rogermexico., Tuesday, 11 December 2007 09:54 (ten years ago) Permalink

Neither do I but "I Love Rock'n'Roll" is OK voting for, I guess.

Geir Hongro, Tuesday, 11 December 2007 12:15 (ten years ago) Permalink

But Geir she didn't write that song! Oh noes.

Colonel Poo, Tuesday, 11 December 2007 12:18 (ten years ago) Permalink

her "crimson & clover"Bad Reputation is like one of my 10 favorite songs of all time.

Colonel Poo, Tuesday, 11 December 2007 12:18 (ten years ago) Permalink

Yeah, and it now conjurs the opening credits of "Freaks and Geeks" for me as well, which only sweetens the deal.

Savannah Smiles, Tuesday, 11 December 2007 12:28 (ten years ago) Permalink

I really liked her cover of the Gits' "Second Skin" (under the name EVIL STIG), but -- y'know, that's not here. So I'm going with "Bad Reputation," `cos it rocks.

Alex in NYC, Tuesday, 11 December 2007 13:52 (ten years ago) Permalink

'bad reputation' is yoga flame for all time.

That one guy that hit it and quit it, Tuesday, 11 December 2007 15:41 (ten years ago) Permalink

Watching her videos on youtube give me a warm feeeling, if you know what I mean. Sexy as all hell get out.

Bill Magill, Tuesday, 11 December 2007 17:40 (ten years ago) Permalink

EVIL STIG album severely underrrated

Shakey Mo Collier, Tuesday, 11 December 2007 17:42 (ten years ago) Permalink

"I Hate Myself...," but I love lots of these, especially "Light of Day."

Alfred, Lord Sotosyn, Tuesday, 11 December 2007 17:43 (ten years ago) Permalink

yeah evil stig is a solid rock record, and a pretty cool move too.

"light of day" is excellent. (and she's good in the movie.)

tipsy mothra, Tuesday, 11 December 2007 18:32 (ten years ago) Permalink

forgot how much i like this one.

tipsy mothra, Tuesday, 11 December 2007 18:44 (ten years ago) Permalink

Wow, not much of a body of work is it?

dally, Tuesday, 11 December 2007 18:45 (ten years ago) Permalink

pssh. greatest cover artist of the last 30 years.

tipsy mothra, Tuesday, 11 December 2007 18:56 (ten years ago) Permalink

(that could be an exaggeration. but her taste is unfuckwithable.)

tipsy mothra, Tuesday, 11 December 2007 18:57 (ten years ago) Permalink

I love her "Roadrunner." Obviously a very different beast than Richman's, but I don't think the polish hurts it any. The backing vox are ace.

Doctor Casino, Wednesday, 12 December 2007 07:16 (ten years ago) Permalink

Automatic thread bump. This poll is closing tomorrow.

ILX System, Thursday, 13 December 2007 00:01 (ten years ago) Permalink

"Cherry Bomb", which I like even more than the Runaways' original (wasn't real crazy about Cherie Currie's Mae West-inflection.)

"Fake Friends", "C&C", "Bad Reputation" all pretty great too.

Myonga Vön Bontee, Thursday, 13 December 2007 02:55 (ten years ago) Permalink

DO YA WANNA TOUCH

YEAH

DO YA WANNA TOUCH

YEAH

she does some kind of key modulation to the last chorus in that tune that just slays me.

Fit To Be Tied is one of the greatest albums in rock history.

yup.

occupy the A train (difficult listening hour), Monday, 24 October 2011 15:19 (six years ago) Permalink

one of the best covers artists ever. "crimson and clover" + "do you wanna touch me" + "i love rock and roll", all totally repossessed.

occupy the A train (difficult listening hour), Monday, 24 October 2011 15:21 (six years ago) Permalink

"do you wanna touch me" has the simplest/best/lolest little talking-to-herself bit:

DO YOU WANNA TOUCH ME THERE
WHERE
THERE
YEAH

occupy the A train (difficult listening hour), Monday, 24 October 2011 15:24 (six years ago) Permalink

and "Everyday People"! and "Roadrunner"!

lumber up, limbaugh down (Alfred, Lord Sotosyn), Monday, 24 October 2011 15:25 (six years ago) Permalink

sometimes hers is my favorite roadrunner i know that's blasphemy and stuff, people look at me pityingly at parties

i'm glad "fake friends" got some votes.

have you heard "French Song"? It's sexy.

lumber up, limbaugh down (Alfred, Lord Sotosyn), Monday, 24 October 2011 15:27 (six years ago) Permalink

i haven't! i have heard the evil stig album, which is completely lovable; alex otm upthread about "second skin".

occupy the A train (difficult listening hour), Monday, 24 October 2011 15:31 (six years ago) Permalink

Not a single, but I used to put this on mixtapes all the time. Possibly my favorite Joann Jett cover (Wind, cowritten by Joey Levine and originally sung by Tony Orlando!)
