B is for Courtney Barnett

Ms. Barnett’s “Three Packs a Day” deserves a mention for not only being catchy but also hilarious. The lyrics are not about cigarettes as one would expect. Instead she sings about a ramen noodle habit (!). Gotta love that Aussie wit. And I’m going to note early that my taste for female crooners has grown a lot in the last year or so. Expect to find more women lauded by my humble blog than last year.

Today’s fake singer performs under the name Brianna. Last year I wrote about the XX, a London based trio featured on a compilation album given me by a good friend. I imagine Brianna performing something similar to the sexy XX tune “On Hold”.

  3. Ramen noodles - that's definitely a new one on me :) I suspect songs are the same as fiction, if you can think it, someone's probably written about it somewhere ::g::

  8. That sounds like a fun song. I gave up eating Ramen noodles years ago because they have so much sodium in them :)
