"Catch Me (I'm Falling)"-Pretty Poison (1988)

In honesty, this is one of my favorite pop songs of all-time. Yes, I'm a sucker for a random electric guitar solo and some cutesy lyrics about being in love. Sue me. Even after not hearing it for years and re-discovering it about a week ago, I still can't help but think this is pop perfection. Sadly, Pretty Poison didn't achieve much success after this track was released, but well...they kind of brought it on themselves. When you make a song so accessibly catchy (this song is a sneaky little mash-up of about five varying musical genres) it's just feasibly hard to live up to the hype. So its quite understandable why they were doomed on the cruise ship for one-hit wonders. Still the band hit it great the first time out and that's what's important in the end. Perky, slick and catchy as hell...this will be lodged in my brain come next week, betcha ten bucks.

Pretty P. on Soild Gold...chose this over the original video as you can hear the song, and not sound bytes from an obscure Jon Cryer film called, Hiding Out...lead singer, Jade Starling has some serious red hair, in fact, a lot of the hair in this performance is serious.
