The Mating Game

This post probably isn't what you thought it might be about given its title - although I am still playing the mating game with ol' teetotal, chick flick loving Tel Aviv - TCFLTA for short - I just haven't gotten around to writing about it yet, despite his many 'when are you going to blog about ME?' requests. Soon Tel Aviv, soon :-)

Instead this post is a bit of a plug for the band Bitter:Sweet. Not that they need it I'm sure, their music has been everywhere this past year. If you live in America and watch even the smallest amount of TV I don't see how you could have missed them, especially if you watch Grey's Anatomy.

Right now their song, Dirty Laundry, is being used - yet again - to promote 'Samantha Who', a cute wee TV show I'm trying on for size at the moment. I'm quite liking it.

Bitter: Sweet are a fabulous band, I love the whole slinky sound they have going on. For a while they were my band of choice for music to dance around my bedroom. They don't perform in NY very often, they're LA based, although I saw them at Joe's Pub back in February when my gorgeous gay hub - and Andersen Cooper looky likey - Miles was over for a Valentines visit. The lead singer has that whole sexy chanteuse thing going on. Miles and I had quite the girl crush on her. If you've never heard of them I hope you enjoy 'the mating game'.

GREAT song, Fish! Never heard of them, so it's always GOOD to learn of new bands and songs he he he...

To Tel Aviv: HI HI HI...Poor you!!! ;-D

I've heard about Samantha Who, but it hasn't come here yet. Maybe later he he he...

Hi Amel, I found this band via Pandora and just LOVE them. Their album, also called The Mating Game, is great. I am not sure how well known they are, but their music is everywhere.

Hope you had a lovely weekend. Fish x

I like it. Any band that can exist in a Grey's Anatomy episode and not sound super cheesy deserves an award in my book.

BTW, totally unrelated... remember I wrote about that old rap song that was a hit in London back in 1997/1998? The one that sampled Radiohead's High and Dry? It's called Tacky Love Song by Credit to the Nation. I imported it into iTunes today, so I can email you an .mp3 if you want. =+)

Ha Ha, that would be GREAT!! Thanks so much. I can trade you the Lethal Bizzle song if you don't have it already. Fish
