Break Up

It pains me a little to admit this, since the whole "I am an actress turned singer" thing really gets under my skin. But nonetheless...Pete Yorn & Scarlet Johansson have teamed up to make a new album and I like it. I like it a lot. Specifically, I am kind of addicted to "Relator" and have been listening to it much more than once a day (on my spankin' new green ipod, courtesy of the husband).
I do this with songs I like - listen to them until I can barely stand to hear it again and everyone who lives in a 100ft radius of me is on the brink of murder. In college there was a pretty serious Third Eye Blind incident that went on for months, eventually prompting my roommate to yell "people hate you!" as I blasted How's it Gonna Be for the 400th time. At least now I have headphones.

Hmmm. Scarlett is someone I "love to hate," but admittedly this IS catchy. Although, I can't help but feel like she's kind of imitating Zooey Deschanel's sound, and they're kind of riding on the coattails of She & Him's success? Actress-turned-singer pairs up with solo musician... sounds familiar. I am a big She & Him fan, though, so maybe I'm just a little protective :-)

Agree, Brooke! I actually heard them on a talk show and liked the song before I even walked in to see who it was. Otherwise, there was likely no way I would have bought the album. But damn if I don't like that song.

Oh, also. I hate her b/c she's married to Ryan Reynolds ;-)

But I may just have to buy this. Thanks for sharing!

I totally agree that usually I loathe all things ScarJo but I saw them on Ellen and loved this song. They actually recorded the album several years ago. I kind of dig it and I've been looking for some new music so I just went over to iTunes and it's worth 7.99.
