Ignored Obscured Restored
OK, so maybe I’ve lost my mind!!! Today’s SotW is a track that went viral on TikTok, the short-form, social media app that targets guys like me as their key demographic. Right!
As I put together my “best of 2020” playlist, one of my favorites was “Space Girl” by Frances Forever.
I’m a sap for a good power pop song and “Space Girl” checks all the boxes. It has energy, charm, and a good hook.
Frances Forever is a young Massachusetts based singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist. She grabbed some attention after a 2019 appearance on NPR’s Tiny Desk concert series featured “Space Girl.” From there it went viral on TikTok, then Spotify and Apple Music.
The lyrics remind me thematically of another power pop classic – “Another Girl Another Planet” by The Only Ones – the SotW on February 4th, 2012.
Let’s wait to see if this is a one-hit-wonder or if Frances Forever will show some lasting power.
Enjoy… until next week.
