I wanted more. Then, I found “The Donnas: Spend the Night.” Favorites include: “Who Invited You?” (which I find myself often asking), “Too Bad About Your Girlfriend,” “Pass It Around,” “It’s On the Rocks” and “Take It Off” (featured in the movie “Dodge Ball,” from "Charmed" and a panel of Paige Braddock’s "Jane’s World.")
Then, one of my absolute favorite albums: “The Donnas: Turn 21.” Favorites include: “ Snack,” (Okay – it is my favorite!) “Hot Pants,” “Gimme A Ride,” “You’ve Got A Crush On Me,” and “Nothing To Do” ("... I'm sniffing everything under the sink --- and all I really wanted was another drink ... ") That’s when I found out they had been rocking together since middle school. Middle school!!! By this album, since they’d all been born in 1979, they were all legal! Legal to party!!! These chicks were some hard rocking, beer drinking, partying, backseat making out divas. I couldn’t get enough!!! Ran that into the ground, too.
Late last year some time, I saw that they had a new album coming out: “Bitchin.’” And, apparently they were --- without the “bitch,” one article proclaimed. I finally bought the album a couple weeks ago and I have been running it into the ground … as well. “When The Show Is Over,” I think, the closest thing to a ballad I’ve ever heard them do, has bowled me over. No surprise here, I’m running this one into the ground. “Bitchin’” is short, but hot. “Better Off Dancin’” (which I’m sure a lot of would be), “Like An Animal” and “Girl Talk” have rocked me. I could go on and on and on about The Donnas, but I’m going to end here and start drawing. Really.
