I am a music columnist at the SF Weekly now!

Look! I have a new column at the SF Weekly! It's centered on my (over)analysis of my personal earworms, which are many and varied thanks to being an old fart music reviewer. Here's the first installment:

She's an Earworm: The Tubes Reconsidered

The next one goes live next Tuesday, and every Tuesday after that.

I had ridiculous fun pitching and writing this column, and a great chat with my old friend Prince$$ Pandora on Sunday night to help flesh it out. I wish I could have put even 1/3 of the things we talked about in the column. (I also wish my phone had recorded the convo better. Working on it...)

More to come! Every dang week!


That was, by the way, a great column. And it was just enough longer to read than to listen to the song, too. I mean, I listened as I read part of it and then the song sort of echoed in my brain as I read the rest.
great column, I hadn't heard that song before, but after reading the column I had to listen to White Punks on Dope, which is the song I connect to The Tubes, but now I think I don't need to listen to The Tubes again for another 30 years. I'm looking forward to reading your column on music every week. congratulations!
Loved the column!

I always kind of liked the song and have fond memories of the weird 80s video. I feel like there was another, similarly-themed video about the same time but with much more male-centric overtones; I thought it might be either "Angel is a Centerfold" by J. Giles Band or "Photograph" by Def Leppard, and it's not a Duran Duran song, so I'm stuck.
