Day 5: Week of Skirt, skort and dress
Today is all about rock ‘n’ roll.
It’s a battle of the bands. Not just any bands but girl bands.
In my mind The Runaways were truly awesome and Joan Jett wrote one of the best rock chick songs of all time in Cherry Bomb.
Another thing that ensures the Runaways are now officially amazing is the bio-pic that’s come out in the USA starring those 2 legends of the silver screen Kristen ‘Twilight’ Stewart as Joan Jett and Dakota ‘War of the Worlds’ Fanning as Cherie Curie.
Check out the original Runaways. Rockin’ teenage girls rule!!
This song caused some consternation with YoD when a friend of mine said it was quote SHIT unquote. She then went on to say that Heart were a waaaay better girl band.
Just by comparing those two images of The Runaways and Heart it is easy to tell which band is the most awesomest. What does that Heart album cover say to you? It says to me Robin Hood and Sherwood Forest.
Now The Runaways picture up top is another matter. Joan and Cherie’s matching outfits and poses? Awesome. The hair-does? Awesome. The car? Awesome.
How does Heart respond? A carriage and a man in pantaloons???
Well strictly speaking Heart are NOT an all girl band, but granted when I think of Heart I think, like with The Runaways, of a blonde chick and a brunette chick.
So hears Heart doing Barracuda.
In keeping with the rock theme I have gone a little rock fashion with my look while I was digging through my records this morning.
