Although she states it is going to be a “make up” record it’s probably not going to be an album full of lip stick and mascarra hints and tips – but what if it was? What would I include on a cosmetics mix-tape
Hole – “Celebrity Skin”
A brilliant punchy track from Courtney Love and her band with the most epic line being “when I wake up, in my make up.
Jedward – “Lipstick”
The crazy, big haired Irish twins who took this song all the way to Eurovision – go Jedward!
Stephen Gately – “Bright Eyes”
Of course the original was by Art Garfunkel but I like any excuse to get Stephen remembered
Daphne & Celeste – “U.G.L.Y.”
Do you remember these two annoying as hell girls? Well, here’s the downside to not getting to know your “make up”. It reminds me of a joke – why do women wear make up and perfume? Because they are ugly and the stink!
Let’s leave the last two tracks to R.E.M…
R.E.M. – “Crush With Eyeliner”
I’ve never actually tried “guyliner” but never say never
R.E.M. – “Shiny Happy People”
Having never worn make up and being a grrrr man I sometimes sweat a little. I get shiny – but I’m happy!
I couldn’t end this post without sharing the amazing Adele’s new song…
What about you, what songs would you include on a cosmetics mix-tape?
