J is for...Jessie's Girl and Jealous
Happy Saturday, fellow A-Zers! I hope you're all enjoying a well deserved weekend and patting yourself on the back for making it through week two of the challenge. Today I'm heading over to Cherry City Comic Con (not my choice...the BF is kind of a nerd), so it shall be interesting. I know exactly 1 name on the list of attendees...Naomi Grossman aka Pepper from American Horror Story. Regardless, today's all about the letter J.
J is for "Jessie's Girl" and "Jealous"
"Jessie's Girl" - Rick Springfield
This is my 80s jam of choice. I built a Pandora station around it. I bought an 80s compilation disc because of it. I crank the volume up on the radio whenever it comes on. I watch 13 Going on 30 (which I love) and can't wait for the scene in the cab when this song plays. Basically, I love "Jesse's Girl".
*Fun Fact: "Jessie's Girl" actually garnered Rick Springfield the Grammy for Best Male Rock Vocal Performance in 1982, it was ranked the #1 song when MTV launched in 1981, and was named one of the 100 Greatest Songs of the 80s in 2006.
"Jealous" - Nick Jonas
I can't believe I'm including this song...and I'm kind of embarrassed to admit how much I like it. Ugh. This song works. It just does. Aside from the atrocious video (it's bad, people), it's a catchy tune. Damn you, Nick Jonas!
*Lyrics: "It's not your fault that they hover / I mean no disrespect / It's my right to be hellish / I still get jealous"
