I have two Jane Wiedlin single in my possession at this point. This one and Blue Kiss. I'm saving Blue Kiss for another time.
As a kid I never really followed the Go-Go's or the exploits of Belinda and Jane after the band. However as an adult I have a great affection for the Go-Go's and I'm just not discovering Jane's solo work.
This song isn't what I thought it was going to be. The song is even poppier that anything the Go-Go's ever did. I find that surprising because I had thought she left the Go-Go's to be heard as a singer songwriter. This song however just seems like kind of a generic pop dance song. There's nothing wrong with that, but it is just unexpected.
The tracks are very 80's sounding, but that doesn't mean they aren't still good. In fact when I was digitizing this, my daughter thought it was great. She was dancing all around the living room. I think that is a pretty good judge that it isn't too dated as far as pop songs go. She's up on all the latest pop songs on Radio Disney.
So give it a listen. If you don't like the first mix you've got 4 others to try and then "Song Of The Factory", which has synths that sound like a New Order song. I don't know if "The Factory" is supposed to be a reference to "The Factory" in England that is connected to New Order, but it does seem like an odd coincidence.
