On… The Dating Detox, The Musical 4 Replies Imagine if life was like Glee – not for the daily faux-climax (the club is threatened! Oh, the club’s okay. The club is threatened AGAIN! Oh, what do you know, the club’s okay. Scooby Doo plots had more dramatic variation. If it wasn’t for those pesky kids, etc) but because of the spirit, humour and of course the songs. These are the songs I’d put in The Dating Detox, The Musical. Some are in this list because I listened to them a lot when I was writing it, and a few of them slipped in to the copy. Some, I just think are ace songs. And some are featured in the trailer. (Haven’t seen the trailer? Dude! You are missing out. Click here.) I’ve had all of them in a special Detox playlist for awhile, and it’s high time I shared them with you. The Dating Detox Playlist Lisztomania – Phoenix Get Over It – Ok Go Here I Go Again – WhitesnakeI Get Around – DragonetteDancing With Myself Nouvelle Vague (the Billy Idol version is great too)Short Skirt/Long Jacket – Cake That’s Not My Name – The Ting Tings99 Problems – Jay-Z Sweet Child O’ Mine – Guns N’ RosesBad Reputation – Joan Jett & The BlackheartsDon`t Ask Me – Ok Go Only the Good Die Young – Billy Joel Kung Fu Fighting – Carl DouglasOur Lips Are Sealed – The Go-Go’sMy Delirium – LadyhawkeYou’re So Damn Hot – Ok Go All Night Long – Lionel RichieLove Is a Battlefield – Pat BenatarIf You Leave – OMDHere Comes Your Man – The PixiesHappy Together – The Turtles* It’s a pretty standard Gemma playlist: a bit of angry rock-pop, a bit of new wave and hair metal, a bit of OK Go. I am nothing if not predictable, as my mother always says. By the way – whoever recommended The Like on the last iPod post, thank you very much. I The Love them. (Sigh.) So bring it on, my people. Any more Detox-y songs to recommend? *By the way, this was one of my wedding songs in April. Everyone sang it during the ceremony. It is impossible to not feel joyful when singing this (admittedly mildly ridiculous) song at the top of your voice – try it.
