alexandra ewing is on the internet.

twenty-something philadelphia-area online diarist comes home in the midst of a total breakdown and eventually makes good, to an electrifying soundtrack of '60s power pop.

it's the feel-good movie of the summer.

I’ve heard a lot of terrible versions of this song, so it’s nice to hear a good one for once.

I assume that “Bang Bang Bang” is going to be my song of summer every summer, but I think I’ll detour this year to the re-recording of “Record Collection.” No hard feelings, “Bang Bang Bang.” You’re a close second.

Mark Ronson, “Valerie (feat. Amy Winehouse)”

Today I listened to this song a billion times, went out to dinner, and then came home to listen to it a billion times more.

Plus, dude is so handsome and dashing it hurts my feelings. The wink at 1:31 in this video makes my inner 13-year-old girl gasp and swoon. (My inner 13-year-old girl is very, very close to the surface.)
Dave Holmes sums perfectly the minor cherry on top reason I love the video for “Bang Bang Bang.”

What comes up when I try to watch “The Bike Song” on MarkRonson’s official YouTube channel. And you know what? I am okay with this.

Abstract

On the plane on my brain ‘bout to the do the show
There was a point this summer where I almost wore this song out by listening to it on repeat for at least a week, running up the play count in the triple digits in about a day on iTunes, not including the innumerable times I viewed it on YouTube. Thankfully I can listen to it again, and also cling to it in an attempt to remember Mark Ronson’s once-great hair and to forget that “The Bike Song” exists (verses should never be the hook in a song, because that leaves the chorus unlistenable).
And I reblog this entirely because I am fairly sure I still have friends who haven’t heard this song, even though this blew up on my dashboard in June and July, or maybe only heard it once, and didn’t get what the fuss was about. And yes, listening to it right now would make you terribly late to this, but wouldn’t you much rather live a life with this song in it than one without? I think so.

"I’ve had bang bang bang stuck in my head all day"
