Song of the Week - Stay


Stay – Shakespear’s Sister

I have an extensive music collection. As technology advances, I adapt, but I find it hard to give up the past. This means I have an iPod, but also a boombox for cassettes, a CD walkman and yes, a turntable. When I first got my iPod, I was careful not to load every CD I own onto it. This was a good call, I didn’t want to waste space, still, I go through phases musically and sometimes I need to dig through my archives. This weekend I decided I’m in a Sarah McLachlan phase. I was surprised that the Surfacing CD was not on my iPod, so I had to hunt it down. Now this is exactly why I love my tangible CDs, tapes and album; physically digging is so much more satisfying than scrolling through a huge list on my computer. A cassette caught my eye and lo and behold…it was Shakespear’s Sister 1992 Hormonally Yours. It made me remember the creepy video that went along with their mild hit, Stay. Doesn’t this have a vampire type of feel to it? This could probably be a hit again with all the recent vampire interest. I like it for the awesome vocals.


**Oh and by the way, this video post has their name spelled wrong. I'm holding the tape in my hand and it's Shakespear.
