If love is a drug, I guess we’re all sober…

Every so often, a song comes along that I become utterly obsessed with. The kind of song that has me singing off-key in the shower (for there is no other key for me to sing in) and waiting for Terry to leave the house so I can play the song over and over again, until I’m absolutely sick to death with it. This week’s obsession song is Nerina Pallot’s "Everybody’s Going to War", and just as the obsession started to fade, I had to go and find the video:

Totally obsessed, people. Also: I like her dress! (Also, again: some of the worst lip synching I ever did see!) When I grow up, I want to be Nerina Pallot, and if I can’t be Nerina Pallot, why I never want to grow up…

    I love that song too – catchy and easy to sing. Good old fashioned pop.

    Thank you, thank you, thank you!
    I’ve been hearing this song for the last couple of months and no-one could tell me who it was! Turns out it’s a song I heard once about a year ago, loved it, but could never track it down!
    Once again – Thank you!

    I seriously want her hair. Why, oh, why won’t my hair do that?

    (Also – very catchy in that “Right, so I’m the song that will take up residence in your head for the next few days, pushing that song about Washington right out. Hoo ha ha” kind of way.)

    G’day from Down Under! Again, thank you for posting this on your website. I also have been looking for who sung this song. You’ve saved me alot of time. I now have more time to enjoy this song. My shout for a beer if you ever come to Wollongong.

    It’s just the video lag on the YouTube video (the lip sync), I think. I’ve seen the video elsewhere (like on telly) and there’s no syncing issue at all. :)
