So Heidi's out at Panera tonight doing the NaNoWriMo which means that Anna and I have been left to our own devices for a while. We played Monopoly Junior (Princess Edition) in which she completely cleaned my clock. But we have also completely immersed ourselves in the Pointer Sisters! It all started with "Automatic."
"Automatic" is one of those Pointer Sisters songs that Jason Hare of PopDose refers to as "sung by Mr. Pointer" because of Ruth Pointer's deep vocals. Anna even said "Dad, is that a boy?" which was when I took the opportunity to point out that it was the Pointer SISTERS. I had forgotten how good of a song "Automatic" really was. This led us through a cornucopia of Pointer Sisters hits - "Jump (For My Love)", "I'm So Excited", and of course, "Neutron Dance."
But for my money, "Dare Me" is still my favorite Pointer Sisters song. And XO wrote the definitive piece on "Dare Me."
