You could knock us over with a feather right now.
But a long duck dong would do so much more damage.
In the category of Career Makeovers from Left Field, we’re proud to re-introduce everybody’s favorite ‘80s ginger darling, Molly Ringwald in the surprising new role of jazz singer.
Surprising because her album, Except Sometimes, is actually pretty swell.
After all, we pretty much figured we’d heard the last of Ms. Ringwald a decade or so ago but we’re so happy to have her back, even if she’s morphed into a different kind of star.
Sultry, sophisticated and sexy, she’s a singer we’d love to see in a basement lounge while we knock back dirty martinis and compare smoking jackets with the fellas.
Then, when she seductively croons a jazzed-up, slowed-down version of Don’t You (Forget About Me) we’ll remind the kids at the table that within each of us is us is a brain, an athlete, a basket case, a princess and a criminal.
And we all love jazz.
Except Sometimes, Molly Ringwald
