The Pipettes Cover "I Think We're Alone Now"



The Pipettes can do no wrong in my book and this further proves it, because the original "I Think We're Alone Now" by Tommy James & The Shondells is oddly enough, one of my favorite songs ever. So for them to do justice to a song that I've cherished since I was ten years old just makes me love them even more than I already do, if that's even possible. Now in all fairness though, this song was kinda made for them to sing, don't ya think?

[MP3]: The Pipettes :: I Think We're Alone Now (Tommy James cover)
This vocals and lyrics of this song seem almost like they were written to be sung by The Pipettes. Their cutesy polka-dotted personalities suit really suit the song well and they bring a new life to the song that wasn't quite their in the original. This new life of course is the triple female vocal harmonies that I'll bet Tommy James had never thought would grace his wonderful song. Highly Recommended!

Bonus! Bonus! I don't think there's anyone who hasn't heard this song, but have you ever really appreciated it for the amazing pop song it is? Appreaciate! Now!

Awesome post, thanks! I found "Pull Shapes" to be a bit disappointing actually. I once heard someone refer to this song as "that Tiffany song"!

I am starting to think that the Pipettes were more endearing last year... I think they are going to seem way uncool by the end of this year-- they seem well on their way to being over-commercialized.

But I can't wait to get the CD anyway!

Hey!

All y'alls hatin' on my girl Tiff just ain't appreciated over in my neck of the woods!

If you don't appreciate her music, her mall tour and her oversized sequened sweatershirts, then I'm afraid you just don't appreciate true art!

The Pipettes track freaking rules though. Muchas gracias for the great post....

Ha ha! Yeah... I've got one too.

As for the Bangles smack talking, hey yo what's with this? Not only that, double hate because it was against the Pips!

People, can we not sit back and appreciate pop masterpieces when the fall right in our laps???

My, I thought the track was brilliant... as I do "Pull Shapes" which makes my posterior move and shake like nothing before....

I have no trouble believing that you have a Tiffany cassette. A lot of you bloggers are complete poseurs that just found out they were music experts like two years ago.

Wow, how original of the "Pipettes" to cover such a song with their unique vocals (how original!) and their look, I mean, wow. I'm blown away.

They're so retro-chic. Did I mention how original that is?

What a joke. A really bad flavor of the month. I liked the "Pipettes" when they called themselves The Donnas.
