I made a mix cd for you! Don’t you feel special? It is mostly songs with ‘fashion’ in the title or the lyrics, so I feel it has a special place on the blog. Just don’t listen to it if you don’t have an extreme proclivity for punk, like me.
Suffer for Fashion - Of Montreal
Tango Shoes - Bif Naked
Rebel Girl - Bikini Kill (“I want to take you home, I want to try on your clothes“)
Oh Bondage Up Yours! - X-Ray Spex (More of a feminist song, but bondage counts as fashion, right?)
American Leather - The Germs
Good Guys Don’t Wear White - Minor Threat
Venus in Furs - Velvet Underground (Double whammy - the title and band name is about fashion!)
Start Wearing Purple - Gogol Bordello
The List - Metric (About fashion people.)
Celebrity Skin - Hole
Fashion - David Bowie
Vengeance & Fashion - Electric Six
Harajuku Girls - Gwen Stefani (It’s a guilty pleasure.)
Bonus Track: Teenage Kicks - the Undertones (As much as I like to pretend that ‘kicks’ stands for cool shoes, it just doesn’t.
