What we have here is a classic case of serendipity, as like the
of Serendip I went looking for one thing and found quite another.
I've been doing this MySpace marketing thing for a friend, looking for
fans of thrillers who might be persuaded to check out his most
excellent contributions to the genre, when what should my MySpace
Googling find? Only Jon Rubin, who started his Power Pop band back in
junior high, had a minor hit with a cover of
Think We're Alone Now and is still touring and rocking (or
whatever the pop equivalent is) more than three decades later. For
someone who gets bored doing the same job for more than a couple of
years, I have to admire their sticktoitiveness. And also their music,
which is both nostalgia-inducing and catchy as all get out.
