Oh Lord, It's Another Weepie Old Bolshie-Style Early Clue to the New Direction

From his self-titled 1993 solo album, here's Cheap Trick heartthrob lead singer Robin Zander, and a killer cover of unsung powerpop hero Rob Laufer's "Reactionary Girl."

Or as we at Casa Simels call it "The Christine O'Donnell Story." Heh.

Already dated political cheap shots aside, I have to say that "Baby, have a bitchen summer, see you next fall" is definitely in my Top Ten list of Great Rock 'n' Roll Kiss-Off lines.

And as per usual, a coveted PowerPop no-prize will be awarded to the first reader who gleans the clip's relevance to the theme of tomorrow's Weekend Listomania.
