Download: Come As You Are – Nirvana
Lifetime’s Witches of East End (starring Channing Tatum’s pretty life wifey) premiered on October 6th, did any of you dear readers watch it? We had a reader request (via our request form) to know what song was in the commercial and we are happy to provide you with that information. But first, let’s talk about witches. Are they the new vampire? They seem to be everywhere with American Horror Story’s: Coven (Brittany wrote about that here and here), Wizards of Waverly Place (OK so this show has ended but it still counts, also what’s the difference between a wizard and a witch?) and Beautiful Creatures witches are certainly blowing up the airwaves. I distinctly remember watching Hocus Pocus and The Craft when I was a wee lass so perhaps it’s just a cyclical thing and vampires will make a come back. Are witches and vampires the only sexy monsters? Why don’t we have lots and lots of TV shows about Swamp Thing? He could be a misunderstood guy in the workplace just trying to get by. Ohhh Swahp Thing spilled coffee on his newly pressed shirt, Swamp Thing angry.
The song in the Witches of East End commercial is Come as You are covered by Masha. You might know this song as Nirvana‘s 1992 hit from their album Nevermind – Nirvana. Masha’s sultry voice makes gives this cover a nice little witchy change. Why should you like Masha? Well on her Tumblr she describes herself as someone who steals candy from children and makes music and on her Facebook she describes herself as a bada**. This Latvian girl has some moxie and I like the cut of her jib. Her debut EP, Stupid, Stupid Dreams, will be released soon so be sure to pick it up! I also really dig her cover of Miley Cyrus‘s 2013 hit Wrecking Ball – Bangerz (Deluxe Version)…
… Speaking of which… have you see the version Miley did with the The Roots? I highly recommend giving it a looksie.
