This quirky heartbreak single from the British singer Kate Nash's third album finds her so distraught that she can't even enjoy the simple pleasures in life, like free drinks and dolphin kisses. Her mood is so dour that she can't even receive vitamin D from the sun, putting her at increased risk of cardiovascular disease and rickets. Nash wrote the song while on vacation, which might explain the lyric about writing postcards to the object of her obsession.
The video was directed by Aram Rappaport, who also made a movie called Syrup in 2013. The clip features a group of synchronized swimmers.
"Abracadabra" was inspired by Diana Ross and The Supremes. Steve Miller first met the girl group when they performed together on NBC's Hullabaloo in 1966, and he wrote the lyrics after spotting Diana Ross skiing in the mountains years later.
Robin Thicke and his mom, Gloria Loring are the first the first ever mother-and-son to have both tallied top 10 singles on the Hot 100 as solo artists or duos. Loring reached #2 with Carl Anderson in 1986 with "Friends and Lovers" and Thicke topped the chart in 2013 with "Blurred Lines."
Country star Slim Whitman's version of the 1920s song "Rose Marie" spent 11 consecutive weeks at #1 in the UK in 1955, a record until 1991 when Bryan Adams’ "(Everything I Do) I Do It For You" spent 16 weeks at the top.
