Music Monday: Girls and Dancing to New Order’s “Age of Consent”

20 Jan

Apparently today is another Blue Monday, but the New Order song we’re listening to here at TV Ate My Wardrobe is “Age of Consent.” So it’s been a little while since our last Music Monday post and the Girls soundtrack is a good place to revive this feature as it tends to be a blend of old and new songs.

There are a couple of super cringe Marnie moments in “She Said OK” and I fear that I’m going to have “What I Know” stuck in my head all day. In fact it took me the whole episode to pinpoint which version I knew before this one (Emma Bunton) and I’m kinda disappointed that HBO has put up Marnie’s autotuned version even if it made me want to crawl beneath my desk. The rendition of Rent’s “Take Me or Leave Me” later in this episode also had the same curl into a ball reaction. Step away from the microphone Marnie.

Hannah tells Adam that her birthday is always terrible and this New Order song provides one of the few truly happy moments for Hannah this week as Adam picks her up to dance. Sadly we don’t get to hear much of the song as Ray angst (I love you Ray) takes over and the song fades into the background.

Time to dance.
