#songoftheday / VIDEO: THE VERONICAS – “CRUEL”

“Wish I could say you’re not the one,” begins The Veronicas’ “Cruel,” an irresistible song that sounds like perfectly modern pop rock yet also has a vintage ’80’s rock vibe, calling to mind The Cars in particular.  If I’d just heard an instrumental version of it I would have surely guessed it was a new tune by The Cars, in fact.  And that’s a good thing, The Cars being one of the best rock acts of the ’80’s.  In any case, it’s The Veronicas at their very best, an slick, polished earworm of a song if ever there was one.  And the video is pretty hot, too, with The Veronicas wearing skin tight latex (or PVC or vinyl) outfits you’d expect to see on a dominatrix.
