For those of you who haven’t had the pleasure of hearing this band name before, may we present to you: BANANARAMA.


The Carrie Diaries season 1 finale airs tonight on The CW. The title of the finale is, “Kiss Yesterday Goodbye.” And the songs? Uh, they are a-perfect! (Hopefully you are hearing that in a Sarah Jessica Parker voice.)

The Carrie Diaries Music – Songs from “Kiss Yesterday Goodbye”

John Waite – Missing You*
Bananarama – Cruel Summer
Siouxsie and the Banshees – Cities in Dust
Howard Jones – What is Love?
Bryan Adams – Heaven

*Best played loud in a car with the windows down. It is the anthem of the EMPOWERED, probably still slightly devastated, soul.

Note: Links will take you to a YouTube of the song.

As of this time, has The Carrie diaries been renewed for a season 2? No! The CW needs to rectify this. It’s worlds better than Arrow or Beauty and the Beast! Amy. B Harris, we’re rooting for you! And seriously guys, how cute is Annasophia Robb?
