Certain Songs #1230: Naughty Sweeties – “Alice”

Album: Chinatown
Year: 1979

Speaking of being down with O.P.P. The Naughty Sweeties — a “new wave” band hailing from Los Angeles — only had one song that anybody ever heard, but it’s a corker: “Alice” is a weirdly hilarious ditty about getting cheated on.

Written by Naughty Sweeties lead singer Ian Jack, “Alice” takes much of the same viewpoint of Led Zeppelin’s “Hey Hey What Can I Do:” dude is in love with a woman is really interested in monogamy. Or at least monogamy with him.
