Lene Lovich on My 2015 Christmas Countdown

Lene Lovich's "New Toy" became associated with the holiday season, officially, when Target used the song  in its tv ads in the 1990s.

The song, ironically, is about material addiction and was written by Thomas Dolby ("She Blinded Me with Science"). Lene blinds us with neediness in this tune.

Upbeat New Age dance music, Lene performed this at clubs internationally, even at NYC's Studio 54!

For the crass materialism in all of us. By the way, I'm sick of the Hoover!
