High School Musical star Ashley Tisdale is releasing an EP of ’80s cover songs titled Degree Girl: OMG! Jams which is probably my favorite album title since Romeo! TV Show (The Season), if not The Big Problem ≠ The Solution, The Solution = Let It Be. “Time After Time,” “Too Many Walls,” “Heaven Is A Place On Earth,” “Shadows Of The Night,” “I Wanna Dance With Somebody,” and the legendary “Never Gonna Give You Up” are all essayed on this effervescent turd, which lacks the thoughtful shadings and deconstructive allure of a DJ Sammy track.
Here’s a snippet of “Never Gonna Give You Up”…
And the entirety of “Time After Time,” which may be better than Sugar Ray’s version of the chestnut, if no one else’s.
The armpits of teenage girls deserve so much better than this.
