Josie Cotton - He Could Be The One

Seeing the name Josie Cotton shook up the old memory banks. She was very big in the Los Angeles music scene in the early 80s. Aside from being probably the sexiest singer on the scene, she had an awful lot of talent and potential. I have long thought she made a big mistake with her first single, Johnny, Are You Queer?; she got blasted from all sides: the Religious Right conservatives considered the song a recruitment tool to turn straights gay, and the gay rights activists considered the song insulting; added to this was the reluctance of some radio stations to play the single. Its really all too bad; Josie could have been Katy Perry, in terms of popularity; an irony is Josie was invited to sing Johnny at a Los Angeles area Gay Pride Festival a few years back; some of the same people who excoriated her earlier were now celebrating her and her song; a further irony is Katy Perry made her fame singing I Kissed A Girl; thirty or so years do make a difference, I guess...

Josie is still singing and is still stunningly beautiful. Here she is singing with the Ventures:

Thinking about Josie (give me a minute........OK, I'm back now...) also reminded me of another performer who also had a couple of novelty hits in the early 8os. Actress/comedian/singer Julie Brown released this single which I would venture to guess would not get airplay today...

Don't know what her real hair color is, but she can always use this excuse...

Good choice! Like the instrumentation on this version but the vocals are better in the Bauhaus original...

Hmm, well, the anti-depressants don't seem to be working...
