La rubrica Perle Dimenticabili tira fuori pezzi assurdamente sentiti e addirittura conservati per motivi a noi sconosciuti (in verità lo so, appena avuto internet ero in preda allo scaricamento massivo di qualunque cosa esistesse da scaricare) nel mio personale etere.
Ma il mondo è così vario che a qualcuno ste schifezze piaceranno pure!
Vediamo oggi cosa tiriamo fuori...
Nina Gordon - Tonight And The Rest Of My Life
E per questa amici miei non saprei proprio... l'unica spiegazione che mi do è che la tizia nel video era discretamente carina... MTV? Boh! Ah non è parente del mitico Shel Shapiro.
Se conoscete in che modo possa essere arrivata in Italia... let me know!
Nina Rachel Gordon Shapiro (born November 14, 1967) is an American singer-songwriter. She is probably best known for being vocalist and guitarist of alternative rock band Veruca Salt. She left the band in 1998 due to creative differences, pursuing a solo career and releasing two albums, Tonight and the Rest of My Life (2000) and Bleeding Heart Graffiti (2006).
Nina Gordon left Veruca Salt in early 1998. Post kept the Veruca Salt name because the pair had an agreement that if one of them ever left the band the other would get to continue using the name. Resolver was released in 2000, the first Gordon-less Veruca Salt album.
Soon after leaving Veruca Salt, Gordon demoed solo material in Boston with friends Kay Hanley and Michael Eisenstein from the band Letters to Cleo. In 1998, she sang on James Iha's solo album Let It Come Down on the song "Beauty." Shortly after, she began recording with Eight Arms producer Bob Rock.
The album, now titled Tonight and the Rest of My Life, was finished in early 1999 and was set to be released by the Outpost Records label, owned by Geffen Records, in August 1999. However, not all went smoothly, as the merger of Geffen Records with Interscope Records forced Outpost Records to fold, leaving Gordon without a label.
Gordon did not remain without a label for long, however, as Warner Bros. Records signed her a few months later. Originally scheduled to be released in January 2000, Tonight was finally released on June 27, 2000. The first single, also titled "Tonight and the Rest of My Life," did well on radio and has since been included in commercials for hit movies such as Chocolat and The Notebook in addition to an appearance on an episode of Charmed.
The second single "Now I Can Die," performed more poorly, but the third single, a radio-only single titled "2003," actually performed better despite having little promotion and no video.
Nel 2013 è ritornata nella line-up del gruppo Veruca Salt.
È moglie del musicista Jeff Russo, membro dei Tonic.
