Friday Night Video: Cocktail Slippers - "Go Get It"

A recent sampler download had a song by this group on it. I went looking for a video of that song but apparently it's not available. So I picked this one instead.

When I reflect on the many groups who were popular during my formative years, I sometimes think I got cheated. Both this and the other one ("You Do Run") are going on my general favorites playlist.

Ignore the gratuitous prop-guitar smashing at the end. It's just silly.*

*I don't know who they think they are, smashing a perfectly good guitar.


  1. I don't remember that band, but that's a pretty cool song.

  2. I guess I didn't word my post clearly. I didn't mean to say they were an old band from when I was younger, I meant to say they are both way cooler and hotter than any all-female band I can remember from back then. Also their music is way better. This is a current band. They're from Norway.

  3. I liked how the girl pulled her face off of, well, her face. Catchy tune.

  4. I have trouble imagining them in twenty years or so, showing up on some "reality" TV shows, trying to reclaim some of their lost fame.

  5. Hey - Just for the record: That guitar was no good. It was already broken - we never smash perfectly good guitars!!! Thanks for all the good words. Keep on rocking y´all!
    Love, Rocket Queen - Cocktail Slippers.

  6. Hey, thanks for the comment, Rocket Queen! But that's why I called it a "prop" guitar. It looked like there was already something wrong with it before being smashed.
