Uncool Is Cool [Music Review: Countess Luann de Lesseps, Girl Code (Don’t Be Uncool)]

hqdefaultWell, who would have thought that one of the coolest jams for Summer 2015 would be from a real housewife? Countess LuAnn de Lesseps has had two singles before: “Money Can’t Buy You Class,” and “Chic, C’est la Vie,” and now she has released her third single – “Girl Code,Don’t Be Uncool,” where she extols the value of friendship, or at least her loyal friendship. Okay, while her voice is heavily processed (someone went crazy with ProTools) she has the correct attitude, and sass, and pathos required for the song. She infuses drama in simple lines, and combine that with a retro-disco beat, and you find yourself singing along to the infectious chorus. And you know what else is great? She is in on the joke – I don’t think she has delusions of being the next Aretha Franklin. Damn, I don’t think she has delusions of being the next Pia Zadora.  So sit back, relax, and dance the night away to Countess LuAnn! (Oh, and by the way, I am loving her this season on The Real Housewives Of New York)
