Shabby Shriek of the Week: Neon Hitch

Posted on 07 Oct 2011 at 2:46pm

This week we take a look at singer Neon Hitch. We’ve received remixed singles for “Bad Dog” and “Get Over U” both from her upcoming album Beg, Borrow and Steal.

WTF IS Neon Hitch?

According to her info sheet for “Get Over U,” Hitch was born in London in 1986. Apparently her family’s house burned down the day she was born. Her lighting technician dad named her Neon. She and her mother traveled in a caravan as gypsies. By age 10, she started writing poetry and lyrics. At 16, she followed a boy to India. She met Neneh Cherry, opened for 50 Cent and was friends with Amy Winehouse.

In 2008, she headed to New York, co-wrote Ke$ha’s “Blah Blah Blah” and former American Idol judge Kara DioGuardi signed her to Warner Brothers Records. From her press sheet.

“I want people to know that, yeah, time are tough, but you know what? There’s a light at the end of the tunnel. I’m living proof.”

More after the jump.

WORDS UP:

“Bad Dog” -From LyricsNotes.com:

Keep you on a leash tie you up like a bag dog
Taste me on your teeth when you bite like a bad dog
Woof like a bad dog beg be a good dog
Or I’ma put you down bang bang like a mad dog
Oh oh oh oh oh , I’m breathin’ on your skin
Oh oh oh oh oh, you feel me closin’ in
Oh oh oh oh oh

You’re just an animal that I caught
You know I’m yours so rip my clothes off
And it’s like oh oh and then we oh oh
Just come inside my cage you bad dog
You’re just an animal that I caught
You know I’m yours so rip my clothes off
And it’s like oh oh and then we oh oh
Just come inside my cage you bad dog

“Get Over U” -From LyricsLike.Blogspot.com

See, I will get over you
You’re not the man that I once knew
You’ve taken the best of me, left me with nothing good
See, I will get over you

I’m taking a chance and I’m breaking free
You’ve hid me away, now I can’t find me
And I couldn’t see all your flaws below your charm
And you cannot see all my scars your love has caused

A.V. Club

She never appears in her video for “Bad Dog.” It’s just clever lettering that got old for me a little fast.

Her “Get Over U” video is actually quite engaging. I don’t get her outfit too much, but the song and the vid worked well enough to be entertaining.

So, what do you think? Is Neon Hitch totally shab or way fab? Comment your vote.
