"This ep is perhaps the best way to bet introduced to the 2 Nice Girls. It shows that they could take any song and make it sweet and wonderful without losing the song's integrity. It also shows their wonderful use of covers. The speed racer theme is perhaps the best theme song ever covered on a rock album. They wisely concluded this ep with their best known song,"I spent my last $10.00 (0n Birth Control and Beer)" which is the song that hooks everyone to the girls. I miss this band."
It's been far too long since...

"I heard this band, and this EP. 2 Nice Girls were an incredible group, mixing beatiful voices, excellent musicianship, and a good dose of humor into their folk rock songs. This album contains 5 covers and 1 original, and since there's no track listing, I'll provide one:

1. I Feel (Like Makin') Love
2. Bang Bang
3. Top of the World
4. Speed Racer
5. Cotton Crown
6. I Spent My Last $10 on Birth Control & Beer

Each song is awesome in it's own way. The first track is a great interpretation of the Bad Company original, but who'd have thought it'd make a great coutry rock song? It does. The second track, Bang Bang, is a great rockabilly number; the original performed by Janis Martin. I've never heard the original, but the cover is fun to listen to, and it's just plain kickass. Top of the World is a great homage to Caren Carpenter, and I can not only feel the affection for the person that's being sung to, but also the band's appreciation of the Carpenters' original. The cover of Speed Racer is a nice surprise, and not only is it a great arrangement, it's also far better than that silly "erotic" one. The producers would be fools not to include this song, or at least a snippet of it, in the new live-action movie. I've never heard Sonic Youth's version of "Cotton Crown", but 2 Nice Girls version of it is haunting and lyrical. Rounding out the EP is the band's original "I Spent My Last $10", a funny and poignant song of a girl trying coming to terms with her sexuality and resigning herself to a life she doesn't want.
