9 July 2021 - Pete Yorn & Scarlett Johansson - Relator

Today, I'm phoning it in.   

You see, today is the day that the Marvel Cinematic Universe returns from its forced pandemic hiatus, with the movie Black Widow.  The title character is, of course, played by actress Scarlett Johansson, and it is a movie everyone wanted for YEARS.

What you didn't know you wanted was to hear her musical collaboration with Pete Yorn.  Recorded in 2006, the album was not released until 2009 - the year before Iron Man 2 was released.   Their collaboration was seriously good - and as much as I am making more Black Widow jokes than Captain Marvel jokes that I made yesterday, Scarlett Johansson is an excellent, nuanced vocalist.

Their album didn't do great in the States, but was certified gold in France.  Here they are performing the song for French television in 2009.
