Song of the Day – “Voo Doo” – Rachel Sweet

Akron-born Rachel Sweet signed to Stiff Records in 1978, when she was only 16. Four years later, when she released this single, she was no longer a teenager, and her “jailbait” marketing was fading.

But her career would receive a jump start later from one John Waters, who used Sweet to sing the theme songs for his movies Hairspray and Cry Baby.
