Jenny O. -- "Well OK Honey" (MP3)

201110192048Sound It Out #3: Jenny O. -- "Well OK Honey"
It’s not easy to find information about Jenny O. Her bio tells us that her father is a scientist/wedding singer and that she began playing music at an early age. That’s pretty much it.

Mysterious origins aside, “Well OK Honey” is the rare song that is both incredibly groovy and packs an emotional punch. It’s written from the perspective of a wise beyond-her-years teenage girl to her age-inappropriate lover.  Jenny’s voice is sultry and bluesy as she sings “I am a have a child.” Boogie style guitars, maracas, handclaps and a couple of strangely-paced solos add to the hard-to-categorize awkward/hot tone. This could be a strong contender for wrongest strip club song of the year.

Jenny O.'s debut album is rumored to come out sometime in 2012.

Download an MP3 of Jenny O.'s "Well OK Honey"


  1. Somebody ain’t been in a strip club for a long, long time, if you think this is the sort of music they play. Not enough BOOM BAP or hair metal guitar.

    Song’s ok, I guess. But a real strip club anthem is something simple, something that dares you to not remember the chorus.

  2. I saw Jenny O open for Ben Harper this summer, she had an enigmatic cool quality and boy she can write great lyrics. Nice to see she is getting more support.

  3. Good pick!

    And why are there only a few Amy Seidenwurm posts on BoingBoing? Moar, encore — get to work!

  4. Sound It Out #3: Jenny O. — “Well OK Honey”

    OK, I sounded it out.  Is it supposed to be a pun or something?  If so, I don’t get it.

  5. Or listen to her EP and other stuff here:

  6. nice song – thanks boing boing for finding someone outside the music and music critic businesses to turn us on to good music!!!

  7. I first heard of Jenny O. from a BB post awhile back… she’s on that collection of Buddy Holly tribute covers that was blogged here. Her contribution definitely stood out as among the best ones of the bunch, you really felt the spirit of the original.

  8. It was just OK for me…didn’t really sound like anything that most people couldn’t record in their bedroom these days.

  9. The last few lines do a fine job of conjuring up the searing pain a man feels when the too-young one walks casually away after planting a knife in his heart.  I wish I hadn’t read the lyrics.
