Throwback Thursday: Lindsay Lohan covers 'Edge of Seventeen'
Just like the white winged dove sings a song just like she’s singing, so does Lindsay Lohan.
It’s easy to forget that once upon a time, Lindsay Lohan was not only an actress but also a singer — not only belting pop tunes in her family-friendly movies (“Ultimate” was really fun!), but also releasing two albums that gave us such songs as “Rumors” and the sob-fest “Confessions of A Broken Heart (Daughter to Father).” (Ugh. That video is still a knife through the heart.)
But often forgotten among those is a cover of the Stevie Nicks classic slow burner “Edge of Seventeen,” which Lohan recorded as part of her 2005 album A Little More Personal (Raw). Happily, as of today, it’s forgotten no more! Lohan performed a karaoke version of the the song this week in New York City. TMZ — which got the footage, naturally – reports the impromptu show was for a birthday party. (For New York Republican Party Finance Committee chairman Matthew Mellon, of all people.)
The video isn’t the best quality, but Lohan looks happy and sounds pretty good — which, given her history as the human embodiment of exhaustion,we’ll count as an entry in the ‘Win’ column. Is she testing the waters for a new album, perhaps? Or maybe we’ll be treated to a musical performance or two on Lohan’s upcoming OWN reality show, which premieres next month.
Check out the karaoke footage below:
And, in classic Throwback Thursday style, here’s Lohan performing the number in 2005:
Ooh, baby, ooh, said ooh.
