Avril Lavigne Does "Alice": One of These Things Just Doesn't Belong Here

Avril Lavigne, Canadian skater gurrl, divorcee, and pop songstress is making her comeback with a new album. The first track "Alice" is, you guessed it, set to be the main theme song for Tim Burton's upcoming Alice in Wonderland. While this is not what I envision for Alice, especially an Alice done Burton style (and perhaps Burton's isn't what I had in mind either) it's hard not to see this as an attempt to nurture the interest of the Twilight audience machine (and doing it much worse I might add), just as in this post Avatar world, everything suddenly needs a 3D treatment. That, or I'm just having flashbacks to my high school days when Avril was the quintessential billboard pop representation of fake teen alterna girl, all bark with artfully mismatched Chucks and pink dyed hair.

Wilde.Dash and I were thinking the same thing, and writing it at about the same time. While I thought we were just talking Avril, over at Pop Candy Arcade, she uncovers the other horrifying choices (and not in the good Burtony way) some music editor made, in addition to giving you some better suggestions for your own mix.
