Maybe it was the Mott's Apple Juice or Ritz Crackers commercials. Or perhaps it was the one for Travelers Insurance. The song was used in “The House Bunny” and “The Decoy Bride” as well as in “Parenthood,” “Ugly Betty” and “90210.” Wherever you heard it, the point is that you've probably heard the catchy cut "Be OK" somewhere in the past six years since it was released.
The infectious and uplifting song was written and recorded by Ingrid Michaelson, a New York-based indie pop queen whose easy-to-like music has a way of growing on you lickety-split. Her vocals are soft but crisp and her musicianship is spot-on.
If any of this is making your ears tingle, try watching one of her videos. Click here to see her latest video to the song "Girls Chase Boys," the treatment of which pays quirky homage to Robert Palmer's "Simply Irresistible" video. Key word: quirky.
And if that flips your pancake, you can see Michaelson live on Tuesday, August 12th at Sokol Auditorium.
