Saturday tunes: Emotions come I don't know why

I spent a fair amount of time last season watching "Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles" and staring at Catherine Weaver, head of ZeiraCorp and known to only a few as a T-1001 unit (who had killed the real Weaver and assumed her identity--for what nefarious purpose we could only imagine). She was obviously a bit of casting from straight out of left field--the noncorporate eye liner, the oddly robotic performance, the strange and angular features, the Scottish accent (although, in fairness, the original Terminator had an Austrian accent). But who the hell was she and why did I recognize her?

Well, she's Shirley Manson, front singer for Garbage. That's who.

Ooh, amore, chiamami chiamami.
Oo, appelle-moi mon cherie, appelle-moi
Anytime anyplace anywhere anyway
Anytime anyplace anywhere any day, anyway
