Theme Song: Allegra Rosenberg

“Obsessive”

This month’s theme song comes to us from the awesome Allegra Rosenberg. Allegra is 16 years old and loves writing songs about her many obsessions, which include Doctor Who and Homestuck.

The song is called “Obsessive,” and that is an appropriate name because we are now obsessed with it and with Allegra Rosenberg.

Obsessive

    Actually, quite a lovely and catchy song.
    Does Allegra have a blog?
    And also, how is it that you download the song?
    I’m internet impaired?

      And if you click on the first time we mention Allegra’s name, you’ll go to her YouTube page.

  • Jessica Vixenelle February 7th, 2012 12:04 AM

    Oh my goodness I’ve followed Allegra forever on Tumblr and I saw her on the front page of Rookie and I squealed oh my GOODNESS!

    • Cruicked February 7th, 2012 11:18 AM

      Same! I’ve been listening to her songs on youtube and following her tumblr for ages! When I saw that she was going to be on Rookie I got so excited!

  • taylortarantino February 7th, 2012 12:07 AM

    Wow this is far by my favourite theme song! WHOVIANS UNITE!

    • Miarele February 7th, 2012 4:48 AM

      QUICK, TO THE TARDIS EVERYONE!!!

  • EmilyD February 7th, 2012 12:07 AM

    OMG It’s “Stuff Homestuck Fans Say” girl! “HUSSIEEEEEEEE!”

    • EmilyD February 7th, 2012 12:16 AM

      She did the fantastic update song too didn’t she? So good.

  • youngfridays February 7th, 2012 12:14 AM

    Seriously though, this song describes my life in under three minutes.

  • TessAnnesley February 7th, 2012 12:14 AM

    OMG THE BEST

  • Bren February 7th, 2012 12:45 AM

    Ahhh, Doctor Who.
    I was considering sending in something about my obsession for it this month.

    I only started watching at the end of August and finished by the end of September.

    It completely changed my life.

    This is such a good song.

    • timelady February 7th, 2012 6:25 PM

      Doctor Who seriously changes lives. I believe in the Doctor, just as he believes in his companions. I remember the first episode I watched was in the first series with Rose and the 9th Doctor. I thought it was weird (since I apparently had no taste as a 13 year old) and then got hooked upon catching reruns two years later.

  • marineo February 7th, 2012 1:01 AM

    HOMESTUCK! :)))))))))

  • lxa February 7th, 2012 1:07 AM

    This is an awesome song. This also accurately describes my life filled with obsession with things no one I know understands.

    Such a great song – and Allegra has such pretty hair! :)

    OMG I love her! Doctor Who for the win! I also want the posters in her room. Especially John Barrowman and David Tennant posters.

    • Miarele February 7th, 2012 4:51 AM

      I knoooow, I was like ” I want her wall (!!!)”

  • sedgwick February 7th, 2012 4:04 AM

    I listened to this song like 5 times! So cute. I never understood the thing with Doctor Who (it always freaked me out when i was little) but I have a bunch of friends who are big fans, and are constantly referencing it, memorising the chronological order of the names of the actors who have played the Doctor thus far etc etc. One time they all wore red Fez’s to school, a reference i didn’t understand but I’m guessing Rookie-Reading-Doctor-Who fans will!

      Have you watched it again recently? Your friends sound awesome :P

  • Miarele February 7th, 2012 4:46 AM

    Doctor Who is totally one of my current obsessions! The series is just so unique and wacky I just can’t stop watching, and I have such a girl crush on Karen Gillan a.k.a Amy Pond. She has the best effortless style ever! One of my resolution is to be The Doctor’s next companion hahaha =))

  • anikeiko February 7th, 2012 9:21 AM

    My favorite lines:

    “Watch this thing, watch it now
    I don’t think that you really know
    how much I
    love it.”

    “Read this thing, read it now
    I don’t think that you really know
    how much I
    love it.”

    I always feel like that when I read/watch/(listen to) some fantastic. I think about people who may also find it interesting, but even then, I find myself hesitant to share it in case they don’t really *get* it.

    I’m glad that you’re passionate, and multi-interested, Allegra Rosenberg!

  • burn-your-flesh February 7th, 2012 11:05 AM

    THIS IS SO COOL. Awesome song and voice.

  • izzybee February 7th, 2012 11:44 AM

  • Alice123 February 7th, 2012 1:45 PM

    Haha, Matt Smith looking all fit in the background!

  • MissKnowItAll February 7th, 2012 4:16 PM

    Damn, she’s talented and pretty. I sort of teared up though because I also had a friend named Allegra who loved to sing. She passed away last year but this reminded me so much of her.

  • ib February 7th, 2012 4:50 PM

    i can’t download the song :(

  • aerogirl February 7th, 2012 7:29 PM

    Love :]

  • kitterfly February 7th, 2012 7:55 PM

    HOORAH! I absolutely adore Allegra, and have been quietly stalking her for months >:)
    So happy to see such a fabulously talented teenage girl on here!!! (I mean, not that there aren’t already tons!!)

  • imgoingtotakeashowernow February 8th, 2012 6:47 PM

    Her hair is amaaaaazing!! And the song could not be more perfect. I’ve listened to it 5 times, at least. The melody is fab.

    Well I think that was the go ahead for my Sherlock rap… I surely can’t sing or play a single instrument besides the kazoo?

  • APandaMandaBear February 9th, 2012 11:21 PM

    I love this song – it’s just really honest. I really like that.

  • Memily February 10th, 2012 5:25 PM

    I think you are my long lost twin.
