“Light Bulb” is a song by Rachel Goodrich from her first full-length album Tinker Toys.

Lyrics:

Lightbulb hanging over my head
I hope you never gonna go out, never go out
Blue sky’s hanging over my head
I hope you never gonna go down, never go down

Halo hanging over my head
I hope you never gonna fade out, never fade out
Demons hanging over my head
I hope you never gonna come out, never come out

And rooftop hanging over my head
Oh, I hope you’re never gonna come down

Lightbulb hanging over my head
I hope you never gonna go out, never go out
Blue sky’s hanging over my head
I hope you never gonna go down, never go down

Lightbulb hanging over my head
I hope you never gonna go out, na na na na
Blue sky’s hanging over my head
I hope you never gonna go down, na na na nah

……

Her first album, Tinker Toys, was self-released in 2008 to which the New York Times dubbed her as a “queen of the Miami indie rock scene”.

Goodrich stated that the recording of the album was not planned:
“I didn’t mean to record a record. A friend of mine, George Martinez, was like, ‘Hey, come over to my place and we’ll record a song.’ His entire studio is in this bedroom, and I’m pretty much recording in his closet, you know, and the first song we recorded was ‘Ukulele Water.’ It kind of blew my mind. I was like, wow, this can really happen? It was exciting, so I was like, ‘Let’s do another one tomorrow.’ Then we recorded ‘Black Hole,’ and we kept going. I walked in with no expectations, and it was all a surprise.”

The song “Light Bulb” was featured in the episode “A Modest Proposal” of the TV series Weeds (Season 5 Episode 6), and the song also features in a Crayola commercial advertisement. A remix of the song was made by Awesome New Republic and used on the BT Infinity – “Light Streams” advert.
The songs “Light Bulb”, “Piggy Bank” & “Ukulele Water” were featured in the MTV show My Life As Liz.
