Cover Battle – “I’m Too Sexy” June 13, 2014

 

I’m Too Sexy” is a song by Right Said Fred – British brothers Fred and Richard Fairbrass. Two buff bald dudes flexing and gyrating to a crazily catchy beat and hilariously self-involved lyrics parodying the whole “fabulous dahling, make love to the camera, etc” world of modeling and fashion. You gotta love it.

 

It sounds like the Saint Etienne version is “sampling” the original and then having the boys rework the lyrics in some parts. It’s got an electronic dance club vibe with the synthesizers and all the overproduced throbbiness.

 

Saint Etienne’s vocals are more airy and lightweight than the Fairbrass boys, which makes the song seem even more disposable. Except – it’s survived all this time, so how disposable is it, really?

 

Um … this next one, by Alvin and The Chipmunks is not cute. It’s taking childhood into a very odd and disturbing place. I think I need a hug now …

 

Blogger Perez Hilton. Ugh. Moving on.

 

Now William Shatner does it as only Shatner can. Actually he was doing it in character on the short-lived $#*! My Dad Says. I think if he was being, well, full-on … Shatner it would have been much more awesome.

 

I think it’s pretty cool that the boys reworked the song as “I’m Too Smurfy” for the Smurfs 2 movie. They’re older now, still bald and buff, but this time they’re fully clothed in the video – no mesh, no shirtless. It’s cute.

 

They also performed it live on Last Week Tonight With John Oliver. The song was reworked by the show’s writers as a political statement against the regime of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

THE DAILY SHOW

 

 

 

 

I get that Fox opposes the Syria peace plan because its modus operandi is to foment dissent in the form of a relentless, irrational contrarianism to Barack Obama and all things Democratic to advance its ultimate objective of creating a deliberately misinformed body politic whose fear, anger, mistrust and discontent is the manna upon which it sustains its parasitic, succubus like existence, BUT… sorry, I blacked out for a second I was saying something?

Hmm … how can I put this?

 

Don’t invade Syria.

 

Don’t invade Syria.

FUCKING. INVADE.

SYRIA!
