A couple of weeks back I posted about a chav mockney toe-rag called Jamie T who’s song, If you got the money, I couldn’t get out of my head.
Since then Mr T has been far and away my most listened to song but The Automatic’s Monster has been seriously challenging its poll position.
I love the song (Monster) but I hadn’t seen the video yet so I went to the YouTube and checked it out. If you’re reading this in a feedreader, click though here and watch the video.
It’s a very cool Beastie Boys meets the Monkees type production with a very funny cameo from Sasquatch. Well worth a few minutes of your time.
However, I also found a second version, this time an animated Lego version that’s absolutely brilliant! Here it is for your viewing pleasure –
I know which one I prefer…
While I’m on the subject of music, can anyone recommend some cool live cover versions of songs done in different genres? I’m thinking Nelly Furtado’s version of Crazy or Travis’ version of Hit Me Baby One More Time?
*UDPATE* The search is over. This is the definitive cross-genre cover version. Richard Cheese doing Snoop Dog’s Gin and Juice. Fantastic. I’ve already forgotten what the original sounds like.
