I don’t even know what to say except that, as you could tell from the headline of this post, Vampire Weekend covered Robin Thicke’s so-gross-it’s-kind-of-good-ugh guilty pleasure jam of the summer “Blurred Lines” for BBC’s Radio 1 Live Lounge, and it’s the best thing that’s ever happened to me (not an exaggeration). Moments when I started literally crying with laughter – “You the hottest bitch in this place!!!”, when Ezra Koenig tries to do T.I.’s verse (it’s all the rhyming of “pimpin” with “pimpin”), “shake your rump!”, and every time anyone forgets the lyrics and mumbles hilariously. Dat falsetto! Now all anyone has to do to make the “Blurred Lines” hype and backlash cycle complete is make an excellent parody video full of nude gyrating men – any takers? Check it out while you brainstorm.
