Alanis's Humps
« on: April 03, 2007, 05:33:09 PM »
My favorite reason to hate Canada has done her version (a parody) of "My Humps."  Scary.

Silliness of the video aside, I still find it extremely difficult to listen to her grating voice.

Dang, it hurts....

  Male rock stars are always allowed to look like hell with the only difference being how many days of growth they wear for their faux-beards.  But there seems to be a trend with female singers tarting up their look.   I guess with this video you can add Alanis to the list even if it does seem to be done for parody.  Nelly Furtado seems to have decided to look hotter and the new look they're promoting for the next Avril Lavinge CD seems to be more of the same.  Maybe someday it will be someone I actually like to listen to.

Wow. Alanis has a sense of humor!? I thought her range of musical emotion ranged from bitter to angry. Guess her "You Can't Do That On Television" days left a mark. :^)

Better executions of the same basic idea; Nina Gordon's Straight Outta Compton, Frazier Chorus's Anarchy in the UK and Tori Amos's Smells Like Teen Spirit.

And, as a bonus,  none of the above have an affected falsetto yodel-vibrato to make your ears bleed.

I think that's pretty funny, especially since she's exaggerating the whinyness of her normal singing style to further the joke. The video was kind of overselling it, though.

Also, it's remarkably similar to the joke here: http://forums.somethingawful.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=2348811

And yeah, ironic covers have definitely been done before. I like sincere covers of surprising styles better; Ben Folds version of Dre's Bitches Ain't Shit is both hilarious, actually a good song in its own right, and fairly affectionate towards the original.

I still think the Gourds' version of "Gin & Juice" is pretty funny.

What an odd choice, especially with Bryan Adams and Nickleback around.

I've never thought she was a BAD artist. I dig more than one of her songs. She just seems (From her music) like the kind of woman who would kick you square between the legs with very little provocation. :^)

I believe that title belongs to Fiona Apple.

  I have to say that this is the most confusing thing I've ever seen. And I live with Pak so I've seen a ton of confusing things over the years.

  Is this supposed to be funny? I feel lost. And cold. And alone.
