My Humps

Until last week, I was convinced the Black Eyed Peas, My Humps, was the worst song ever conceived. Its thought-provoking lyrics such as, “What you gon’ do with all that ass? All that ass inside them jeans?” is nothing short of lyrical libretto.

Well, as it turns out, the best of the worst now has a challenger — My Humps, redux. That’s right folks; My Humps is back in the form of Alanis Morissette.

The girl who likes to go down on you in a theater, has decided to cover My Humps in her own special way. By special, I mean as dreadful as the original, yet somehow, even more grating. I think she’s attempting to parody, or make some statement or create some kind of metaphor or something, but I was too busy wiping the blood from my eardrums and eye sockets to fully understand her intent.

I have been kind enough to provide links to the original and cover, allowing you to compare and contrast, while choosing the winner for yourself. Only in this case there are no winners, only a sad emptiness in my stomach and bleeding from my ears. Umm, enjoy?

Oh, and just in case you want to follow along, here are the lyrics

    It was released on April 1st as a bad April Fools joke, at least that is what I heard.

    I am going back to my isolated musical world.
