Read the lyrics. The song is about a girl who can't talk to her boyfriend because she's too busy drinking and dancing in a club with other guys. That sounds pretty slutty to me.

Pomplamoose's version doesn't take itself too seriously. It's just as fun, and it's a welcome clever interpretation of a song dealing with otherwise very boring themes so prevalent in pop music these days.

Can someone explain to me why "slutty" is a negative attribute for a song to possess?

A lot of pop artists these days use overtly "slutty" themes try to compensate for the boring music. Sex sells.

Personally though, I don't like slutty girls so of course I don't like slutty songs.

These days? Pop music has been like that forever. I don't really see anything so horrible about it, it is what it is.

Hello there.

Ok, this is not really a bad song originally but a lot of folks might think it a weird, even corny song to attempt a cover of.

The song is "ALL SHOOK UP" by Elvis and I did an odd-ball acoustic reggae cover of it. I did add a new chorus to make it a little more interesting. I then posted it onto a Guitarist's Forum and one guy thought it was better than the Elvis version!

Hell, he might even be right, ha,ah....

I actually thought Springsteen's original version of Blinded by the light sucked, but Manfred fixed that.

Yeah, don't a lot of people like sex in their rock n roll? I do sometimes.

I think the Obadiah Parker cover of OutKast - Hey ya is just brilliant!!

Jamie Cullum's got a talent for this

Rihanna - Please don't stop the music


Pharell ft Snoop - Frontin


Jimi Hendrix - Wind cries mary (not a bad song though)

30 Seconds To Mars covered Lady Gaga's Bad Romance.
That was skillful :)
