"Music critics responded negatively to the song, deeming it a repetitive and puerile form of "sexual titillation"". Wiki (Black Eyed Peas version)

Actually it is quite wordy, and the words are pretty good. That's why AM sings it. It's a depiction of reality, like it or not. It is not endorsing reality.

That being said, I watch only South Korean videos these days. The dance is so much better. This AM video looks Stone Age in comparison.

Hip-hop is wordy. It's all about the lyrics which are typically heavily rhymed and accented with the main beat or syncopated. The music is usually minimalist. The lyrics in this song are about exploitation. With Fergie, it's bilateral. She isn't slugging anyone although she warns about "drama". With AM, there's "drama".

Leon Russell wrote and first performed "A Song for You" in 1970. It has since become an iconic classic covered by numerous artists including soul singer Donny Hathaway, Ray Charles and Karen Carpenter. Amy Winehouse recorded her version in a single take in the attic of her London home in 2009. She never sang it in public. Her producer later added the music background and included it in her posthumous album released Dec, 2011. It has been described as "raw" and "drenched in emotion". You might or might not consider it strange or bizarre, but this particular YT poster matched it to a live performance, probably in 2007. That is strange and bizarre.

Dread Zeppelin...Led Zeppelin covered by a reggae band who's lead singer is an Elvis impersonator. Everything sounds cool, until Elvis starts up.

The Beatles Covered Metallica?!?!

Here's a weird one...

Did one of you guys build a time machine, because here's a video of the Beatles covering a song that was written over a decade after they actually performed it!!!

I find this cover bizzare and hilarious, like the guy doesn't understand that, sung by a guy, the song loses it's whole edge. (Or maybe he does.)
