It's not often that I can pinpoint the time and place where I first heard a song, but for LMFAO's I'm Sexy and I Know it, I got it. I was riding around Lawrence, Kansas with my brother, listening to the radio. I could probably even tell you the date if I wasn't up all night.
Truth is, I pay zero attention to popular music. It's just something I've outgrown as my own tastes have calcified and the snobbery has set in.
But I liked this song. I also happen to like variations on a theme, and after telling all the guys at work about how much I liked the song, they told me about this.
It's Big Head Todd (sorry, no Monsters) doing a blues version.
And it works.
