Couldn't we all use just a little more Britney?

I am convinced the universe knows the DMD household could use a little good cheer these days.

How else to explain the uncanny convergence of my current favorite band with not one, but two (listen to the bridge!) of Graham's all-time favorite songs, which were recorded more than 40 years apart?

I discovered this video on Youtube a few days ago and Graham and I have watched it non-stop ever since: I take it as a clear sign that someone or something out there is determined to put a smile on my face.

Hope it does the same for you...

LOL! I haven't heard the "original" but I can guess... that was fun. I loved the bridge.

Any song that can kick it with an accordian has got to be good, and this fits that bill!

Heather said...

Ha ha! That is great!

Heather said...

I have been a fan of this band for along time. That bumps them into my hall of fame. I love their choice of instruments.

Reluctant Housewife said...

That was spectacular. I love their creative use of instruments to recreate the music from the Spears song. The mini accordion (do those have a name?) and the beer bottles? yay. Thanks for sharing it - it's going on my list of great cover songs.

Womanizer is one of Grahams favourite songs? Ha!

Gail said...

It's Britney's redeeming factor: that she spawns all kinds of creative remixes of her -- and I cringe saying this -- music.

Mark Ronson's version of "Toxic" is F-U-N.
