Err… Not sure what to make of this one

I genuinely don't know whether Ben will love or hate this one. Is it privileged white girls (a Columbia University choir) appropriating African-American culture, or is it women satirising appalling misogyny in this version of Dr. Dre's 'Bitches ain't shit'? Either way, it's rather hypnotic.

I wouldn't play this if you're at work, if I were you.

I think it might be influenced by the definitive which manages to be both funny and strangely beautiful.

You're right - it is funny and beautiful. I'm a huge sucker for cover versions. I never warmed to Ben Folds, and now wonder whether I missed something.

I'd say there were two or three absolute corkers per album. When he's good he really is good.
