Right, so I don't know about you guys but I think it does kind of suck when a classic song gets remixed into some club shit. But you know, I can deal with it, I understand people want to re-invent things, make things more in keeping with the time whilst still keeping such good vocals/lyrics etc., but WHY WOULD YOU THEN PUT IT TO SUCH A WEIRD/GROSS/MYSOGYNISTIC VIDEO?!

'Somebody to Love' is a classic 60s tune from Jefferson Airplane, originally from The Great Society, but the Jeff version was awesome. Anyway, I was sitting in my SU and this came on the TV:

So at first I was like 'woah OK, wtf, babies skydiving from an aeroplane' but then it just got WORSE. All these babies just land on this fucking plastic looking woman who's wearing sexy underwear and writhing around singing the lyrics (even though it's clearly not HER singing the lyrics). And they just land on her fake-ass boobs while she drinks from a baby bottle which she then squeezes and it bursts all over the screen in this gross ejaculatory way like WHAT THE HELL IS THIS?! AND WHY IS IT BEING ASSOCIATED WITH THIS AWESOME SONG?! Whoever came up with the idea for this video clearly had Mummy issues. And is a bit sexist. If I were Jefferson Airplane/Darby Slick I would be PISSED.

Ugh, this was pretty disturbing, to say the least.

Hi! I know this is a little bit awkward, but me and my friend are starting a blog and we’d like to get to know new people who we can interact with.

Definitely not a fan.

In fact I am generally not a fan of most remixed songs at all.
