Last week, Robin Thicke turned Icona Pop’s breakup anthem, “I Love It,” into a slinky, slow jam. Now Vampire Weekend has managed to take Thicke’s sexy “Blurred Lines” and make it into a funky jamboree.
Popping those collars on their Oxford button downs, the guys treated BBC Radio 1’s Live Lounge to an unexpectedly sultry version of the song.
Frontman Ezra Koenig takes the lead, showing off his falsetto and getting a little sassy as he sings, “What do they make dreams for/When you got them jeans on.” The rest of the band shouts, “hey, hey, hey,” throughout, adding in their own improvised howls and handclaps. The addition of a few ladies also adds a little extra something, something.
