    1. Ok. This is cute, but I note that the lyrics have been changed from “skinny bitches” to “skinny ladies.” So in the original it’s fine to direct abusive comments at women who aren’t “All about that base.” Jeez. Women can’t win either way. We’re either too fat or too thin or too *insert problem here*. Also, what kind of mother attempts to instill self worth into their daughter by playing up their sexual desirability to men? “Boys like a little more booty to hold at night.” I know this song is meant to be a rallying cry for women to be more accepting about their body shapes but whenever I hear it I want to scream, “Fuck off Meghan Trainor and go and read some Simone De Beauvoir and the people that followed her!” OH WHAT’S THE POINT. SHE’S MADE A TRUCK LOAD OF MONEY WITH THIS SHIT. I’ll get me coat.

      • Yeah….
        I just like her sultry voice and bass chops.

        And the sparse arrangement…

        • Sorry gropey. I blame my hormones. See! “It’s shite being a woman!” to paraphrase Trainspotting. It is a nice cover. I enjoyed all your other musical posts too. “Get me a bromide…and put some gin in it!” – George Cukor, The Women, 1939.

          • No…I agree the lyrics are mostly inane and simple.
            With maybe the exception of the clever analogy in the title.

            But little girls these days could use a bit of encouragement in the body image department(and let’s be honest…that is the demographic this song, the original, is aimed at).

            I’m just impressed with Scott Bradlee’s ability to turn pop songs (some of them very dreadful) into very listenable, very quirky music.
            And the talent he attracts is beyond excellent.

            I see they are currently on tour…even going to play in Toronto, not too far from my place.
            I’d considered buying tickets…but I don’t think big concert hall venues are going to do this band justice.
            Now if they were playing a small club…I’d be there…
