Oh! I missed this last night. Well thank god for youtube or internet videos.

Well, Iggy just looks silly bouncing around like that! Still, I'm super duper glad this song is getting exposure.

Also the unbuttoned shirt...not a good look on a 62 year old.

funny. I'd call that (relatively) buttoned
(and far less troubling than other aspects of the spectacle).

It's just wrong. I don't know how you'd react to the song if you didn't know the original...

But, it just doesn't seem right after 20-odd years of conditioning by the original artists.

Mind you, I hope Bid and co. get some royalties out of it. It's about bloody time.

If it's strange for me, then it must be totally alien to The Captain. Weird.

The strange thing to me is the completeness of it all.

I hesitate to reprint the lyrics of the song here.

Is it that Iggy's skin is slack and the lustre has gone? :lol:

On Jimmy Fallon, the day after

Shandy- it used to be the case that USA was one of the handful of countries in the world that didn't pay broadcast royalties to writers- I'm not sure about TV, but it certainly applied to radio. A major rip-off country. Whether this has changed or not, I don't know...I'll see if any broadcast royalties filter through.

I am receiving money for this, though, from "synch fees" (payments made for Heroes and the Ford ad in the US), and will get something from sales.

What I'd like is this song being played in Europe, with hopefully an ad using it.

I like the Jimmy Fallon version a little better. Better guitar solo. Better tuba solo. And Iggy doesn't look *as* silly.

Seems you should get royalities if it's played on TV. It's a crime if not.

At least Iggy has good taste.

I liked this version better too, while thinking Iggy looked just as silly. There was more gratuitous bum wiggling if I am not mistaken. The perfect blonde highlights also bother me, because they clash with the rest of him, I guess.

And if you examine his dancing carefully, it resembles the gait of someone who has just got the use of their legs back after a period of rehabilitation. In fact he may have taken to the dance floor prematurely.
