where the hella, ella, ella, eh, eh, eh will it stop?

Why! Why! Why is it always the song that I hate that get stuck in my head? I thought avoiding radio and videohits would exorcise that goddamn "Umbrella, ella, ella, eh, eh, eh" song from my head, but no. Looks like everyone is doing a cover of that song somewhere.

The original video first. The song, albeit catchy and poppy, hurt my ears, the original video hurt my eyes, left a weird sour taste in my tongue, gave me a blocked nose for a week, and made me lose touch with reality for a week also. If I had a sixth sense I think I would have seen ghosts opening umbrellas and telling me "you can stand under my umbrella, ella, ella, eh, eh, eh". Ok I'm exaggerating, the video and the song only annoyed me for a whole month of July, no biggie. Why? Watch the video and look out for:

  • full nudity with clever camera angles to make things G-rated
  • ridiculous dancing
  • ella, ella, eh, eh, eh

I thought that was bad, until I saw this cover by Amanda Palmer. Not really a cover though, only a lypsync cover which means, same vocal, different and much weirder dancing. Still hurts my eyes and ears. Now I can't say "Umbrella" without adding "ella, ella, eh, eh eh" at the end. I think I need to take a break from this post and go get myself a nutella, ella, ella, eh, eh, eh sandwich. Moore ella, ella, eh, eh, eh when I return from my nutella, ella, ella, eh, eh, eh break.

Ok, I'm back with another cover of the "you know what" song. I can't type out "you know what" because I would risk typing out the horrible ella, ella, eh, eh, eh again. Gee, I just did. Anyhow, here's a cover from Mandy Moore with completely different arrangement. No dancing (except for the original video being played in the background) and the song sounds better here. Better than the original but too slow.

This brings me to the last cover which was the cover that brought "you know what" back in my head. I got over "you know what" and I thought it was out of my system until I saw this Tegan and Sara cover of "you know what". No dancing, not even a video of someone else dancing in the background, thankfully. Best version of the horrible song. However, nothing can make me like that song, not even Tegan and Sara.

If you still haven't had enough of "you know what" covers, check out the short and bad quality recording of the Patrick Wolf's cover and even more covers on youtube.

On a not completely unrelated note, here's a video of Motion City Soundtrack covering a song from another band. Thankfully not "you know what". I've just recently gotten into the newest MCS album. I'd say it's a very good pop-punk record if I have to put it into a genre, I hate classifying genres. Usually I'll lump things into 2 boxes: I like and I don't like. See if you can find why it's not completely unrelated to this post.

So that's it, now I need to rewatch Cinderella, ella, ella, eh, eh eh while having my second nutella, ella, ella, eh, eh, eh sandwich and then go study about those bacteria with flagella, ella, ella, eh, eh, eh for microbiology.
OK, I'll stop with the you-know-what.
