Because I don’t want to blog about Panda Bear…
I like this song. I like this video. What are you going to do about it?
As with most Mark Ronson productions its not an original idea: the chorus is partly lifted from a French Canadian children’s song that you’re probably more familiar with than you initially thought. And as musical and exotic as ‘Je te plumerai la tête’ sounds, it translates to ‘I shall pluck your head’. More proof if any where needed that French is the best language for nonsensical pop songs.
Ronson’s keyboard flashing up with ‘ABSTRACT’ before Q-tip teleports in is a nice touch.
