Swings Like Teen Spirit

Filed under: ramblings — @ 9:45 pm Comments (0)

I remember chuckling at Mike Flowers’ cheesy-Pop cover of Venus In Furs – as much at the idea as the execution. That was a comedy moment, but what should I make of Paul Anka’s Swing version of Smells Like Teen Spirit? This is the man who wrote the words for My Way and I see no evidence that he has a particularly well-developed sense of humour or the absurd. He takes a song full of loathing and delivers it with a suntan and a cheesy grin. ‘Hello, hello, hello, how low” indeed.
