The Music Geek Track Of The Week: “Club Can’t Handle Me”

It’s not what you think! I promise!

I’m not posting about Flo Rida, who I just realized is “Florida” with a space in the middle. I’m posting about Tally Hall, a band from Michigan which is nothing like Flo Rida, or Florida.

Finding covers of songs I don’t particularly like that (1) make the song better and (2) make me laugh are rare finds. If you have a pair of disgusting jeans that you never wear, and one day you grab a pair of scissors and go “Tobias Funke” on those bad boys turning them into some sick cut-offs, you know what I’m talking about. This cover of “Club Can’t Handle Me” transformed something I hate into something I love, Mom jeans into awesome cut-offs.

Tally Hall is famous for their poppy songs and A capella style. Their single “Good Day” launched them into mainstream music when it was on an episode of The O.C., which I vividly remember.  It’s not exactly the most musically relevant track of the week we’ve posted, but when I fell upon this cover, sharing it seemed crucial. The song is somewhat faithful to Flo Rida’s original arrangement, but they’ve added in a new rap interlude which pokes a little fun of the song’s roots. Listen; I promise it will brighten your Friday!

    Can a song be too catchy? I feel like Bananaman has been stuck in my head since 2006.

    Nice, guys! Thanks for showing Tally Hall some love. Not to pile on, but if you haven’t heard their cover of another hip-hop classic… and you liked this… you simply MUST listen to their version of Biz Markie’s “Just A Friend” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BXLXBa4uGsY — To see it live is an experience all in itself. Oh yeah and they have some amazing ORIGINAL tunes, too. :)
