Yes you read that correctly Miguel, the slow-grinding-baby-making artist, covered Elton John\’s classic Bennie and the Jets. You would think it would be a really odd combination but brace yourself it is quite delicious. It threw me through a loop when Wale started rapping but I\’m totally on board for this tasty track. Miguel\’s silky-soulful voice does Elton John proud.
I\’ll leave you with the original for those who are uneducated in this hard hitting, all powerful, song. Also just for an added bonus check out Katherine Heigl from 27 Dresses getting down to this song.
Also for those who were wondering what the lyrics are take a gander, I still believe by the fact that they say \”electric boobs\” rather than \”electric boots.\” And I stand by that because, who wouldn\’t want electric boobs?
The spotlight\’s hitting something
That\’s been known to change the weather
We\’ll kill the fatted calf tonight
So stick around
You\’re gonna hear electric music
Solid walls of soundSay, Candy and Ronnie, have you seen them yet
But they\’re so spaced out, Bennie and the Jets
Oh but they\’re weird and they\’re wonderful
Oh Bennie she\’s really keen
She\’s got electric boots a mohair suit
You know I read it in a magazine
Bennie and the Jets
Hey kids, plug into the faithless
Maybe they\’re blinded
But Bennie makes them ageless
We shall survive, let us take ourselves along
Where we fight our parents out in the streets
To find who\’s right and who\’s wrong
