Hey, Baby - Not the Crazy Frog

Legbamel Not-Pop

Perhaps unsurprisingly, my children love the over-blown bass-and-silliness of The Crazy Frog, and thus regularly force me to listen to the slaughtered version of Hey, Baby on a regular basis (like right now). In defense, I've taken out my headphones and am enjoying these two good versions of the song, the great original from Bruce Channel and an interesting cover by Jose Feliciano. Take that, cultural waste-oids!

  1. Boy, this brought back memories. My mom said that I sang this tune lots of times as a small child. Thanks for the reminder...Nostalgia...*sigh*

    Nards - We played this song for a small-ensemble concert more years ago than I care to admit, and we all loved it. I'm glad others still remember the old (read: good) versions, as well.

  3. Oeh! A classic! I love this song *sings a long*

  4. Oh I like the guitar in the second version!! But I like the voice better of Bruce. But both are good versions!

    Yeah, I couldn't pick one so I had to include both. Some mashup artist out there just has to combine the two and make a definitive version!
