SUNDAY FUNDAY: Mandy Jiroux - Insane

SUNDAY FUNDAY: Mandy Jiroux - Insane - [VARCITY]
Clubland has been awash with cover songs this year. Some sample a few lines of lyrics and change the title of the original song. Others have effected the vocals and thrown them over a trendy sound of the moment - future house or electro. A little more interesting are the ones which take a chorus from a well-known song and reconstruct it with new verses and rhythm structures. Cheat Codes lead the pack in the latter category with their hits “Sex” and “Let Me Hold You.” YouTube star and choreographer Mandy Jiroux steps into the rink and reworks Blind Melon’s “No Rain” by adding new verses and a trop pop beat while keeping the hook and the chorus in place. “Insane” is catchy as hell and the new lyrics add a fun vibe to the song best known for the video with the little girl in the bee costume. Unfortunately, it appears that the members of Blind Melon have launched legal action, but luckily the song is still available through digital outlets. Put that unnecessary drama aside and you celebrate #sundayfunday with this “insane” earworm.
