Sinead O’Connor The Emperor’s New Clothes [Remix Hank Shocklee].
Bear with me here, please. Not only is Tumblr supposed to be superduper easy, but since I’m a professional digital content-maker, I should be extra good at this, right? But no. Finding it surprisingly difficult. Like - how do I make text bigger? Do I have to do it manually, in html? That can’t be right.
I will need to consult some smartfolk.
Anyway, about the song: Seized with yet another bout of late 80s/early 90s nostalgia (I think there will be a lot of that here) and went looking for this on the Internet, intent on “sharing” it for myself. But! Turns out I still owned the disc. Whodathunk?
Anyway, about the song, for real: It’s Hank Shocklee of Public Enemy’s Bomb Squad remixing it, and I have to say that it sounded a lot better in my mind. Now it sounds an awful lot like Esprit ads on college dorm walls — which is weird, because no one who had Esprit ads on their walls listened to this.
