another version

Just in case you were worried Lil Wayne's "Lollipop" might fade out at some point... I just don't think that will happen.

For some reason, everyone loves the song and the lyrics and stuff, and are covering it in their own way.

We've had the "Kidz Bop" version that was pretty hilarious, David Sides' piano cover [which is amazing, just like everything he does..] and now Framing Hanley has made their own rock version. [It doesn't actually get started until about 2 minutes in.]

It's pretty good. I just think it's funny how these lyrics, that are really very, mmm, interesting.. And not what you'd think would make a good rock or kids song, but everyone wants to do it!

But, one time I took the lyrics and put them into a "redneck translator" for a project for one of my classes. It pretty much stayed the same, which was interesting because you wouldn't expect rap and country lingo to be the same.. But it shows that it kind of is!

Anyways, this rock version is pretty sweet, I think.. But I still don't understand the fascination of this song. Explanations welcome.
