This is better than the original. That is not saying much but this was interesting.

You're cool for linking youtube videos. What I mean is despite the vocals they add more to that song. Cobra Starship's Hot Mess was a terrible album with the title track as one of the worst songs of the bunch. I did not even say the remix was good I said it was interesting. It was not a regurgitated cover and they did something different with it. I liked it more than the original becuase someone had to put some effort into it. I don't care how good gabe's voice is he has no soul in his music anymore. Everything sounds the same.

Uh, when you said "the original", I though you meant the original Hot Mess by Chromeo. My mistake.

Also, I don't think I'm cool for posting youtube vids. Regardless, sorry for the misfire.

Its all good. I think I actually made a mistake myself. Got who remixed who backwards. Anything affiliated with Cobra Starship these days is pathetic. So I am going to go listen to the original by Chomeo as I thought it was so muffled I could not tell what it was but some of the sounds where cool. Probably parts that came from the original though.

Chromeo can do no wrong but I think this improves slightly over the original.
