The original version of Oh My God by the Kaiser Chiefs was on my 2004 Coming-To-College mix–Alas I am one of those tools who has to make a mix CD for every. single. life. event, and “Oh my god I can’t believe it/I’ve never been this far away from home” was almost too perfect. Three years later, Mark Ronson has overhauled the track just in time for senior year.
I have to stay I greatly prefer the original… Partially because I hate Lily Allen, but I just don’t think it’s a song that’s well-suited to subdued, sexy crooning.
Edit: Okay, I can’t stop watching the video. I guess it means it’s growing on me.
