Chris Cornell: No Bitches Allowed, No Matter Where They Are

Maura / January 28, 2009

The video for Chris Cornell’s “Part Of Me” made its way to the Internet a month ago, but I just happened across it today; it’s a Timbaland-produced track that sounds like a wan take on Nelly Furtado’s way superior “Say It Right,” and its lyrics tell the tale of a man who’s had many a regrettable impulse. Those lyrics, by the way, employ the phrase “that bitch ain’t a part of me” approximately 22 times. The video shows hard-luck scenarios in clubs that specialize in hot Dirty Dancing Havana Nights-style hotness (in San Juan), line-dancing (in El Paso), and good old-fashioned New York bootyshaking (in Queens!), I guess for the purpose of universalizing the song’s lyrics. (Or just to answer the “who’s going to buy this record?” query one of our commenters posed in an earlier discussion of the album.) Clip after the jump.
