LFO Get Acquainted With Another Summer Girl

Jul 14th, 2009 // 1 Comment

I always say that I’m going to swear off mash-ups—too kitschy, too early-millennium—but then another one comes along that makes my resolve waver. The pop blog Sheena Beaston unearthed the latest one to make me smile, Virginia DJ CJ Milli‘s collision between Lumidee’s summertime staple “Never Leave You” (a.k.a. the “uh oh… uh oh” song that was all over New York radio a few years back) and LFO’s ode to ladies who wear Abercrombie and Fitch “Summertime Girls.” The slight dissonance between Lumidee’s vocals and LFO’s lyte funkiness is sorta reminiscent of the bending that happens to ice cream trucks’ tinkling music as drivers make their rounds on summer evenings. After the jump, another “Never Leave You” remix that I found while trying to unearth one version of the song’s video that didn’t feature cameos by Busta Rhymes and Fabolous (no offense intended, they just weigh down one of the airiest pop songs to grace radio in ages):

Behold: Lumidee and My Bloody Valentine!

  1. The uh oh song just brings back memories of me, usually on a patio of some sort, ranting to everyone about how “it’s ****ing off key! Why doesn’t anyone CARE? Is this the new “thing” in music because if so I’m burning my radio!” whenever it came on.

    Anything LFO related is always pleasing to the ears though :)
