‘Schitt’s Creek’ Star Annie Murphy Saves Pop With “A Little Bit Alexis”
Dance-pop really peaked in the ’00s, a fact Annie Murphy acknowledges on “A Little Bit Alexis.” The Canadian comedienne performed the mock banger on last night’s episode of Schitt’s Creek (AKA the best show on television and/or Netflix) and then kindly chose to release the full version. The song sounds like a cross between Hoku and Heidi Montag, and is supposed to originate from her character’s scrapped 2007 reality show. Which is an Emmy-worthy idea that demands its own spinoff.
“A Little Bit Alexis” takes us back to a time when (rice) paper-thin voices wafted over tinny dance beats, and pop stars looked like coked-up socialites without stylists. As expected, the lyrics are hilarious (“Hide your diamonds, hide your exes,” Annie sings on the chorus, “I’m a little bit Alexis!”) and the production sounds like a badly pirated demo of a Pussycat Dolls B-side. I’m just upset we didn’t get a video. I’m imagining Lindsay Lohan’s “Rumors” filmed on a cell phone. See the cover and fall in love with Annie’s pop-saving bop below.

I got to write this song if we can call it that with @hollerado boys @nixonboyd and @mennovers for a particularly flaily scene in @schittscreek. @ant1.ya took this completely serious headshot if we can call it that for a particularly flaily time in my life. . If you guys are into getting cool lyrics like “la la la la la la la” stuck in your head for days and days, the link’s in my bio. Vroom vroom, bitches.🚗💨🚗💨
