Wendy Jane’s Weekend Sounds: Bastille vs. TLC – Scrubs

13 Apr

Just like People Magazine’s “Who Wears It Better?” where they have photos of two celebrities in the same outfit and ask who pulls it off best, this week perhaps I’ll ask, “Who Sings It Better?”  In this case, it’s the U.K.’s Bastille vs. 90’s super-girl trio, TLC with Scrubs.

I do have a bit of a crush on Bastille’s lead singer Dan Smith because I think he has a beautiful voice.  Also, it seems easyto fall for the stripped down version of an R&B song, and for me, especially to hear the no-bull, in your face lyrics sung in Smith’s proper British accent, but alas, I’m a sucker for TLC’s  spunk and delivery, and their killer, futuristic video, so I stand by the classic, and vote for TLC’s version.  What about you?  Who Sings It Best?  Leave your comments below.  Thanks!

You gotta love TLC.  Well, you don’t have to, but I thought of them as this strong group of young women doing their thing.  They gave us songs that we not only loved dancing to in the 90’s, but that also empowered women to embrace their sensuality,  to stand up for themselves, and especially to protect themselves from “scrubs.”  And, they always looked like they were having so much fun doing it.

Enjoy!
