When The Fray Met Shakira: A Love Story


Once upon a time there was a white bread, piano-driven adult contemporary band called The Fray. Oh sure, their music was pleasing and agreeable enough to find airplay in grocery stores and offices across America......why, they even provided the emotionally manipulative backdrop music for a cheesy TV drama or two. However, few could argue that The Fray's sound was tediously formulaic--with each song becoming virtually indistinguishable from the next.
That was until they decided to cover Shakira's iconic track "Hips Don't Lie." The Fray succeeded in making the funniest, most deadpan cracker version of a spicy dance song ever in recorded history thus proving that musical diversity is truly a beautiful thing to behold.
The End.
Congratulations go out to The Fray. You indeed "make a woman go mad!" (with laughter)

Hey girl, I can see your body moving, and it's driving me crazy.

I'm looking in your window.

Put some curtains up. I'm mean, really. It's driving me crazy.

Carrot: I'm making some curtains out of Vienna Sausage pull tabs. Be patient. It might take awhile.

elizabeth w- I'm barely alive. I'm more concerned about my summer semester final exams than hurricanes at the moment.....thanks for that friendly doom and gloom disaster reminder, though!

j-mom: My ABSOLUTE favorite parts of this song is the drunken-sounding guy in the background randomly screaming profundities in Spanish like "TACOS CON CARNE!" I also like the haunted harmonica sound not heard since Disney's Escape To Witch Mountain movie.
