Jimmy Barnes Ruins Dance Music
What is this fuckery? Jimmy Barnes has released a house cover of Dragon's seminal '80s classic "April Sun In Cuba" and single-handedly ruined dance music for everyone. Thanks a lot. There isn't much else to say. DJ Yaleidys - whoever the hell that is - is on better drugs than me if he thinks this shit sounds good. I'll admit it has inherent camp appeal given Barnesy's former rock-god status and there's something amusing about the tragic female vocalist but the track doesn't work and has made me scared to enter a nightclub. Ever again. The video is equally heinous. Why does Jimmy look like a member of Human Nature 25 years from now? Who told this poor woman it would be a good look to stand on a speaker in a bikini top against the worst visual effects in recent memory? How did the director complete on Windows Movie Maker without his laptop crashing? Apparently, "Sun In Cuba" is already a top 40 Club hit in America. Which just goes to prove that the world really does end in 2012 because the apocalypse is clearly just around the corner. Brace yourself for the year's worst single below.
