Greg Lasswell [Girls Just Wanna Have Fun 'Cover']

So I decided to check out the premiere of “The Carrie Diaries,” the prequel to the HBO series Sex and the City. And you know what? I’m not ashamed to say that I was actually a fan. Perhaps the best part about the show is its soundtrack, which showcases heaps of classics from the 80′s, including this modern remake of “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun” by Greg Lasswell. Sure, the song is quite a few years old, but I hadn’t actually heard it before (my bad). Laswell strips down the song and slows it down completely. As Laswell states himself: “I changed the melody so that people wouldn’t recognize it right away and played it only on piano, in hopes of shining a spotlight on the lyrics.” I am loving this reinterpretation of “Fun” into a ballad- what do you think?!
