I don’t know if any of you has ever heard of the song Straight Outta Compton by N.W.A. It’s a rap song. Not being a fan of rap music, I’ve never heard of that song until I came across Nina Gordon’s website. She has her own version of the song, and it’s definitely not rap. The lyrics of the song contains strong language, but the way Nina sang it makes you not mind the strong language at all. Anyway, while surfing around today I found the original video of Straight Outta Compton by N.W.A. (which was banned by MTV) but with Nina Gordon singing the song in the background. It seems weird, but somehow it works.
While you’re here, be sure to check out Nina Gordon’s rendition of Skid Row’s 18 and Life. It’s awesome! I never really liked the original version, but I love Nina’s version. Also check out the video of the Irish boyband Westlife’s Uptown Girl (originally sung by Billy Joel) but with the punk cover band Me First and the Gimme Gimmes singing in the background. It’s amusing to say the least.
