Hanson: “MmmBop”

Hey, Gurl takes on the inimitable Hanson, with “MmmBop.” Thanks to the wonderful Dave TeeVee for the footage!

Hanson. MMMBop. Oh HELL Yeah!

Hey, Gurl is always working on new songs and we aim to debut a new one or two at each show.

And while some song ideas are embraced, others are mocked relentlessly before being discarded like an old dishcloth.

But when the idea to cover Hanson’s “MMMBop” was floated, well, oh yeah, lemme tell ya, it was a unanimous celebration of epic proportions.

We shared smiles, hugs, hi-fives, and stories of how cute we thought the boys would be (once they hit puberty).

But I digress. Until we debut this baby at Red Eyed Fly on November 10, here’s the video to get you through your daily grind.

Marci Got a Keytar!!!

The Beauty, The Splendor, The Keytar

The Beauty, The Splendor, The Keytar

If you bought stock in Hey, Gurl’s burgeoning frontwoman/keyboardist, Marci, you’re going to be happy.

For her birthday, her incredibly awesome and surprisingly cool parents purchased for her just about the coolest present a child could receive from their bearers:  a keytar.

When talking about how she may incorporate the keytar into upcoming shows, Marci slyly mused about the possibilities of voice sampling: “Maybe I’ll hide subliminal messages in our music…like, ‘You will buy us a drink’…and just loop it through ‘MmmBop.'”

Brilliant, our Marci is.
