image for Review of Lil' Poo's Bubble Wrap Bubble Wrap...I love to squeeze you!

When I arrived at my desk this morning at The Spoof, I was pleased to find a CD with a post-it stuck on it that had barely legible writing on it that, I think, said, "Review this." I always enjoy reviewing music so I happily took off the post-it, and that's when I read the title of the song and then I realized that it must be a joke. I looked around at my co-workers. They were all sitting at their desks writing or fact checking. Only one of them was actually sleeping. None of them were laughing so I gathered then that it wasn't a joke.

I am not a huge fan of rap music although I'll admit to liking some music by The Beastie Boys. I'll even admit to getting funky with some LL Cool J. As stand alone poetry the words of Tupac can be very deep and even beautiful. I had my doubts though when I read the lyrics to Bubble Wrap.

I got my disc-man out and gave it a listen. I was surprised. It was catchy. My head started bobbing to the downbeat. It was like I was hyptmotized by the insane drums and synthesizers. Then it hit me, Lil' Poo basically copied Wild Thing by Ton Loc. The only thing different was his lyrics about bubble wrap. I will admit though, with lyrics like "Bubble wrap when you're under my feet, you make me feel complete," I want to get some bubble wrap and stomp the crap out of it.

Despite the fact he'd blatantly ripped off another's song, I still found myself singing to it. That is until one of my co-workers threw a bag of twiglets at me and yelled, "Your singing makes me violent!" All in all, not a bad effort from Lil' Poo if you don't mind listening to Wild Thing but with lyrics about bubble wrap. And, if you don't mind someone throwing snacks at you!

The CD single will be available next Tuesday throughout the UK and the US on iTunes. However, if I were you, I'd just wait for the free download that will most likely come within the month.

Below are the lyrics to Bubble Wrap.

Bubble Wrap

Bubble Wrap, You make my face laugh
You wrap all my things groovy
Bubble Wrap, I think your full of air
But I wanna know for sure
Let me pop your bubbles
Your full of it

Bubble Wrap, You make my Face Laugh
You make all that crap groovy
Bubble Wrap, I love to pop you
But I wanna pop some more
C'mon let me stomp you
I popped you

(Guitar Solo and Rap]

Bubble wrap you wrap my soul; you make me feel all so cool. Bubble wrap when you're under my feet, you make me feel oh so complete. I ain't never gonna leave you cause you know I can compete ya.

Bubble Wrap, You make my face laugh
You wrap all my things groovy.
Bubble Wrap I love to squeeze you
Until you pop for sure
C'mon pop already
I popped you.

{Guitar rock out)

I think I love you
