During self-isolation, Jamiroquai has made us an equally bizarre and hysterical David Bowie-flavoured treat. A 34-second cover of Let’s Dance features the electro-funk sensation clad in a regal cream-coloured headpiece, perched casually in front of a vase of orchids.
Stick around to the end of the video – I beg of you.
In a suave and sultry cover, Jamiroquai reimagines David Bowie’s Let’s Dance complete with mentions of headaches, face masks, and diarrhoea.
The video was posted on Jamiroquai’s Instagram account, captioned “Only another three months to go.” It follows his brief cover of The Pointer Sisters’ I’m So Excited, reframed as Self-Isolation.
The lyrics are as follows:
“Lockdown/Put on your face mask and watch TV/Lockdown/To the sound of the kids all screaming at me/Lockdown/Trying to avoid the COVID-19/Lockdown/I’ve got a headache, a serious headache/And if you dry cough, I’ll run from you/A fever so high/With diarrhoea, you know this viral flu is trying to kill you too/If you should run under a bus it is because you’re bored.”
Jamiroquai, what a guy. So casual, so nonchalant, and still so refreshingly relevant.
