General Larry Platt’s “Pants On The Ground” has taken the nation by storm! DJ Larry P performed the showstopper at the American Idol Atlanta Auditions Wednesday night and by Thursday morning there were at least three different remixes going viral! (See his performance at the bottom of this post)
But all that is just plain silliness. It took the great Canadian Grandfather of Grunge Neil Young to reveal the emotional depths of this song. I almost promise his rendition on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon will bring you to tears:
I’m still crying! Forget Jay Leno and Conan O’Brien – just let Jimmy Fallon do the Neil Young Fun Time Music Hour! But nothing else! Is it just me or is Jimmy just plain sad, even when telling jokes? (See JimmyNeil’s performance of the Fresh Prince of Bel Aire theme song HERE!)
Here’s the instant-classic original performance of “Pants On The Ground” by Lames Brown himself, General Larry Platt!
Everybody sing along!
Pants on the ground, pants on the ground
Lookin’ like a fool with your pants on the ground
With the gold in your mouth, hat turned sideways
Pants hit the ground, call yourself a cool cat, lookin’ like a fool
Walkin’ downtown with your pants on the ground. Giddy-up!
Hey, get your pants off the ground. Lookin’ like a fool
Walkin’, talkin’ with your pants on the ground. Giddy-up!
Hey, get your pants off the ground. Lookin’ like a fool with your pants on the ground.
Lyrics by General Larry Platt
