For those who are not familiar with this song and video by LMFAO, it went viral last September and now has over 233 million hits on YouTube. Honestly, I still have yet to make it through the video, although I find the video humorous, it’s the music I don’t care for.
Then, bring in Noah.
His YouTube site features him singing several cover songs. Just him singing and playing his guitar. And what talent he has. So, here are both videos, the original “I’m Sexy and I Know It” by LMAO and Noah’s cover version – which is approaching 2 million hits now. Whichever order you watch is up to you. If you haven’t seen LMAO’s version, then I suggest watching a minute or two of it first, then watch Noah’s. IMHO, a huge major improvement. Oh, btw… Noah rather rattles on for about 30 seconds if you want to jump to the 30 second mark to listen to him play.

Just thought I’d throw this one in… “Where the Streets Have No Name” by U2 – which is one of my favorite bands and songs. Although I still favor the original by U2, Noah presents a very fine acoustical version here. Oh, and jump forward to about 1:05 as he “yaps” for the first minute (he even mentions his “yapping” in the comments, so I’m not being mean, just reiterating what he’s already aware of).
