See Beck and Jenny Lewis Get Hammy on ‘Da Ya Think I’m Sexy’? Cover
Rod Stewart's disco hit is treated with the sleaze and (lack of) reverence it deserves
Given their vocal talents, we’d expect Beck and Jenny Lewis to be good at karaoke, but what we didn’t know is just how much of that hammy gusto they could bring to a cornball classic like Rod Stewart’s “Da Ya Think I’m Sexy?” On Wednesday night in Redmond, Washington, the pals busted out a cover of the 1978 disco smash, bouncing and struting around the stage with abandon. “We could go all night. Just me, you, and Jenny, and a couple of friends,” Beck says in the middle in a borderline creepy voice, obviously relishing in the song’s sleaze. It’s certainly nowhere near as good as their last team-up on “Just One of the Guys,” Lewis’ Voyager cut that Beck produced, but it’s definitely a lot of fun.
