Watch Karen O's Slimy 'Strange Love' Lyric Video

Karen O composed a poppy little calypso ballad called "Strange Love" for Tim Burton's Frankenweenie, and of course its lyric video stars the film's gruesomely adorable stop-motion animation characters. Beyond that, there's not much new to see here. A few clips from the trailer get spliced in, and the slimy green lyrics ooze in and out, so listeners are left to home in on just how much the frontwoman cribbed from Mikey & Sylvia's single "Love is Strange," as made famous by Dirty Dancing. (Yeah, yeah, yeah, we said it.) That one's included below for your comparative exploration.
