We’re both proud and a little sad

You know the Bus is all pro-local music, almost to a fault. It’s just how we are. But sometimes even our limits are tested. Case in point, the following, which we only recently became aware of.

Sir Mix-A-Lot, local man about town and king of your cousin’s wedding reception dance party, has the dubious distinction of being sampled for the Pussycat Dolls’ song “Don’t cha.” Yes. Those Pussycat Dolls. The Bus is not snobby, but we know they are bad music. And it breaks our heart.

Don’t believe? Take it to the tape – just listen to the choruses of both. Here’s Mix’s “Swass.”

And the Pussycat Dolls “Don’t cha.”

That’s the sound of puppies crying.

    And thanks to Larry Mizell for awarding the Bus it’s very first official Late Pass on this post. How did he put it? Ah yes, the “Antique Late Pass.” It’s only fair.
