MISTY MILLER – Yummy Yummy Yummy

A cover of the original Ohio Express of course. I think this is one of those songs that you probably either love or hate; I can’t say I particularly appreciate the beauty that is ‘Yummy Yummy Yummy’. Still, this isn’t just a simple and soulless translation: Misty Miller has put her own swing on the ’60s hit. It’s a softer version with whispering guitar and expressive vocals. I appreciate the creativity of giving the original a makeover but there is something about altering this song in such a way that makes it seem ironic. I hope it was ironic. The song sung this way just seems to have a straightness that I can’t quite take seriously. The singer seems to have an underlying tongue-in-cheek but maybe I am misinterpreting. Either way it’s all down to taste. If you like the original be sure to have a listen, or perhaps if you hate the original have a listen, you might just like this version.
