Queens Of The Stone Age frontman Josh Homme has always had an oblique sense of slickness, but it’s still a bit of a surprise to see him covering Robin Thicke’s irresistible bubblefunk hit “Blurred Lines.” In a recent BBC studio session, Homme and his band took the song on acoustically, with Homme mumbling a bit and flubbing some lyrics even as he was reading them from a sheet of paper. And sadly, nobody involved did any of the T.I. dances from the video. Still, Homme’s falsetto is sort of a revelation, especially in this context. Check out the video below.
