Summer Jam 2013: Cookie Monster, “Me Want It (But Me Wait)”

We are so starved for a decent summer jam this summer that I will gladly, AT LEAST for today, take Cookie Monster’s self control-focused parody of summer jam contender Icona Pop’s “I Love It” (which, if you ask any Stereogum commenter, you’ll know uh-actually came out in the spring of 2012). Am I going to put Cookie Monster’s “Me Want It (But Me Wait)” on the playlist for my next BBQ? Of course not. I’m not a DORK. My playlist is very strictly limited Kanye West, Disclosure, and songs Hep Alien played on Gilmore Girls. Am I going to watch the video probably one or two times today, whenever I need a smile? Uh-doy! (Yes.) Good job, Mr. Monster.
