Womanizer, womanizer, Franz and womanizer, oh!

Oh so charming womanizers.

Dear Franz Ferdinand,

Boy, don't try to front.
I-I know jus-just what you are.
You got me goin'!
You're oh so charming!
But I can't do it.
You womanizer.

- love,
the Impressionable Youth.

Franz Ferdinand - Womanizer (Britney Spears cover) (mp3)

Well, what can I say? It was only a matter of time before Franz Ferdinand did a Britney Spears cover. They actually bridge into one of their crowd favourites, Shopping for Blood after the midpoint of the song, which is surprisingly fitting.

Hear the entire interview and performance at BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge. There's a good 20 minutes worth of material on that link. Nick proves his abilities as a talented mathematician. Alex tells an adorable childhood story about Doctor Who and mittens. The band conquers a Fear Dragon, then perform No You Girls and of course, the highlight of the day, their cover of Britney Spears' Womanizer.

Kind of prefer Lily Allen's cover she does of Womanizer.

Really did get quite the kick out of the interview segment though--hadn't heard much of the Live Lounge before and those odd-ball listener questions were fantastic.

"Who's good with numbers?" :-)
