Meghan Trainor’s “All About That Bass” is among 2014’s most controversial and most covered songs. The controversies hounding the song lie in its theme: weight.
On the positive side are the people who are tired of society’s skinny Barbie outlook on how women should look like yet the negative side is saying the song is crazy because it glorifies obesity and weight problems, which could have negative medical impact on the person.
Well, controversial as it may be, it has also been one of the most popular songs of the year – thanks to its catchy tune and upbeat rhythm. It is also one of the most covered songs of the year, with groups like HomeFree even making their own version.
For the Philippines, our best and funniest cover so far is the one made by Mikey Bustos. Well, it is more of a parody – and it is really funny.
Mikey entitled his parody as “I Go to Palengke”. Watch the crazily funny video here:
