Tyler the Creator and Danny Elfman reimagine the classic Grinch theme “You’re A Mean One,” from the forthcoming release Dr. Seuss’ The Grinch, opening November 9.
via Rolling Stone:
Tyler’s offering — an update of “You’re A Mean One, Mr. Grinch” — follows the same simple structure of the beloved original, which is, in essence, a mid-’60s diss song about how gross The Grinch is, but adds drums, strings, Tyler’s unmistakable baritone and a chorus of children. I’m not saying I’m going to listen to it, like, a lot, but there is some real tension to the song, and by the end Tyler’s prowess as a producer is plain.
I have absolutely zero interest in another Grinch movie, but this song is definitely going on my holiday shuffle.
