When you see the phrase "dizzy crocodile", do you hear? Thurl Ravenscroft?
If you are a child between the ages of 6 and 60, the answer is probably "yes", even if you did not know his name. Ravenscroft sang memorably all the creative insults of "You're A Mean One, Mr. Grinch" in the 1966 television classic "How the Grinch Stole Christmas."
"Your heart is full of unwashed socks / Your soul is full of garbage", anyone?
Still, times change. And on November 9, there is a new animated "Dr. Seuss & # 39; The Grinch" that hits theaters and stars Benedict Cumberbatch. And with it comes a new version of "You & # 39; re to Mean One, Mr. Grinch" by Tyler, the creator.
The updated version of Tyler, which includes a children's choir, probably will not go up the charts. Still, it's worth listening to. As for the version of who's better, a 27-year-old rapper or the voice of Tony the Tiger, we're not going to touch that with a 39-and-a-half-foot club. (And no, we're not even going to discuss Jim Carrey's version for the live action movie of 2000. Sorry.)
