I learned something neat this weekend!

So I'm playing Sims3.

..yeah, I'm a geek, so what. This game has been sucking my time for a couple weeks now. I forgot how much I loved this game.

So ANYWAY. You can listen to the radio, if you put a stereo in your house, and after all of the expansions, you can actually choose from quite a few different genres. It's impressive how much variety you get.

I'm listening to the Darkwave station, while my supernatural Sims do their thing, and...hey, I totally know this song. It's Bastille's "Laura Palmer", holy shit. Awesome. Not "Pompeii", they went with a more obscure one, good on them. It's in Simlish, of course, the made-up language of the Sims, so the words are nonsense; but damned if it doesn't sound a LOT like the original. They did a REALLY good job of emulating their sound.

...almost too good.

And then I come across this:

WAY TOO GOOD. So I flex a little Google-fu...and yeah. That is TOTALLY ACTUALLY fun. They rerecorded their song for the game, and sung in Simlish. ...and they are not the only ones. A LOT of actual factual bands have recorded Simlish versions of their songs.

Ladytron has done FOUR.

EA Games has way too much money. And access to awesome artists who are willing to not take themselves seriously and sing in a made-up gibberish language. It's awesome.

And now you know, too!
