If there is one thing I really love, it’s a song that reminds me of Tim Curry’s cover of “Brontosaurus”, originally by The Move. Therefore, it is impossible for me to not to dig this crazy clip, “People Mover” by a trio of rock dudes dressed like Big Foot, or something, whatever. And there is no denying that The People Mover, an awesome ride at Disneyland, figures heavily into the song’s lyrics: “Stand to the right / walk to the left / when you get off / better watch your step.” So, win-win!
“People Mover” delivers four-on-the-floor kick-assedness that rocks hard enough to crack a skull, and it holds up well even without the trippy video. I could live without the auto-tuned vocals, but I accept that use of this horrorshow of modern recording techniques is what attracts the youngsters. So, maybe it was a major label compromise, you know: “If you must dress like the Yeti, we insist you auto-tune your vocals, for the Kids.” (Me: Fuck the Kids.)
