It shouldn’t work. Dolly Parton‘s 1980 mega-hit “9 to 5” is one of those generation-defining hits that still stands up almost forty years later. It doesn’t need updating. It doesn’t need re-iterpreting. And it’s feminist message really shouldn’t be co-opted by a MAN. But put all that aside. I strongly urge you to give Robbie William‘s version a chance. It takes a second for your ears to adjust to the quickened pace and the general weirdness of Robbie’s voice singing the lyrics. But by the time he hits the first chorus, it all starts coming together in a glorious burst of Scissor Sisters-eque nuttiness and from that moment on, I guarantee you’ll be hooked. Listen below.
