I’m having a Har Mar appreciation day today. Watch him perform Tall Boy on Jimmy Fallon in 2009 wearing a Dashiki and gold sleeves.
The story is that he wrote this song for Britney Spears’ album Blackout in 2007 but I found this article from 2005 referencing it as something he wrote for Paris Hilton. Whether it was a publicity stunt, something he actually earnestly wrote for them or he’s myth making it’s great.
So is this video of him singing Girls Only, which is from the perspective a young woman out on the town with her friends and feeling good about herself, on Lopez Tonight sporting knitwear.
What sent me down this Har Mar hole was watching his video for Lady, You Shot Me, which seems to be the most polished (palatable?) and complete version of himself that has been presented to the general public. Here he’s not a pop starlet trapped in the body of a balding over weight man, he’s James Brown. And it’s really, really fun.
Finally, here he is doing Tall Boy again but this time it’s in front of an audience at Johnny Brenda’s Philadelphia, PA on 4-3-13. Enjoy.
