If you see the phrase "Seekrankes Krokodil", do you hear Thurl Ravenscroft?
If you are a child between 6 and 60, the answer is probably "yes," even if you do not know his name. Ravenscroft sang in the 1966 TV classic "How the Grinch Stole Christmas" (19659018) unforgettable all the creative insults of "You & a Mean One, Mr. Grinch".
"Your heart is full of unwashed socks / Your soul is full of gunk," anyone?
Nevertheless, times are changing. And on November 9, there's a new animated "Dr. Seuss' The Grinch," which will be released in theaters with Benedict Cumberbatch. And with that comes a new version of "You & # 39; re a Mean One, Mr. Grinch" from Tyler, the creator.
Tyler's updated version, which includes a children's choir, is unlikely to rise in the charts. Nevertheless, it is worth listening to. As for the version that is better, a 27-year-old rapper or the voice of Tony the Tiger, we will not touch that with a 39½-foot stick. (And no, we will not even discuss Jim Carrey's version for the live action movie 2000. Sorry.) More: "How the Grinch stole Christmas" celebrates its 50th anniversary
