Sex and the shitty theme song

We were already a bit worried about this summer’s big screen version of Sex and the City – the trailer showed a shocking lack of actual jokes, constant rumours of Sarah Jessica Parker and Kim Cattrall fighting, Patricia Field’s fashion decisions appearing a bit OTT/bat shit crazy.

Don’t get us wrong, we liked the tv show. The film should have been something to look forward to, a nice bit of sexy girly fun in a summer of big action/superhero blockbusters. But now we have to add the prospect of listening to this at least once during the film:

(Note: within an hour of posting this, Universal Music clearly did a clean sweep of youtube, with about 12 videos of this song being removed. We found this new one, but it could be gone soon too. Probably for the best)

I had to double check – is that really the actual theme song?! It sounds like something that a chancer producer would knock off for a cheap hit on the back of the film. A tiny sample of the show’s theme tune, then Fergie’s “lyrics”, which appear to be just a list of designer labels. Maybe it’s just me, but I would have expected a song that tries to allude to the up-market, stylish and desirable image that the series itself aspires to be.

Have the four ladies traded their “it’s okay to be 30+ and still single in the city” ethos for a “oh dear god, we’re so old, quick, stand next to someone young!” panic attack?

On a somewhat-but-not-quite related note, here’s Fergie not taking herself seriously and contributing to actual laughter:

SATC producers, take note.
