Music Monday! Ghengis Khan?

Yes, Ghengis Khan. the 12 century Mongol dictator. No, he’s not the artist, but the title of a song that has grown on me as it has grown in popularity in the alternative rock world. The band is Miike Snow (pronounced maIk sno).  They’re a Swedish trio that has been together since 2007. Two of the members, who prior to forming the band, collaborated as producers and songwriters, actually won a Grammy award for having written Britney Spears 2004 hit ToxicTrue to their pop music roots this song has a tremendously catchy chorus that I can’t stop singing in my head.

My favorite lyric in this song is from the chorus: “I get a little bit Ghengis Khan. I don’t want you to get it on with nobody else but me. With nobody else but me”  I’m not bragging, but I was a bit of a whiz when it came to global studies back in school and I don’t specifically recall any mention of Ghengis Khan being a little too clingy in relationships.

Have a great Monday! ~Phil

  1. I’ve never heard this song. It’s great! What a fun video, too! Genghis Khan you clingy bastard!

    • You are too funny. I hope that Ghengis Khan gets worked in to popular slang i.e. “I was seeing this girl but she got all Ghengis Khan on me and we had to break up.” To be honest, I didn’t even watch the video. I suppose I should probably preview the videos before I put them up, just in case.

  2. Genghis Khan is lean and mean
    Specially during the dance routine
    And I’ll tell you he’s one sweet talker
    But turned out to be quite the stalker.
