Listen To The New Rendition of the "You're a Mean One, Mr. Grinch" Song From THE GRINCH
The original “You’re a Mean One, Mr. Grinch” from the 1966 animated The Grinch is so great and so menacing. That song was perfectly performed by Thurl Ravenscroft.
Of course, with the new The Grinch film coming out, Illumination Entertainment felt the need to give us a new rendition of the classic Christmas song. This one was performed by Tyler the Creator and I’m not impressed.
The new version of the song keeps many of the familiar elements, but it also adds a few new things and it’s done in a completely different more modern style that I personally didn’t care for.
I’m sure there are some people that will like the song and think it’s hip, but it’s no where near being as good as the original. You can listen to it below and I also included the original song so that you can compare the two.
The Grinch tells the story of a cynical grump who goes on a mission to steal Christmas, only to have his heart changed by a young girl’s generous holiday spirit. Funny, heartwarming and visually stunning, it’s a universal story about the spirit of Christmas and the indomitable power of optimism. Academy Award nominee Benedict Cumberbatch (The Imitation Game, Doctor Strange) lends his voice to the infamous Grinch, who lives a solitary life inside a cave on Mt. Crumpet with only his loyal dog, Max, for company. With a cave rigged with inventions and contraptions for his day-to-day needs, the Grinch only sees his neighbors in Who-ville when he runs out of food.
Each year at Christmas they disrupt his tranquil solitude with their increasingly bigger, brighter and louder celebrations. When the Whos declare they are going to make Christmas three times bigger this year, the Grinch realizes there is only one way for him to gain some peace and quiet: he must steal Christmas. To do so, he decides he will pose as Santa Claus on Christmas Eve, even going so far as to trap a lackadaisical misfit reindeer to pull his sleigh.
Meanwhile, down in Who-ville, Cindy-Lou Who—a young girl overflowing with holiday cheer—plots with her gang of friends to trap Santa Claus as he makes his Christmas Eve rounds so that she can thank him for help for her overworked single mother. As Christmas approaches, however, her good-natured scheme threatens to collide with the Grinch’s more nefarious one. Will Cindy-Lou achieve her goal of finally meeting Santa Claus? Will the Grinch succeed in silencing the Whos’ holiday cheer once and for all?
The Grinch was directed by Yarrow Cheney and Scott Mosier and it will be released on November 9, 2018. Are you looking forward to this movie?
