Song of the Day #3,744: ‘Stereo’ – John Legend

John Legend might be a recent addition to the EGOT ranks, but I have never found him very engaging. He seems like a lovely man, but his music bores me.

His wife, model Chrissy Teigen, on the other hand, is a goddamn marvel. She is witty as hell, wielding her Twitter feed like a scalpel against the deplorables, and charmingly self-deprecating to boot.

Recently, Teigen revealed that she and Legend had sex on their first date. She met him while shooting a video for the song ‘Stereo,’ then hooked up with him later that night. Two kids into their marriage that story is more sweet than salacious, not that Teigen needs the cover. She isn’t one to be ashamed of her sexuality.

When I heard the story, the first thing I did was check out the video. I’m not sure what I expected to see, but I guess it was titillating to know what happened next. Amusingly, almost all of the comments were by people doing the same thing.

Yo yo
Yo yo
Yo yo

She’s a fast love professional
Crafty, bold and beautiful
Staged right, locked eyes
I swear it’s magical

Her name is Melanie
Says she digs my melodies
Likes how I move
Thinks I’m cool
That’s what she says to me

Big stage, bright lights, short love long nights
Frequent flights through the skies to see stars

I come back to town
She’s hangin’ around
It still feels so real but it can’t go too far

Her favorite colours be platinum and gold
She only loves in stereo, she only loves in stereo
I should know cause I’ve seen it before
I think I gotta let her go
She only loves her stereo

Oh, oh
Oh, oh
Oh, oh

Turned on the video
Oh my goodness there she goes
Now I’m hot, seems I’m not the only one she knows

Name droppin’ everyday
But I still want her anyway
I like how she moves
Think she’s cool
My favorite getaway

Big stage, bright lights, short love long night
Deja vu, yeah, we do it again

Off to the next town
She’s on to the next round
Let it go
We both know that it’s all gonna end, oh

Her favorite colours be platinum and gold
She only loves in stereo, she only loves in stereo
I should know cuz I’ve seen it before
I think I gotta let her go
She only loves her stereo

Oh, oh
Oh, oh
Oh, oh

Oh, oh
Oh, oh
Oh, oh

She fell in love with the radio
It wasn’t really me
So I had to let her go
Just ask any DJ back in her hometown
She likes to get around
Just watch as she gets down

Her favorite colours be platinum and gold
She only loves in stereo, she in loves her stereo
I should know cuz I’ve seen it before
I think I gotta let her go
She only loves in stereo

Oh, oh
Oh, oh
She loves her stereo
(I think I gotta let her go)

Oh, oh
Oh, oh (ohh)
She loves in stereo
(I think I gotta let her go)

Oh, oh
Oh, oh
She loves in stereo

Oh, oh
Oh, oh
She loves in stereo

    I’m also a bigger fan of Legend as a person than I am of his music, although I’m kinda diggin’ this song (and video).😁

    I don’t really go on Twitter very often, but Amy loves Tiegon’s tweets.

    I ADORE Legend’s voice, though I don’t own any of his albums. He just announced an upcoming Christmas album, which will be on constant rotation for me from Thanksgiving to Jan. 2. I follow both Legend and Teigen on Instagram (and Twitter, for that matter; Legend’s attempts to kindly but firmly pivot Kanye West in the direction of earth have been a particular delight over the last year). Teigen is a brilliant wielder of social media as a marketing tool. By welcoming me into their little family circle, she’s got me interested in buying her cookbook, John’s album, and whatever adorable collection she just launched at Target. They’re about as “goals” as a couple can be.

    Sounds like a neat couple. Kinda like this song too
