    Concept: self-explanatory, methinks. If you've seen FLCL, that is. If not... well, there's this main character who's an alien girl from space (this is revealed in the very first episode, so I'm not spoiling anything), and, well, she's freaky. Super freaky.

    If you're going to review this vid, please understand that NOT ALL of the lines that have mouths moving at the same time are supposed to be lip synched. Let me see...
    - Masashi: "The girl's a super freak"
    - Kamon: "Hey hey, hey, hey!"
    - Naota: "Super freak"
    - Amarao: "Super freak, that girl's a super freak"
    And that's all the lines that were supposed to be synched. Anything else is pure coincidence. In other words, there's not a whole hell of a lot of lip synching going on here, and that which IS there is not too great, considering there's usually something going on in the background or a rotating camera angle or SOMEthing, so my options were limited.

    Credit is due to Cyanna (Katie C.) for the idea for the "such a freaky scene" lines. :)

    Note to self: 44100 times 100.1% does NOT equal 44541... it equals 44144.1. But I was stupid and sped the audio up a full percent before editing, instead of just 0.1%, so I had a hell of a time trying to get it to synch up correctly at the end. End result: you'll hear a SLIGHTLY faster version of the song than you may be used to, but it's no worse of a deviation than what you hear on some radio stations.

    Lyrics, for those of you who don't know the song:

    She's a very kinky girl
    The kind you don't take home to mother
    She will never let your spirits down
    Once you get her off the street, ow girl

    She likes the boys in the band
    She says that I'm her all-time favorite
    When I make my move to her room, it's the right time
    She's never hard to please, oh no

    That girl is pretty wild now (the girl's a super freak)
    The kind of girl you read about (in new wave magazines)
    That girl is pretty kinky (the girl's a super freak)
    I really love to taste her (every time we meet)
    She's all right, she's all right
    That's girl's all right with me
    Yeah
    Hey hey, hey, hey!

    She's a super freak, super freak
    She's super freaky, yow
    Everybody sing!
    Super freak, super freak

    She's a very special girl (the kind of girl you wanna know)
    From her head down to her toenails (down to her feet, yeah!)
    And she'll wait for me at backstage with her girlfriends
    In a limousine (going back to Chinatown)

    Three's not a crowd to her, she says ( [incomprehensible]!)
    "Room 714, I'll be waiting"
    When I get there she's got incense, wine, and candles
    It's such a freaky scene

    That girl is pretty kinky (the girl's a super freak)
    The kind of girl you read about (in new wave magazines)
    That girl is pretty wild now (the girl's a super freak)
    I really like to taste her *slurp* (every time we meet)
    She's all right, she's all right
    That's girl's all right with me
    Yeah
    Hey hey, hey, hey!

    She's a super freak, super freak
    She's super freaky, yow
    Temptations sing!
    (Ohhhhhh)
    Super freak, super freak
    That girl's a super freak
    (Ohhhhhh)

    She's a very kinky girl
    The kind you won't take home to mother
    And she will never let your spirits down
    Once you get her off the street
    Blow, Danny!
