Depeche Mode have recorded a version of their new single "Suffer Well" in 'Simlish,' a language spoken by characters in the popular Sims video game. The song appears in the new expansion pack, The Sims 2: Open For Business.
Call him "Mel Gahan."
I hope EA pursues more high-profile "Sims bop" in the future.
I'd like to hear System of a Down1 in Simlish, or a negro spiritual.
1 I initially wrote "Sigur Rós," but then realized that a Sigur Rós song would probably sound the same in Simlish.
"WHERE IS HIS COMPUTER?" is my new favorite Jack Bauer yell.
Next week: I don't think there will be a return journey, Mr. McGill.
