King Crimson’s Robert Fripp & Toyah Willcox Cover Right Said Fred’s “I’m Too Sexy”

0

With King Crimson guitarist Robert Fripp now home from tour, he and his wife, the actress and singer Toyah Willcox, have been experimenting with the format of their weekly Sunday Lunch cover videos. While the couple edited together Toyah’s solo covers and Fripp’s hotel room reactions during his absence, his return has seen this format extended only within the two in the same room, as one performs while the other watches in their world famous kitchen.

While last week’s video saw Toyah perform The Rolling Stones’ “Sympathy for the Devil” while Robert looked on, this week it’s Robert taking center stage with a rendition of Right Said Fred’s enduring 1991 hit “I’m Too Sexy,” complete with some modified lyrics. Toyah agrees with the song’s refrain with regards to her husband’s sex appeal and spends most of the video smiling and bobbing about before yelling “He’s sexy!” into the camera.

You can watch the pair’s latest below.

Some recent songs Toyah covered for Fripp include The Doors’ “Light My Fire,” Divinyls’ “I Touch Myself,” Chris Isaak’s “Wicked Game,” and “Because the Night” (Patti Smith, 10,000 Maniacs).
