2016 has been awful for too many reasons to name, but artist Missy Modell nailed a LOT of the problems women faced — in a single parody song!
For Miz Modell’s depressingly funny track, she sings an updated version of How Lovely To Be a Woman from Bye Bye Birdie — with lyrics about p*ssy grabbing, mansplaining, and just overall how women are treated dreadfully by men in 2016!
Missy recreates Ann-Margret‘s bedroom choreo as she sings:
“How wonderful to know the things a woman knows / How thrilling to be raped on a date then blamed for wearing tight clothes.”
What’s AH-Mazing about the parody though, is the songstress released it to help promote Planned Parenthood — which has been under CONSTANT attack this year by far right-wingers — and took to Instagram to post a special message (below):
“In case you missed it, I paid homage to my favorite musical #byebyebirdie to encourage support for @plannedparenthood @ppact . Let’s get this extremely important organization some donations for the holiday and beyond! Thank you to the most incredible team who made this dream come true @nicstanich@thatbensheehan @vornietom@leahmmann @websmusic . Share and enjoy! Here we come 2017. Full video link in bio #howlovelytobeawomanin2016”
Do you like Miz Modell’s version How Lovely better than the original?
