Hot Slut Of The Day!

March 9, 2014 / Posted by:

Duke, the British one hit wonder from 1997 with a voice like a prepubescent Justin Timberlake, the mysterious looks of Powder as a DC Comics villain and the style of an assistant manager at Chess King.

Dlisted reader Brittany sent me an email the other day that reached into the trash heap of wet foolery that is my memory box and pulled out Duke’s “So In Love With You” from 1997. “So In Love With You” was Duke’s only hit in the US and my only real memory of the song is watching my drunk middle-aged tia and my drunk middle-aged tio freak danc to it on the concrete patio of my cousin’s backyard wedding as my abuelita condemned them to slut hell with her eyes as she sipped on hot water and lemon from a Garfield mug.

I’ll let Brittany describe the glory and charisma of Duke!

After Marvin Gaye, and before Robin Thicke, there was Duke. At the time, I thought “So In Love With You” was a genuine old-ass disco song by someone like The Gap Band or indeed Marvin Gaye. I had no idea the artist was a contemporary white British guy. Duke should be HSOTD for the following reasons:

1.) 1997.
2.) That facial hair!
3.) Those eyebrows!
4.) The best impersonation of Robin Thicke impersonating Marvin Gaye.
5.) The best impersonation of Robin Thicke impersonating Duke impersonating Robin Thicke — yeah, Duke was that good. So ahead of his time!
6.) Craig Wedren.

I don’t know if I should hate Brittany a lot or hate her just a little for making me think of Craig Wedren again.

And on top of all of that, the video for So In Love With You was like a tool the bald Michael Stipe-looking evil leader of a cult would use to his hypnotize his disciples:

If you looked deep into Duke’s creepy, hypnotizing eyes during that video and now you have the sudden urge to put on a white nehru collar jacket from Structure and shave your head, you’ve just been Duke’d. Go with it.
