Songful Style: Witch Doctor by Ross Bagdasarian

Welcome to November’s edition of Songful Style! Hosted by myself, Shelbee (Shelbee on the Edge) and Marsha (Marsha in the Middle) Songful Style is a collaboration featuring outfits inspired by songs. We’re also inviting anyone who would like to join us, to post their own outfits in the link-up below. It doesn’t matter from what angle the song inspires the outfit, it can be from the lyrics, the title, the tune itself, the album cover, music video, etc. Last month our song was Look What You Made Me Do by Taylor Swift and was chosen by me. This month, our Songful Style song was chosen by Shelbee and is Witch Doctor by Ross Bagdasarian.

So, how on earth does one style an outfit based on such a fun, yet way out song? Hm?? Not easy, right? Where to turn? Well… to Alvin and the Chipmunks of course! So, I looked at the most recent version of Alvin and his buddies’ series and checked out what Alvin was wearing. A hoodie. Simple. So, I put on my red Superdry hoodie and teamed it with a pair of wide-legged blue jeans from H&M, as well as my newest pair of platform sneakers (Puma) and grabbed my camera and tripod for a few easy pics.

Not what you might think of when you think of the words Witch Doctor though, right?! LOL! But it’s my interpretation and an interpretation that needed to be done in a hurry. You see, we’ve literally just got back from our impromptu trip to Switzerland (yesterday) and I have had no time to even think about our Songful Style post over the past few weeks. So it was fortunate that it ended up inspiring such a simple look lol!

Next month there will way more thought put into the style post, as the next song, chosen by Marsha is Here to Forever by Death Cab for Cutie. I’m excited to style that one, it should be fun! For now though, let’s see how the others have styled this fun style prompt, Witch Doctor. Did you join in this month? If so, please don’t forget to add your links to the link-up, below! See you soon! x

Witch Doctor LYRICS:
Hey witch doctor, give us the magic words
All right, you go ooh ee ooh ah ah ting tang walla walla bing bang
All right

Ooh ee ooh ah ah ting tang walla walla bing bang
Ooh ee ooh ah ah ting tang walla walla bang bang
Ooh ee ooh ah ah ting tang walla walla bing bang
Ooh ee ooh ah ah ting tang walla walla bang bang
Doh, doh, doh, doh, doh, doh, doh

Ooh ee ooh ah ah ting tang walla walla bing bang
Ooh ee ooh ah ah ting tang walla walla bang bang
Ooh ee ooh ah ah ting tang walla walla bing bang
Ooh ee ooh ah ah ting ting walla walla bang bang
Doh, doh, doh, doh

I told the witch doctor, I was in love with you
Doh, doh, doh, doh
I told the witch doctor, I was in love with you
Doh, doh, doh, doh
And than the witch doctor, he told me what to do
He told me

Ooh ee ooh ah ah ting tang walla walla bing bang
Ooh ee ooh ah ah ting tang walla walla bang bang
Ooh ee ooh ah ah ting tang walla walla bing bang
Ooh ee ooh ah ah ting tang wall awalla bang bang
Doh, doh, doh, doh

I told the witch doctor, you didn't love me true
Doh, doh, doh, doh
I told the witch doctor, you didn't love me nice
Doh, doh, doh, doh
And than the witch doctor, he gave me this advice

Ooh ee ooh ah ah ting tang walla walla bing bang
Ooh ee ooh ah ah ting tang walla walla bang bang
Ooh ee ooh ah ah ting tang walla walla bing bang
Ooh ee ooh ah ah ting tang walla walla bang bang

You can keep your love from me just like you were a miser
And I'll admit it wasn't very smart (ey-ey-ey-ey)
So I went out to find myself a guy that's so much wiser
And he told me the way to win your heart
Doh, doh, doh, doh, doh, doh, doh

Ooh ee ooh ah ah (doh, doh, doh, doh, doh, doh, doh)
Ooh ee ooh ah ah (Doh, doh, doh, doh, doh, doh, doh)
Ooh ee ooh ah ah (Doh, doh, doh, doh, doh, doh, doh)
Ooh ee ooh ah ah ting tang walla walla bang bang
Come on and

Ooh ee ooh ah ah ting tang walla walla bing bang
Ooh ee ooh ah ah ting tang walla walla bang bang
Ooh ee ooh ah ah ting tang walla walla bing bang
Ooh ee ooh ah ah ting tang walla walla bang bang

    Good move to copy Alvin! I’d never heard of this song before. I know what it’s like to go away without thinking about a challenge – I had the same problem when I was in Plymouth last week! I had to buy a couple of things xx

    Oh boy, what a fun interpretation! I love it when people go a bit sideways with their outfit and I don’t immediately see the connection. With wide jeans and chunky white sneakers making a comeback, this outfit would have worked for an 80s/90s Alvin also 🙂
