Daniel Merriweather Has A Really Nice Mouth

When last we saw 26-year-old Aussie Daniel Merriweather, he made a dent in the U.K. chart with his and Mark Ronson's cover of The Smiths' "Stop Me If You Think You've Heard This One Before" (shortened, for their version, to simply "Stop Me"), which eventually hit #2 in spring 2007.

This week he again cracks the U.K. Top 10, at #8 with his debut blue-eyed-soul solo single, "Changes."

Here's Merriweather and Ronson at the MTV VMAs last fall:

I like to imagine that, much like Mark's sister Samantha munches on Lindsay Lohan's chowder mop, these two are ramming each other's cans on a regular basis. Daniel just has that "I fuck for tracks" kind of face. (Reminder to go buy some blank sheet music...)

Mark produced "Changes," which also features rapping by Wale.

Here's the vid:

I'd write more, but I gotta go bring my computer to the bedroom for a bit.
