Bohemian Like You (3:28)

Cover of Thirteen Tales From Urban Bohemia

From Thirteen Tales From Urban Bohemia and 172 other releases

“Bohemian Like You” is a song by American alternative rock band The Dandy Warhols. It was released in 2000 as a single from the band’s third studio album Thirteen Tales From Urban Bohemia. The Bohemian Like You Songfacts explains it was inspired by a girl in a car that Courtney Taylor-Taylor, the Dandy Warhols’ guitarist and principal songwriter, found himself fantasizing about as was idly looking out of his apartment window watching traffic pull up at the lights below.

On its original release, it just missed the Top 40 in the UK, peaking at #42. However, it was re-released in 2001, after featuring in a popular Vodafone ad, and peaked at #5.

The intro of the song is reminiscent of The Specials’ “Little Bitch”, and the song features riffs similar to The Rolling Stones’ “Brown Sugar”.

The song’s video is controversial and gets little daytime airplay, since it features full-frontal male nudity and topless female nudity (with the woman’s pubic area covered by her leg). However, when played on some music channels these areas are pixelated.

The song has also been featured in the movies Igby Goes Down, Flushed Away, Little Nicky and Man of the Year as well as the opening to the episode “Longshot” from the television show Numb3rs. It was also featured on a Vodafone advertisement. For many years it has been the theme music for the BBC Radio phone-in show 6-0-6.
