Midweek Madness gets in Shakira groove thanks to Oxford University students

ShakiraUniversity of Oxford

Your Midweek Madness supplier confesses ignorance of Shakira. Please forgive.

The first awareness of this global sensation came a couple days ago with the accidental discovery of a cover made of one of Shakira's mega-hits, "Hips Don't Lie," sung by an a cappella ensemble of Oxford University students called Out of the Blue. (They've been raising money to support a children's hospice with downloads of the performance.)

The infectious Out of the Blue video has gone viral, needless to say, so it is posted here only for the benefit of those few who remain pitifully unaware of Shakira's "Hips Don't Lie" or a bunch of "Glee"-worthy, wiggling warblers from a posh British school. (If you have at least a fraction of a camp gene in your DNA, the video should be even more enjoyable.)

So give your midweek life a big lift and shake those truth-telling hips. Make a donation, too.
