Three albums in and thanks to clever little touches here and there, Richard Cheese's "swankifying" of pop hits hasn't worn out its welcome. If you're not familiar, Cheese is a fake Las Vegas-styled lounge act who takes tracks like Mötley Crüe's "Girls, Girls, Girls" or Snoop Dogg's "Gin and Juice" and delivers them in a finger-snapping, Rat Pack manner. He's always stuck in the late show with some blue and occasionally sick humor – a children's choir appears on his version of Michael Jackson's "Beat It" – seeping through and betraying his squeaky clean grin.
