Like the song, but can't help but picture Adam Sandler singing this. I wonder if his little singing skits were at all influenced by them.

Female of the Species is indeed more beautiful, whereas this song is fun, but also a bit silly of course.

Only 5.5 for this seems little harsh.

Really?????? In modern parlance emasculated generally means to make something weaker/worse rather than the older definition of removing a man's masculinity, but I should have known better than to expect you to know or understand the nuances of the English language!!

Lyrically brilliant... not sure about the music, though. And I think words look better with 'u's in them.
Interestingly, if you're concerned with superfluity in the English language, read the following by your very own Samuel Clemens:
.
"...For example, in Year 1 that useless letter "c" would be dropped to be replased either by "k" or "s", and likewise "x" would no longer be part of the alphabet. The only kase in which "c" would be retained would be the "ch" formation, which will be dealt with later. Year 2 might reform "w" spelling, so that "which" and "one" would take the same konsonant, wile Year 3 might well abolish "y" replasing it with "i" and iear 4 might fiks the "g/j" anomali wonse and for all.
.
Generally, then, the improvement would kontinue iear bai iear with iear 5 doing awai with useless double konsonants, and iears 6-12 or so modifaiing vowlz and the rimeiniing voist and unvoist konsonants. Bai iear 15 or sou, it wud fainali bi posibl tu meik ius ov thi ridandant letez "c", "y" and "x"— bai now jast a memori in the maindz ov ould doderez —tu riplais "ch", "sh", and "th" rispektivili.
.
Fainali, xen, aafte sam 20 iers ov orxogrefkl riform, wi wud hev alojikl, kohirnt speling in ius xrewawt xe Ingliy-spiking werld."

Nice upbeat tempo, catchy melody, interesting effects. Can't see why this has such a low rating. Oh wait, thin skinned folk whose sense of compartmentalized reality is offended by lyrics.  Yeah that must be the thing.  Good thing they don't have hacking skills or RP might be in trouble.

"Who lives in a house like this?" was the catchphrase of a strangely popular UK TV show Through the Keyhole, where the inimitable and quite irritating Lloyd Grossman would go through a celeb's house and invite the panellists and audience to guess who it belongs to. The 'celebrities' were usually attention-seeking D-list pillocks. I'd have made the effort to watch the prog were some of the folk described in this song - serial killer, butch queen, transvestite - to feature.

The Space logo on the album cover threw me for a while.
Turns out that they have nothing in common with the pretty far out french synth band Space from the seventies.
The logo is verry similar...

I dig the obnoxius English though.

Think of the Economy. How many man-hours are lost each year due to extra "u"'s and the like? A recent study showed that the UK is losing $100,000 pounds a year just on their refusal to spell 'donut' properly. Fortunately, the next generation will resolve all this with their cellphone chat spelling which bans all vowels.
