|11:09 pm - whimsical will sounds like tom lehrer compared to this guy|
You remember about a year or so ago when I found that Eurotrash club cover of "Ode To Billy Joe" and we all had a mighty good laff-n-cringe over it? And how I said I believed I'd found the most laughably awful song ever?
Well, it's been replaced by what sounds to be a wacky morning DJ's fusion of Dukes Of Hazzard and what he thinks is hip-hop.
He calls it "Duke-Op."
You should go out and treat yourself to some delicious ice cream if you can listen through it entirely on your first try.
A little bit of me died just then.
Just then... somewhere right before the line about Daisy Duke working her shorts...
And there was great sadness.

I swear, I got as far as the Public Enemy bite and had to stop.

Ice cream for me
I don't know what he was trying for... it was like he was trying to write a song about a show he didn't know anything about. Mostly it's name-dropping of the characters over some sample loops that weren't even from the show — what was with that air raid siren? And then he ended with the tagline of an entirely different TV show. Fascinating.

This is physically painful.
I blame you, spatch. You are a bad, bad man.

Re: Ice cream for me
I think it is not an air raid siren. I think it is yodelling.
But mostly I feel bad for the Skynyrd. It don't deserve that.
I'm not even halfway through, and I want to kill somebody. The only available target right now is me, and I'm okay with that.
I made it all the way through, but I don't think ice cream is going to ease the pain.
How sad is it that I know who Whimsical Will is, and probably hold an opinion of him similar to yours? And while we're on a Doctor Demento-related subject, this reminds me that sometime I'll have to voice my opinion on the 'big star' of 'funny music' in recent years, the Great Luke Ski.
Whimsical Will's schtick is just a continuation of Buchanan & Goodman's "Flying Saucer" novelty record schtick, only now instead of being called "break-ins", it's called "sampling." It's hard to keep that fresh and funny after a zillion bouts of The Demented News, and I really don't like the guy's loopy deliveryyyyyy!
Right. When I first heard him, I couldn't stand him, then I thought he was okay...and now, ten years later when I've rediscovered the show, I don't like him. (Of course, there's not much I like on the show now. Makes you wonder why I still listen.)
I made it through 27 seconds before I felt my ears begin to bleed and had to turn it off. I think I should get credit for making it to the first "chorus".
Ok, you made it thru to the chorus, that's worth at least a Hoodsie Cup. :)
(What really annoys me is that he's sampling "Sweet Home Alabama" when everybody knows Hazzard County was in Georgia!)

That's Crank, right?
I can't tell you how excited I am to see Crank
Noah (though I think those were Lenny Bruce's last words, too)
Re: That's Crank, right?
Oh, it's Crank, all right. I think he's my new hero.
