DON'T CALL IT A COMEBACK
I'VE BEEN HERE FOR YEARS


Exhibit 1: In Which Tony Randall And Jack Klugman Massacre "You're So Vain" In Character

Exhibit 2: In Which Rolf Harris, Wobble Board And All, Buys A Stairway To Heaven (All together now!)

Exhibit 3: In Which Der Bingle Takes A Sad Song And Makes It Better

Exhibit 4: In Which Trent Reznor And George Clinton Had A Baby And They Named It Closer

Exhibit 5: Guess Who Is Covering The Beatles Here And Win A Shine Box, Which You Can Then Go Back To (aw, crap, did I give too much away?)


Addendum: If ever a song desperately cried out to be in a John Waters movie, this would be it.

I highly suspect there was no Trent Reznor in that song!

I think he got near the baby just enough to smack it and make it cry.

"Closer" via G. Clinton = BEST FARM PORN SOUNDTRACK. EVER. Seriously. Especially if you know the words. Because, well. Y'know.

So far (as I'm still eating breakfast right now) this little collection has made my day.

I bet you do a mean Rolf Harris.

Howdy, Spatch man. I had something I was gonna post for you, but wasn't sure if you were reading while you were away. Gotta see if I can remember what that was.

I'm pretty sure that's the Man In Black singing his best phonetic German. Rock & roll caught on pretty big in West Germany, and it wasn't uncommon for English-singing artists to record German-language versions of their songs for the public consumption. The Beatles spent quite a bit of the early 1960s playing clubs in Hamburg's red-light district, even going back and forth during their up-and-coming Cavern Club days and cutting a few German singles. You can find the German-language "Sie liebt dich" and "Komm gib mir deine Hand" around on some compilations or even *gasp* online if you look hard enough.

Heck, even Petula Clark got in on the act.
