Where do I start? How about the first track: The theme to the Muppet Show in HEBREW.
There are a couple of excellent mashups, namely 'We Will Rock Your Dirty Deeds' (ACDC vs. Queen) and 'Call Me Hung Up' (Madonna vs. Blondie.) The other mashup, 'You Believe Me All Night Long' (Cher vs. ACDC) is a little harder to wrap my little ol' brain around, but a hoot nonetheless!
Excellent covers abound: Shonen Knife covering the Runaways' 'Cherry Bomb' (herro, daddy, herro mom, ch-ch-ch-ch-ch-ch-ch-ch-cherry bomb!); an insanely enjoyable cover of 'Ghost Riders in the Sky' by Finnish death-metal band Impaled Nazarene; a spot-on cover of the Beatles' 'Drive My Car' by the Donnas and Patti Smith's great renditions of 'When Doves Cry' and 'Gimme Shelter.' The Los Futuristas cover of 'Now I Wanna Be Your Dog' is just crazy. Think Spanish lounge music. 'Layla' by 386 Dx is wonderful for a despairing drunk afternoon in the local pub.
There's a nice radio spot from 1970 advertising the Stooges to break up the musical manna filling the ears....and a killer skit called 'Spicy Pony Head' by Kasper Hauser. I almost drove off the road I was laughing so hard ('eet ees a pony head but, uh...spicy...')
That's not all- in the "So Crap it's Hysterical' category there's a cover of 'Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band' by Bill Cosby.......and that's so much more enjoyable than the excruciating cover of 'I Write the Songs' By Chuck Woolery. Really. And it's marginally better than Barry Manilow, but that's like saying a rotted fish head on your plate is better without the eye still in it....
I hesitate to include the Who's 'Girl's Eyes' in the category above, but it's still a contender - terrible song performed without any sack whatsoever.
'Super Jupiter' from 'Odyssey!Original Cast' I had never heard before- probably with good reason. Rhyming 'super jupiter' with 'super dupiter' has to be a crime somewhere.
This CD is staying in my car for the summer! Wombats Rock!
