Today’s playlist is a pretty simple compilation related to cover songs and legendary artist tributes. I'm in a bit of a creative funk today, and can’t seem to come up with any noteworthy original content. Therefore, I’m going to employ the old tried and true method of leeching onto the success of others in order to bring attention back upon myself. As bottom feeder as that sounds, I’ve recently decided that my creative moral compass need only be pursuant to the actions and limitations set forth by any Jim Henson creation collectively termed as a Muppet.
Recently, I stumbled upon what could possibly be not only the greatest Queen cover of all time, but what is likely to be the greatest song cover known to man, period. While I feebly attempted to put together my own list of somewhat noteworthy covers, it seems only fitting that you bear witness to this rendition of Bohemian Rhapsody featuring my favorite Muppet characters - Gonzo, Camilla, Animal, King Prawn, Beeker, all of Dr. Mayhem and the Electric Teeth, plus Sam the Eagle and of course the Swedish Chef. Carry on people, carry on…but whatever you do, make sure you watch minutes 1:51-2:06 as you wouldn’t wan to miss the “silhouetteo of a clam.”
Now, for a few other tribute songs, listen to the full "Cover Me Elmo" playlist here:
