None of you would truly listen to them, and might end up disliking me and / or the blog, because there are some truly bad things out there.
I mean, do you really want to hear Paul Anka sing "Smells Like Teen Spirit"? Edie and Steve covering "Black Hole Sun"?
Yeah, it sounds fun(ny)...........until it isn't.
Still, I can't let one go. And it's brand new.
I was touting, just a few weeks back, the Monkees and their song "Words". Actually, now that I look back, it was two months ago!
But I caught a pic online of three-fourths of R.E.M. sitting with Micky Dolenz - the only surviving Monkee. Maybe surviving should be in quotes.
Dolenz allegedly has a new EP out, though I can't seem to locate it - though that might not be a bad thing.
Dolenz Sings R.E.M..
I shit you not.
I believe the man is 78 years old now, so in a way he's earned the right to do what he wants. I just don't see why there has to be collateral damage.
While the image of R.E.M sitting with Dolenz makes it sound like they're behind this project - I don't know that for a fact. I'd say the band would get royalties, but to cash in on those, someone's gonna have to buy the music, or worse, play it.
Gentlemen and Ladies, I give you "Shiny Happy People".
