When Pigs Fly

I just discovered an album on iTunes Music Store that I do not believe I will buy, though I confess I wouldn't mind listening to it once or twice. It's called "When Pigs Fly: Songs You Never Thought You'd Hear" and it features some very odd tracks:

  • CSN&Y's song "Ohio", performed by Devo.
  • Peter Gabriel's "Shock the Monkey", performed by Don Ho!
  • AC-DC's "Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap", performed by Leslie Gore!! (With a certain amount of flair, I might add, though it's a far cry from "It's My Party".)

Wow.

I've heard snippets of the tunes off that album. Peter Noone does a wonderful version of "White Wedding"--still sounds just like the old Herman.

Tiny Tim did a great album called "Rock" where he used his falsetto to impressive effect on "Stairway to Heaven"--and did the most frightening version of "Highway to Hell" that you're apt to hear (he meant it too).

I personally think anything by Don Ho might be worth the price of the album!

I listened to about 30 seconds of Mr. Ho; I'm not so sure, myself.
