"Yo, I'm late for my bassooooon lesson"
Chuck is forgetting that the bassoon solo is not an anomaly, but, in fact, what makes
a good pop song. Bassoons is necessary ingredienz, dawg. Check out "Jennifer Juniper" by Donovan, "Tears of a Clown" by Smokey Robinson & the Miracles, or "Greenman" by XTC if you doubt me. Which you shouldn't. Doubt me, that is. For I am your Lord and Master and you shall hold me in Great Esteem. Now if I could just get my paws on some fake pointy ears...
Spock: Psychedelic 60's Chick Magnet
Let us all hold hands and dance in celebration of the fine, lengthy recording career of a nice Jewish Boy named Leonard Nimoy
. We've probably all heard his cover of "Proud Mary," but nothing beats the highly condensed epic tale, "The Ballad of Bilbo Baggins." In 2:18, Nimoy reduces The Hobbit
to a poppy lil' tune with a bassoon solo (!). But -- even better -- there's a VIDEO!
The best part of the video, besides Nimoy's shiny black hair and mod outfit, are the hot 60's chicks wearing fake Spock ears whilst they prance and shimmy about. I have to say, this kicks ass over Led Zeppelin's interpretation of Tolkien
