Mr Bass Man
Posted by shanoah on April 8, 2010
Well, today I decided to play a song from 1963 by Johnny Cymbal called Mr. Bass Man. It’s rather fun, though it can get a bit annoying at times. Which might go a way to explaining why I have three versions of it in todays post. 🙂
This is the original.
Now, as it happens, the Muppet Show covered it, with Scooter as lead singer, and The Electric Mayhem backing him. This versions fairly faithful to the song, and is a good cover.
Now, if I wanted to do a bad cover of this song, a proper one would involve coming up with a J-Pop version of it sung in Engrish, sort of a “All Your Bass Man Are Belongs To Us” version. And as it happens, I managed to find a cover that fits that. Play the following version at your own risk. ^_^
