Ease On Down the Road

Posted by shanoah on April 12, 2010

And here we are with the Muppet show again. Here we are with Jean Pierre Rampal acting out the story of the Pied Piper. Only the rats weren’t happy with the story and changed it. And then suddenly everyone starts singing a cover of ‘Ease On Down The Road’.

Well, you can tell Jean Pierre is very talented, and the cover isn’t bad. And I love how random it is…

Of course, the song Ease On Down The Road comes from the musical The Wiz, and fun as the version on the Muppet Show might be, it’s hard to beat the version with Michael Jackson & Diana Ross…

Smooth Criminal

Posted by shanoah on August 31, 2009

Well, I’m sort of continuing with the mashup theme.

This isn’t actually a song mashup but a video mashup, though.

It starts out with a scene from the Fred Astaire movie Daddy Long Legs (1955), and then switches to scenes from The Band Wagon (1953). The music, however, is Michael Jackson‘s Smooth Criminal.

So the overall effect is that of Fred Astaire dancing to Smooth Criminal. And, surprisingly, it works very well. And you can tell that Michael Jackson got inspiration from Fred Astaire…

The video was done by AbejaMariposaJr.

Say

Posted by shanoah on June 25, 2009

All right, you know it’s bad when you can keep celebrities dying going as a theme.

Ed McMahon died yesterday, and apparently Michael Jackson died today. Reasons for his death haven’t yet been announced.

So, I thought I’d play the music video for Say Say Say, performed by Michael Jackson and Paul McCartney today. (Wonder what becomes of the Beatles music catalog?)

And as a bonus, I’ll throw in both of them singing The Man. And, no, Paul is not dead; it just worked out that both songs I played had him in them…
