Hadn't seen it, now am rabidly in love with the band.

Seriously great job on the mash-ups. Who thinks to create a song, "Dreamin' of a Whole Lotta Breakfast"? Or who would combine "Sweet Child of Mine", "Workin' for the Weekend", and "Livin' on a Prayer" into one glorious piece?

And Wakko Warner is the lead singer?? CRAZY!

I loved this and Wakko DOES make it better! I just wish he would say "Helllloooooooooooooo, Nurse!" somewhere in there...

This reminds me of the Rhino Records group Big Daddy but updated. Even the history is similar.

    In August of 1959, the group — which played the kind of music most groups played back then — was booked on a USO tour of Southeast Asia. Someone made a wrong turn and they wound up missing in action...captured by Laotian revolutionaries and abandoned by the United States which then had a non-interventionist neutral policy towards the region. There was also no one at the U.S. State Department who cared a lot about rock 'n' roll bands or thought it would be a shame if one disappeared forever.

    They were held captive for decades...but returning U.S. troops passed on rumors and eventually in 1983, a Special Forces brigade made a daring rescue and our heroes finally returned to American soil. They had missed all that happened to music in the intervening years and didn't like what they now heard on the radio. Convinced that contemporary youth would appreciate the classic sound, they began "fixing" current tunes, rendering them in the only good style of music...the style of the fifties. And that's pretty much the story of Big Daddy as it was told in the press releases for their albums.


While I am partial to their version of Super-Freak, I can't find that online, so here's their Duane Eddy-ish version of the Star Wars theme instead. The youtube video is just the song with a static image btw.

Big Daddy was SWEET. I loved their version of "Nothing Compares To You" as done by Little Richard. I remember staying up late & hearing them on Dr. Demento. Thanks for refreshing the memories!

Also, got my Rock Sugar CD two days ago. It is awesome. "I Love Sugar On Me" is an absolutely fantastic song for cooling down from a workout.
