When William Shatner is King

When William Shatner is King this kind of music will be sung by everyone.

Until then we're going to have to make do with these demented gems...

Mr Tambourine Man takes on The Byrds and Dylan and kicks both their asses. The phrasing, the polyphony, the sheer drugged out balls to the wall HELL of this is exceeded only by:

Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds which seems to suck all the acid out of John, Paul and George, give it all to Ringo in a spinal drip and then shake things up a bit by adding some drugs references. We should worship this man. Some do.

These Poor Sods for One

Anyway, both these tracks are exceeded in modern music only by Shatner's delerious take on Elton John's 'Rocket Man' "....and i'll be...HIGH as a KITE by then...." but you'll have to find that yourself...

Trust me

Why? Why?!? Why did I buy that CD of William Shatner and Leonard Nimoy?!?! Leonard Nimoy's version of "I Walk The Line" will haunt me forever.
