Obscure Tribute To That Big Green Rubbery Guy
One of our commenters mentioned this ancient artifact from the 20th Century and we thought it might be fun to post it, if only for the Beatles re-write by Flo & Eddie (The Turtles/The Mothers) that captures the fab’s psych years in a rich parody of/homage to “Strawberry Fields Forever” and “I Am The Walrus” (“all we are saying, is give Gumby a chance”). There’s some other fun stuff here as well, including Dweezil & Moon Unit Zappa’s original tribute, Sly & Robbie, Jonathan Richman and even Francis Albert’s kid, Frank Sinatra, Jr., taking an extremely weak swing at the show’s theme song (the kid never really had the chops). All but three of the contributions are original compositions.
