I was checking things out at Ozzy.com and they are selling a box set called “Bible of OZZ”. One of the discs is called “Oddities and Duets”. One track is a duet with Ozzy and MISS PIGGY. Yep the OZ Man and Miss Piggy singing “Born to be Wild”.
That has to be worth the price of the set.
So, are there any other truely strange duets I should look out for?
I saw that. It was Eminem’s “Stan” at the MTV… VMAs? I think. Anyway, it was pretty good. Eminem makes a reference to it ("…since me and Elton played career Russian roulette") in “Business” from The Eminem Show, his third album.
I heard a song by Nelly (the rapper, not Furtado) with Tim McGraw tonight. I can’t say whether it was good or not after hearing it just the one time (and even then, not very well), but it’s certainly an interesting pair.
Little Nemo, I was just coming in to nominate that one. I saw this album at Borders, I think it was called “When Pigs Fly” and it was filled with strange covers, like Devo doing “Ohio.” But the next time I went, it was gone, and nobody else had ever heard of it. I’m glad I didn’t imagine it.
Devo doing a cover of “Ohio” really isn’t that strange. At least one member of the group (Devo fans, please tell me who) was a student at Kent State in May 1970 and actually witnessed the shootings by the National Guard that was the subject of the song.
