Take Cover: You Oughta Be Proud That I'm Getting Good Marksssss

Sad Kermit: "Needle In The Hay" (Elliott Smith)

Your regularly scheduled weekly column, in which I uncover (pun) and discuss a well-done cover song worth your time, will return next week. For now, let me interrupt standard programming to bring you something that will make you thank your lucky stars that the Internet is still the Internet and that we can have nice things like this, because the real wealth of human existence is our endless treasure trove of creativity and also communal pop culture, and we are truly blessed to live in a world where someday our children and grandchildren can know a Kermit the Frog of multiple moods and variations, including what might be termed his "Blue Period" (because it's not easy being green!), when he denigrated into a lifestyle of drugs and crime and depression while watching The Royal Tenenbaums on repeat, all of which came to a rather ugly head in his hit ballad, "The Rainbow Disconnection."



Check out Sad Kermit's whole discography here. (Radiohead's "Creep" is notable.)

this is, remarkably, a really accurate cover. even the vocal panning. weird.

Ben said...

wait, so, this doesn't really count as a cover as it is just kermit lip syncing an elliott smith song, right?

Caroline said...

well that certainly isn't elliott smith's voice. someone else is singing it (kermit, i know, but obviously he is a puppet).

here's one if you really want a bone-a-fide cover
