Paul Anka covering contemporary music.
According to DeDurkheim:
You must listen to "Smells like Teen Spirit," "Jump," "It's my Life," and "Blackhole Sun" as only Paul Anka can do them. This record just came out and for reasons that I am sure Paul Anka did not intend, I love these songs! Just click on the link for the first song and listen to them.
Damn it! Some of these arrangements work! Try the Ankanator's cover of "Wonderwall." Man, I need a drink.
Not as badly as I.
I'll be honest, my most vivid image of Paul Anka is not "She's Having My Baby" or anything like that. It's this:
Mystery Science Theater 3000's Girlstown. He looked roughly like this as he massacred the "Ave Maria," dodged a psycho stalker (who solves her stalking problem by becoming a nun), is outfought by another, older nun, roughs up Mel Torme, whines about being lonely, and, oh, all kinds of stuff, culminating (presumably) in Good Catholic Sex with Mamie VanDoren:
But I don't have the courage to listen to him sing "Smells Like Teen Spirit," I have to say. Aiiieee!
