An Early (and Oddly High-Pitched) Clue to the New Direction

And speaking of "Stairway to Heaven," as we were downstairs...

From I'm not exactly sure when (although it's from some Morning Zoo-ish radio show from somewhere, obviously) please enjoy Mary Schneider, the self-proclaimed Yodelling Queen of Australia, and her yodel version of the Led Zeppelin classic.




As you may have guessed, I prefer Mary's take on the tune to Zappa's, but then again, as Chuck Barris used to say -- what do I know? I like cold toilet seats.

In any case, as always, a coveted PowerPop No-Prize will be awarded the first reader to glean the clip's relevance to the theme of tomorrow's Weekend Listomania.

OK, I would pay for a full recording of that!

For the clue part, hmmm, best no word singing in a post Elvis pop song?
