Popeye Sings The Hits of Yesterday and Today

Posted on

Here’s an idea that’s perfect for this age of branding and synergy. Take an iconic cartoon hero – Popeye – and unleash his distinctive voice and phrasings on some of the biggest pop hits of the past 50 years. What could go wrong? Consider these tracks:

I KISSED A GOYL

SMELLS LIKE TEEN SPINACH

GOOD VIBRAYSHKINS

I LEFT ME HAT IN SAN FRANCISCO

WELL, BLOW ME DOWNTOWN

SAVE THE LAST CAN FOR ME

WHAT I YAM

HOUND DOG-GOG-GOG

WE ARE THE WOYLD

I ONLY HAVE EYE FOR YOU

THE NIGHT THEY DROVE OLD WIMPY DOWN

BEYOND THE SEA HAG

I’VE GOT YOU UNDER ME SKIN

If this works, we move on to Elmer Fudd (“Hit The Woad, Jack”). In the meantime, feel free to add to The List!
