Way Out Wednesday: Rerun Rock

Written by Music, Way Out Wednesday

This week’s selections are from an album called Rerun Rock. The concept for this album is this: How would classic TV theme songs sound if they were performed by famous singers? The first one here (and the one originally released as a single to test the waters) is called “Bedrock Rap,” and it’s the Flintstones theme as done by Bruce Springsteen (or “Springstone,” if you will).

This second one comes way out of left field, which is what adds to the craziness of it. It’s the theme from Rawhide done in the style of Michael Jackson. They throw a lot of “Billie Jean” into the mix, but that doesn’t keep it from sounding downright bizarre.

If you want to hear some more strange pairings, like Bob Dylan with The Patty Duke Show, Frank Sinatra with The Addams Family, Elvis Presley with Casper and more, you can download the entire album here.
