I heard a muzak version of that song last week in an elevator. This must be a sure sign the apocalypse is upon us.

Great find. This song has been covered so many times. I particularly like Tory Amos' pensive version, which I think was recently ripped off by some newer female singer/piano chick.

This version really reminds me of Richard Cheese. Ever heard of him? He does lounge covers of popular songs. Some of it is awesome. All of it is weird.

Ummmm..... Ahhhhh.... What the? That's without a doubt one of the most bizarre things I have seen in awhile. Richard Cheese is at least tongue in cheek, this... ummmmm.... ahhhhhh....

Just one of many disturbing songs on perhaps the most bizarre album I've ever heard.

(It was playing as background music in an uno's I think -- just weird...)
