While I’ve joined the Rage Against the Machine For Christmas #1 group on Facebook — their goal is to get a fifteen year old song to be the Christmas number one in defiance of Simon Cowell’s X Factor mutant — it looks like there’s a new competitor for Christmas number one.
The Muppets’ cover of “Bohemian Rhapsody” is to be released as an iTunes single next week.
And while friends of mine — Keith, I’m looking at you :-p — said that the Muppets’ “Bohemian Rhapsody” is the reason the Internet was invented, I really think that honor belongs to 2001: A Who Odyssey, which is beyond awesome.
That said, I do find the Muppets’ rendition of the Queen song to be enjoyable fun. Honestly, it’s probably the first time I’ve actually liked the song.
Yeah, not a Queen fan. *shrug*
I don’t know that I, on this side of the pond, can derail Simon Cowell. I really have nothing against Simon Cowell or any of his shows, like American Idol. I just wonder why there aren’t any mutants shooting freakin’ laser beams from their eyes on X Factor, y’know? 😆
