Great Balls

Funk Turkey is a pseudonym and stage name of Arkansas parody/comedy musician and producer Kirt Connor who wrote a bot.

By sucking up all of the lyrics from actual AC/DC songs and using a Markov Chain to semi-randomly generate a “new” song based on the band’s existing lyrics.

And then he recorded it.

Burning Down the House

There hasn’t been enough Tom Jones on this blog this year so let’s go back to 1999 when he recorded a version of Talking Heads’ Burning Down the House with Swedish rock band The Cardigans.

The song was recorded for Jones’ album of collaborations, Reload and, in common with the other tracks on the album, the recording was made with the collaborators’ choice of producer and studios. Tn this case Tore Johansson and Tambourine Studios in Malmö, Sweden.

The track was released as the lead single from the album and was a huge hit across Europe and beyond.
