Wolverine: The Musical

If there’s a greater joy than musicals about borderline psychotic canadian mutants then it’s an Australian voiced puppet supported by an incredibly well selected batch of Marvel miscreants singing a medley of altered musical classics.

This video gives it all, as well as the best use for Multiple Man since X-Factor 92 where he multiplied himself inside and exploded a member of the Acolytes.

Personal favourite moment: A silent Wolverine just wandering over a host of singing Multiple Men and revenge at Spider-man.

Anyone who knows us or attended Moon Launch 2 knows that we love a show with a puppet in it. Moon Launch featured Laura Bacon in duet with a human with her hand up a puppets butt!! Now that’s showbiz and this has been our favourite interpretation of the ol’ canuckle head.

Moon’s Song of the Week: Down The Road by C2C

I promised last week that I’d dig out that C2C track that’s been blowing me away and I’ve managed to find it. C2C are part of  the great tradition of French electro but they take it one step further than most.

In this track (with Richie Jackson) they combine hobo blues with electro to produce something that sounds like Daft Punk meets Seasick Steve. It helps that the video’s suitably weird as well!

Moon’s Song of the Week: Mitt Romney’s Concession Song by The Gregory Brothers

I very rarely post comedy songs in this slot but this was so well done that I thought I’d make an exception (that and I can’t remember the name of the C2c song that I wanted to post so that will have to wait til next week).

The Gregory Brothers are the creators of many a fine video in which they brighten up regular news with ridiculous songs. This time they’re having a crack at explaining why Mitt Romney is just fine with losing this week’s election.

Moon’s Song of the Week: Here I Am by Adam Green and Binki Shapiro

I’m a big Adam Green fan (Gemstones is one of the few albums that I genuinely listen to end to end on a regular basis) so when I hear that he has a new song out then it’s a no brainer to throw it up on the site.

Here I Am is a chilled out, quirky duet with Binki Shapiro, who has a voice every bit as wonderful as his name. It’s from the upcoming, self titled album and it’s well worth starting your weekend off with.

Moon’s Song Of The Week – Superhero Music by Fingathing

 

I’ve had a week off from the site in order to get a few bits done (one of those being my 30th) but we’re back this weekend for more music and science. This week’s track is a jump into the archives for a song by Fingathing which is somewhat appropriate for this site. Drum Bowskill (who you’ll remember from the Mad Tree short we did a few weeks ago) gave me a USB full of music as a birthday present so don’t be surprised if I delve into it on more than one occasion over the next few weeks.

How this song has not made it onto the soundtrack of a movie, I will never know.

Moon’s Song of the Week – Hurricane by Automation

It’s always nice when we get to talk about new music on here. This track by London Metal/D&B three piece “Automation” has less than 30 plays on youtube right now and it deserves a whole tonne more. I stumbled upon Automation’s page while looking at the bill for upcoming nights at Proud Camden (because I have a bit too much time on my hands right now) and I’m very glad I did.

Their music mixes metal, drum & bass and a bit of dubstep to produce a sound that is as brutal as it is fun. Fans of Pendulum or the Prodigy will find much to like here, also the fact that they mention their music degrees in their official bio is quite endearing.

You can check out more of their music here.

Moon’s Song of the Week – Happy Pills (Max Tannone Remix) by Norah Jones

 

There’s never a bad time to break out a Max Tannone track. This is a one off remix that he did for Norah Jones a little while back. As always Max’s seemingly limitless knowledge of dub reggae has allowed him to take a well known song and put a totally new slant on it. Effortlessly cool.

Enjoy!

Moon’s Song of the Week – Do It Anyway by Ben Folds Five

A good Ben Folds video is always worth a watch and this one is even more so as it features The Fraggles. Whilst they may inhabit a lonely third place in the list of “most famous Jim Henson shows” for people of a certain age the Fraggles are pretty much canned happiness. When I was two, I insisted my parents buy me a Red Fraggle to give to my newborn baby brother. The result was all the other babies in the ward crying because they couldn’t handle the Fraggleness.

The song’s a stonking bit of American indy-pop too. Just make sure you watch to the very end for a lovely little extra bit.

Moon’s Song of the Week: Gangnam Style by PSY

;

;

This track is pretty much a global mega-hit by now but the UK has been unusually slow to catch on so I thought I’d throw it up. It has over 200 million views on youtube and it’s only been out a month or so. How is that possible? Because it’s Korean of course.

South Korean rapper, PSY has been turning out insane yet wonderful tracks for over ten years and Gangnam Style currently holds the record for the most viewed K-Pop track on youtube. Who knew.

Oh and while you’re here, check out the Gandalf version by Screen Team.

Moon’s Song of the Week: The Fight by Krispy Kreme

 

My buddy Josh (who you’ll remember from all of our more recent films) has been trying to get me to check out Krispy Kreme for weeks now. I finally got around to it and am now set to loose a lot of time catching up on his hilarious back catalogue. Krispy Kreme is a rapper and youtube star who produces low budget videos on a regular basis. They are very funny and surprisingly well written, plus how can you not love a guy who dresses like John Cena just because he wants to.
