This week is a cover of Baby Got Back by Sir Mix-a-Lot (note: he is not an actual knight). Had to activate the whole team for this one – guitar, mandolin, banjo and even some shakers and tambourines and other things lying around the house. I’ve wanted to cover this song for a long time, because it is excellent – there’s a wonderful message in there for those of you who have big butts. In the proud tradition of many white Americans who came before me I hereby steal and white-ify this thick and juicy piece of black culture. Watch for my album “Jonathan Coulton Sings Songs by Black People.”
Here is the song: Baby Got Back
Oh, and don’t forget to vote for your favorite Shop Vac solo over there on the right. UPDATE: New plan! New plan! I forgot I said you could submit through this weekend. So we’ll stop the voting and continue on Monday once I have all the entries.
