Colonel Roger (is a Soldier from the Future (is a Cover))

June 30, 2008 9:15 PM

I know this song has been uploaded right at the very end (if not shortly beyond) of the MeFi Music Challenge, but I went through a number of songs in the long debate to find a MeFite's song to cover, eventually landing on the one that most frequently gets stuck in my head. That song is Colonel Roger (is a Soldier from the Future) by chiefbluefeather.

Although for quite some time I toyed with a cover of the wonderful snsranch's It's Summer (Go Outside and Play!). I still think I'll cover that, sometime.

Drat! 15 minutes late. Oh, well. I tried.

Also, just after uploading the song, my internet connection went down. I stepped outside for a cigarette, ended up in a discussion with my neighbor across the street, and headed over there for a little while. Both his cable and internet services were also not working. Therefore, I concluded that this song had broken the internet.

That's what I like to think, anyway.

Now THIS is the way to break the internet! Goddamn robots! I'm glad you covered this one, I loved the original and now I get to love it twice in two different ways!

I've been sending the link to "Colonel Roger" (original) all over the place. It absolutely was on my short list of cover-worthy tunes. Think I'll go bomb some more people out with it.

I'm glad you did this one -- I missed the original, and this is a great little tune. Your voice is perfect for it, too.
