Here Comes Your Man (preschool version)

March 31, 2009 9:31 PM

OK, so the mods said on the podcast they liked MeFiMusic posts with kid participation. Emboldened by this I am posting a cover of the Pixies' "Here Comes Your Man," vocals and drums by my son, age 3, cheap keyboard by me attempting to follow his innovative tempo changes. Only listen to this if you really like "Here Comes Your Man," or listening to preschoolers getting their shriek on. Actually, you might also like this if you like preschoolers and hate "Here Comes Your Man" so much that you want to hear violence done to it.

That was funny, and strangely captivating (and I'm a big Pixies fan). Did you teach him the lyrics, or had he already picked them up from hearing the song a lot?

It's the inverse of SongSmith. I love it.

You should send this to the Pixies.

p3t3, for a few months he liked to have me and his mom sing it to him right before bed, so he learned it pretty well.

I think it is wonderful.

the more i like something, the more i want to see violence done to it.
though this means i should never have children, i'm the ideal audience for this new form of music you've just invented.
