Marty Feldman Covers Tom Lehrer

If you don’t recognize the two names in the title of this post then this obviously will not have the brain-melting effect on you that it had on me and you’ll probably be bored by it. Personally, I was floored. I’m not sure why I was so blown away by this…I guess it never occurred to me that Marty Feldman could cover a Tom Lehrer song. In any case, I’m just glad it exists and I feel it’s my duty to bring stuff like this to the Nerdist community.

    That was fantastic. Great version of the Vatican Rag.

  2. I like the original version more. Also the Elements is a Better Song.

    This is the greatest thing in the history of ever!

    (I shall now take this opportunity to tell a story about me: When I was in second grade I got in trouble for singing The Masochism Tango to myself in class. It took me years to figure out what I’d done wrong.)

    Hmmmm.. Those habits look awfully Anglican to me…

    I was watching Young Frankenstein today, recognizing that nobody can pull off the physical comedy like Feldman, Ritter and Conway did.

    It was always subtle and respectful of the artform, whereas Jim Carey always takes it overboard. Love Jim, just different.

    Holy crap it’s Igor from Young Frankenstein!
    …and men in nun costumes.
    ….and a midget in a priest (?) outift.

    Seems pretty normal to me.

    Oh, thank you for this. It’s quite possibly the neatest thing I’ve seen today. :-)
