Can I outlast Everlast?
« on: October 31, 2008, 07:35:42 AM »

All right, so today is my day to try and live through 8 hours of "Folsom Prison Blues" by Everlast.

I will try and post at the top and bottom of the hour as my mental state and job permit.
I have a bag full of Halloween candy, a donut, and advil so I should set for the day. :-)

Starting play #1 now.

This is going to hurt.

Three plays in and I already want to shoot Everlast.

Gonna be a long, long day. The only saving grace is that there is no Johnny Cash sample in the version I downloaded. There are plenty of unnecessary sampled sounds though. And some really awful keyboard work. Seriously, I could do better on a 10 dollar casio.

*sigh* 7 plays in.

The. Most. Ridiculous. Song. Ever.

The scary thing is that Everlast "singing" isn't the worst part of the song. The keyboard break after the verse is downright awful and the "Jump Around" squeal will probably leave me crying under my desk by 4pm.

If it gets to be too much, you could always pack it up, pack it in.

Did you wear a rhinestone shirt to work today? I can bring you one of Elise's ponies, you can ride it around the office screaming "whee!" at the top of your lungs. I'm sure that'll confirm your sanity (or lack thereof).

Let me begin, I came to win.

Damn you, foolsgold.

At this point I think I'd shoot Everlast just to watch him die.

No, no... I think I'll be curled into a little ball trembling by the end of the day. OR I'll be chasing the geese that congregate outside my building.

Do you remember the scene in Alien where the thing comes busting out of that guy's chest?

I think my brain is preparing to do the same thing.

Maybe it will even do a dance routine like in Spaceballs...

I've decided this song is missing something.

It desperately needs an actual train whistle. Woo-woo!

Powerful and inspired?

Improbable as it may sound, it turns out that Johnny and hip-hop go damned well together. That’s hardly surprising–the man did pull off completely convincing covers of tunes by Danzig, Soundgarden and NIN before he died. Now Everlast’s cover of Johnny is powerful and inspired, bringing new life to the country anthem with a full-bodied production that verges on overkill but, ultimately, walks the line between tact and bombast with stirring restraint (BTW: we proudly accept the “Worst Pun of the Year” award–we’d like to thank the academy, our mothers, and every bad joke ever told.)

I'm flabbergasted that someone somewhere thought this version of the song was a good idea. I agree that Everlast isn't the worst part of this. It's the Jump Around squeal. It smacks of, "Hey, I bet y'all don't remember me. I'm gonna add that squeal so people will think it sounds like Jump Around and eventually put two and two together." It's bad enough to hear it a hundred times during the course of one three minute song - I'd kill myself if I had to hear that squeal all day long.

God forbid I ever have to walk a mile in your shoes....


'Cause then I'd really know what it's like to hear Everlast sing Folsom Prison Blues
