In my ongoing attempt to entertain you by unearthing the worst cover songs of all time, I offer you this particularly putrid gem: Pat Paulsen adding an extra dollop of poop to the already pretty execrable “Hey Jude.”
This is actually quite funny in a smart funny type of way. Paulsen is skewering the whole hippie dippy thing, youth culture in general, and the cornball sentiment of a song that has all the lyrical depth of a Hallmark greeting card. So, in fact, this may actually be a brilliant cover version of “Hey Jude” in that it shines a light on the mindnumbing banality of the tune. Whatever the case, the Indian gets the last laugh.
