Subject: Shatner version of Blowin' In The Wind
From: Little Hawk
Date: 28 Feb 02 - 12:49 PM

This is my attempt to create an even more boring thread subject than Greg's. So whaddya think? If no one posts to it I will have succeeded. I fear, though, that someone may, simply because William Shatner's lyrical (and musical) revisions of popular songs are so compelling and original that they are hard to ignore...

Well, we'll see.

You know, I don't think that GUESTS (though their kindly and generally helpful nature is indisputable) really qualify in determining how boring this thread subject is. The reason is, most GUESTS are not well enough informed on the general setup at Mudcat, and could easily be misled in some way regarding the whole intent of this exercise.

So...only if regular Mudcat members totally ignore this thread will it have proven to be more boring than Greg's. Okay? As far as I am concerned this thread is still the most boring one out there, and I have yet to be convinced otherwise.

It IS immortal, and clearly more moving than that boring nasal Dylan rendition; that said, it is still eclipsed by Shatner's "Mr. Tambourine Man", in which, as I believe it was stated in the liner notes for "Golden Throats", he screams the chorus with a "maniacal fury"....what a talent. A true Renaissance Man; is there anything he CAN'T do?!

Not bad. It's been an hour, and only 2 GUESTS. Dear GUEST #2...Yes! Bill Shatner did record an album, so I guess you could say he has "sung professionally"...sort of. His versions of "Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds" and "Mr. Tambourine Man" have to be heard to be believed. Trust me.

Greg, I am closing in on the prize...

Shatner's version is outstanding! As is everthing the MAN puts his hand to do! Unfortuntely, Little Hawk, I do not have the lyrics.

Have you caught his rendition of "Both Sides Now"? It sends chills to my spine...so hauntingly beautiful!

One other thing, Little Hawk,...How do you expect no one to respond to a thread that mentions the Great Shatner in the thread name? This does not compute!

Des is correct; "what a talent. A true Renaissance Man; is there anything he CAN'T do?!"

PS: i'm right.I've just had a look. My "Lyr Req:Blowing in the Wind" has sunk without trace.As has "HELP:how to do an E chord". Even the contender "Lyr req:WILD ROVER" (I think the capital letters were a mistake), which failed at first by generating some serious discussion, has now plummeted successfully . As of now you are up there as a serious LOSER.

Greg, I am crushed. I thought this thread would die miserably after a couple of idle GUEST comments. I'm not as boring as I thought I was (sigh). Oh well, at least I have succeeded in a little subversive Shatnerizing, boldly spreading the legend of the Great Man where none have had the bad judgement to spread it before.

I agree that Nimoy's rendition of "If I Had A Hammer" is...impressive. But does it "rock"? Shatner ROCKS! He's even brought back a few rocks from strange new worlds, and he's got his rocks off on them too in more than a few episodes! What a talent! To say he can't act is not quite fair...he can...BADLY.

This business of coming up with the most boring thread on Mudcat is not that easy. I'm frankly surprised that "Wild Rover" didn't win it, hands down.

I heard something on the news a couple of days ago about Shatner's 40-year-old daughter setting up a web site for him. Her age might have been a little older; I wonder why that was even included? Anyway, has anyone seen this new source of Shatner material? Desdemona?

Hey, Mario, when you've got it all, a little arrogance is forgivable, and Big Bill has got it all...sex appeal, virility, a unique speech pattern, an acting style no one else has succeeded in emulating, and singing ability that simply goes so far beyond the ordinary that the results are...ineffable.

I have now accepted the fact that this thread has failed utterly in the "most boring thread" competition, and am going to use it to shamelessly plug William Shatner instead.

Thanks to all who have contributed, and a big raspberry to Spaw for not doing so...

Someone called PZBrown seems to have thought it up. It's great to see, Des, that you have not given up on your dreams. Maybe we could pool the talent at Mudcat, and come up with some really great songs that would allow Mr. Shatner to reach the full range of his singing and acting ability. This could end up being bigger than Star Wars and Lord of the Rings put together if it's done right!
