Eeeeeeeeek..... Next, the sun will stand still in the sky, two headed calves will be born, the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse will be unleashed, and the whole fabric of the space time continuum will fold in upon itself along ten different dimensions, to become an intense dot of pulsing light.

Superb! Unreservedly recommended. A huge improvement on the somewhat overblown "other" version. Wonder if it's available to download on MP3?

I like the song the group put together, but I detest the term 'tribute band'.

It was a tradition on Australian comedy show The Money Or The Gun that musical guests finish each show with a cover version of Stairway to Heaven in their trademark style. There was even a sea shanty version, and this is how Rolf Harris came to cover it, and dozens more - but not Dolly Parton. See:

Wrong link. This is more informative:

This is, of course, a perfect example of Traditional Popular Culture, in which such reference points or so well established that the components become organic in & of themselves and musical creativity is a matter of interpretation and subsequent diversification. If Folk Music really is a matter of Folk Process and derivation, then you've got that in spades right here...

Here's that sea shanty folk-friendly version. It's even got a too-ral-aye chorus & a singing parrot...

Just when you thought it could get any worse... Actually, this one isn't played for laughs. Yup, you've guessed it - it's The Gregorian Chant version. There'll be a lot of people in the world for whom this passes as genuine spirituality:

Cheers, 999! I think it was that chap's eyes must have spooked my link...
