I had posted this on my FB last august, and I thought I got it from Metafilter but I couldn't find a reference to it before this FPP. It must have came from twitter and I must have made the conscious decision to post it on FB and not on Metafilter because I wanted to spare you all from the laughing to death.

I feel this is how the cheesy 70s song Convoy was created. I mean the chorus part that is sung is so jarring when compared to the spoken word and music.

Convoy, written by Chip Davis, who went on to be the musician behind Mannheim Steamroller, (Fresh Aire, too many Christmas albums to count)...

I always feel compelled to let anyone who has not yet heard the good news know that there was a sequel 45.

I tend to be a mashup skeptic, but this is brilliant.

I had a former apartment neighbor who kept irregular hours and used Thousand Miles as a her "morning" alarm. To this day I harbor a legit Rage Against Venessa Carlton.

(Seriously, can anyone explain the lyrics of that song to me or are they just nonsense that's been rattling around the back of my brain for twenty years?)

Well, you see, when he wakes up gets drunk, havers, workin' hard, comes home or grow old, he's gonna be the man who's doing so for you. And he would walk 500 miles ...
