For the past year or so I’ve been a fan of Mike Flowers Pops, a musician who does loungey send-ups of such musical groups as The Doors or Oasis. Whereas Weird Al redos the song with different words, Mike Flowers does that actual song but changes it to a lounge sound.
Then my sister emails me the other day and tells me she saw his competition: a man named Richard Cheese. Now, Mr. Cheese does more recent covers, including a hilarious cover of “Baby Got Back” by the inimitable Sir Mix-a-Lot.
I’m torn as to who will be my favorite.
