Chevy Chase Recorded a Album 30 Years Ago
We all know Chevy Chase as Clark Griswold, Fletch, and most recently Pierce Hawthorne in “Community”. Did you know he put out a music album 30 years ago?
As I ran across this album this morning, I find myself speechless. This album was supposed to be a comedy album however it is just plain weird. Weird!
Chevy covers The Beatles, “Let It Be” in a weird chipmunk voice. He does the strangest cover of “Wild Thing”, and Bob Marley’s “I Shot the Sheriff.” Then he did his own version of the Sugar Hill Gang’s “Rapper’s Delight.” Don’t even get me started on Tennessee Ernie Ford’s “Sixteen Tons”.
Words cannot describe this weirdness. You can listen to the album being streamed now at Archive.org.
