Shatner & Cocker: Together at last!

Writing about web page http://homepage.mac.com/sceldred/.Public/Steve/common_people.mov

William Shatner has covered Pulp's Common People*. The result is just awesome. For a 73 year old he's retained an admirable sense of irony and the ridiculous, and later in the song, he also demonstrates an impressive set of lungs. I hope I'm that cool in my seventies.

  1. How cool is that? or … how weird is that? Funny, at any rate :-) Just shows you that Shatner can go from starship captain to L.A. cop to pop singer – wow, just as talented as David Hasselhoff. heh heh heh

    !!!!!

    Just had that blaring out from my speakers (as I'm working at home!)...there's something just…kind of…..well…..erm…..creepy?...about it. I'm not sure that's him singing towards the end either, the accent suddenly gets quite English????

    I thought that too! (that it's a bit creepy and it's surely not Captain Kirk singing and that he's just as talented as David Hasselhoff. Which isn't very).
