Overview

When Pigs Fly: Songs You Never Thought You'd Hear is the kind of record that probably plays better in concept than it does in theory. In effect, it's a manufactured Golden Throats -- the producers recruited a bunch of artists that would sound weird singing a particular song, whether it's Ani Di Franco and Jackie Chan duetting on Nat "King" Cole's "Unforgettable" or Lesley Gore's "Dirty Deeds Done Dirty Cheap." It's all professionally produced and knowingly performed, which is kind of the problem -- the charm of Golden Throats is that it was done with no regard of taste, decorum, or hipness, making each recording genuinely fascinating. This, in contrast, is a one-off comedy record that will be funny if you find the idea of the pairings funny -- Oak Ridge Boys doing "Carry On Wayward Son," Herman's Hermits' "White Wedding" -- you'll find this funny once, but you probably won't put it on again, unless you're playing it for friends.
