Twelve years ago, a 30-something music producer from Houston, Texas got a big idea. Why not take his two favourite things - Bob Dylan and Dr. Seuss obvs and mash them up into one original creation. Hence came Dylan Hears a Who, a mock album that took several Dr. Seuss classics and put them to the melodies and imitated voice of Mr. Dylan. The cuts went viral, giving Dylan-Seuss fans worldwide the chance to enjoy creative takes on Green Eggs and Ham; The Cat in the Hat; Oh, The Thinks You Can Think!; Too Many Daves; and The Zax. Soon enough, the songs faded into YouTube oblivion, awaiting the day when a digital archaeologist would come along and do an excavation. Well, today’s the day. Enjoy!
To add even more fun to the proceedings, you need to suss out which classic Dylan songs are used for each Dr. Seuss classic? Initially i sussed two, not easy!
