This was the first Jonathan Coulton song I ever heard, way back in late 2005. I'm not a particularly big fan of Sir Mix-a-Lot (although: Seattle natives represent!) but I loved this mellow, gentle cover of a Mix-a-Lot classic. I think Jonathan Coulton hits the perfect sweet spot for me -- a combination of geekery (he has songs from video games, as well as songs about coding, vampires, the first dog sent into space, and a myriad of other pop culture highlights) and the most amazing mellow sound, reminiscent of the '70s soft rock artists I grew up listening to.

Whether you want a song about zombies, octopi, a creepy doll, several different flavors of evil genius, moustaches, Shop-Vacs, a kick-butt princess, fractals, fancy pants, or a love affair between Leonard Nimoy and bigfoot, Jonathan Coulton has you covered, and covered well.

After what could have been a really crappy experience, JoCo decided to re-release his cover as a cover in the style of Glee and to donate the proceeds to two excellent charities. Love it.

I am a long time fan of the quirky and lovable Jonathan Coulton and his very creative, and often funny, song styling. This song is a great example of how he can put his own twist on to something and turn it in to much more than it was to begin with. It truly does take a lot of talent to completely transform a song in to your own unique style.

If this is the first taste of JoCo's music you've heard, please do look in to the rest. His songs are so fun, catchy and refreshing. I promise, you will not be disappointed!

For anyone who doesn't know, the controversy here is not that Glee covered the same song as Jonathon Coulton, it's that they actually used his original and brand new musical arrangement of the song, copied his changed lyrics (which make no sense in the context of the Glee performance), and based on spectrum analysis even stole the EXACT instrumental backing of his song.

In a better world, Fox would apologize for ripping off yet another independent artist (which they have done with some frequency dating back to the "Don't Stop Believing" cover in the Pilot). In the real world, Jonathon Coulton has shown that he can take the classier route by re-releasing his song and donating all profits (after the Amazon cut and royalties paid to Mixalot) to two great charities, VH1 Save the Music Foundation and the It Gets Better Project.

I like covered covers and I cannot lie.
You other covers can't deny
that when a song comes on with a real familiar tone
and a chorus in your face,
you get hung, up on the covered song
'cause you noticed that song was on.
Deep in the tune I'm hearing
there's an old song quite endearing.
Oh JC, I wanna pay you money
and buy every single CD
My senses tried to warn me
But that song was just stolen for TV.
Ooh, Ander's smooth crew
We just want credit where credit's due.
"They used me, on Glee."
JC's got no average groupie.
They're out there chanting,
Generally frantic,
They're mad, sad,
Saying Fox did something bad.
I'm tired of magazines,
Sayin' they don't get this thing
Take an average person and ask them that,
"Who is this JC cat?"
So, Fellas! Yeah! Fellas Yeah!
Has this cover been covered? Hell yeah!
Tell them to stick it, stick it!
Up their wealthy butt.
Lea's got back.
I really like that...

This is the best cover of a cover of a cover EVER! If you liked Sir Mix a-Lot's song, and if you liked JoCo's original cover, you will LOVE this cover of Glee's cover of Joco's cover. I highly recommend downloading this single!

Despite claims from Glee execs that their cover of his cover granted him exposure, JoCo had to fight to make their "inspiration" clear. Hopefully his efforts will get him the credit he deserves! Inventive version, very catchy.

I am so happy to have been introduced to Jonathan Coulton as a result of this controversy. I love interesting covers like this one! In addition to this great tune for my collection, I am happy to support this particular track. One of my least favorite things is when artists get the shaft and one of my most favorite things is when artists create opportunity for expression and goodness for others with that same shaft. Go Jonathan!
