Dylan Hears A Who
Several years ago, I stumbled upon Dylan Hears a Who! a web page that featured the stories of Dr. Seuss told in the style of Bob Dylan. These were amazingly done, so much so that people actually questioned whether or not some rare tapes of Dylan himself had been uncovered.
Unfortunately, the suits of Dr. Seuss' estate got wind of this and sent a cease and desist letter and the site was promptly "retired." An article describing what went down is available at Salon.com
However, through the power of the internet, the songs live on. Someone has created a myspace page with several of the songs.
MySpace: Dylan Hears a Who!
Someone else has even gone to the lengths of overlaying the track over the classic cartoons.
