Continuing the folderol, here is Bob Gibson not only singing a funny, offbeat (okay, weird) song by Shel Silverstein, but he sings it with Shel Silverstein. Well, less sings but mostly talks some commentary, although he does sing a bit of soft background harmony during the chorus.
(For those wondering why they aren't many recordings of Shel Silverstein singing his own songs, this recording will at least help explain. It's one of the few creative outlets that is not in his wheelhouse. His singing is somewhat akin to the sound you might expect a moose to make if it was strangling. That said, he does have some recordings, and he brings an effective authenticity to his songs, especially the most strange ones. Of which this definitely qualifies.)
Here is "Killed By a Cocoanut."
Hey, I told you it was weird. And therefore pure Shel Silverstein. But funny...
Robert J. Elisberg is a political commentator, screenwriter, novelist, tech writer and also some other things that I just tend to keep forgetting.
