Along with introducing The Captain and The Nipper to the Clash and Joy Division, it’s important to me that they both have a healthy dose of folk music and protest songs. So this past couple of weeks have been Bob Dylan, Pete Seeger, Peter Paul and Mary, and yes, even some Joan Baez. So we were watching some videos tonight before bed (“If I Had a Hammer” has been one of the nightly songs for the last two weeks), and we watched the following version of that same song. As the video began, The Nipper, who usually only has eyes full of watching, points his still-chubby pointy-finger at the screen and says: “Hey look! They’re singing in cheese!”
I just thought that was pretty awesome, and I figured you’d want to share the awesome. So here you have it: Peter, Paul, and Mary with “If I Had A Hammer” in a cheese:
And no, that does not mean the music is cheesy. It means they don’t make stage props like they used to.
