    when pigs fly cd

    There were a couple of interesting versions on the pigs fly cd besides the fixx including:

    dirty deeds - by leslie gore

    white wedding- by herman's hermits

    unforgettable- by jackie chan and ani difranco

    But my favorite might be Don Ho doing "shock the monkey"

    there's sound clips to sample all of them. Cy sounds so dark and mysterious.

    Is this only available on the net (at that site mentioned above?), or has anybody had time to search for it the old way in a cd store????

    "These Boots Are Made For Walkin'"

    Anybody pick up the "When Pigs Fly: Songs You Never Thought You'd Hear" CD yet? There's a HMV store closing in NYC, and they're having a 40% off sale, so I picked up the CD this weekend. It's hilarious! The Fixx serve up a delightfully moody version of "These Boots Are Made For Walkin'"(although it's about 1 minute too long). Don Ho does "Shock The Monkey," Devo cover Neil Young's "Ohio," The Connells do "Insane In The Brain" and Billy Preston covers "Girls On Film." It's worth checking out, at least for the Fixx track.

    Yeah, I picked one up from the website that originally sold them (I forget the URL). I'm liking the performance, crisp and sassy. I guess it is kind of long but I like it that way.

    Nice find!
    Cheers

    Question for those of you who HAVE These Boots Were Made For Walkin'.

    What exactly is Cy saying at the 4:59 - 5:02 mark?

    Sounds like he says "...that's just phoughkin great"

    Correct me if I'm wrong

    Just listened to that clip and was thinking "Cy sounds like he means it". . . Hmmm, interesting! Kinda kewl! But I've been a fan of Jackie Chan for years, , , he sang a lot of his soundtracks to his films, so I'm not surprised to hear him singing!

    These Boots Are Made for Walkin'

    I'm new to the board but I just picked up a CD compilation called 'When Pigs Fly' with The Fixx doing a version of 'These Boots Are Made For Walkin'. Sounds great!! No info. though on when it was recorded. Possibly 2002 since that's when the compilation was released.

    I thought the Fixx version and the entire cd was a yawn. I expected more from the Fixx. I guess I am not a fan of their more moodier stuff. I expected a more uptempo version. The other songs on the cd are the types of songs you listen to once. Does anyone really care about Don Ho, Roy Clark, The Oak Ridge Boys, or Herman's Hermits??? So what Jackie Chan sings a duet with somebody that I never heard of. I got the cd off ebay but the bidding price is usually more than it is worth. None of the version's by any of the artists are any of their best works.

    Thumbs down Disappointment

    I agree w/ Crucified. The album really disappointed me. Of the entire The Fixx catalog, it's probably the song (cover) I like least.
