A September of Demento- Today’s song is “The Ballad of Bilbo Baggins” by Leonard Nimoy- aka Spock from Star Trek. I have always thought it curious that both Nimoy and Bill Shatner in the wake of their Star Trek fame recorded albums- Shatner always seemed to be doing his Rolling Stones to Nimoy’s Beatles [in having to follow what Nimoy did- like the Stones did The Beatles– Nimoy records and album Shatner has to, Nimoy directs a movie- Shatner then does etc.}
Watching the video and listening to Nimoy sing the song is a surreal experience. My brain has trouble wrapping around it.
Leonard Nimoy – okay
William Shatner – NOT!
j/k- do what you want -haha
Don’t worry I won’t go there!
This is so bad! Why, Leonard, WHY?!
I can’t help but love this.
Incredible! I must share.
