Video of the Week: Dr. Seuss Raps over Dr. Dre Beats

Filmmaker Wes Tank’s must-see mashup of Dr. Dre and Dr. Seuss.

Fake Bob Dylan Sings Real Dr. Seuss

(Reprinted from Open Culture)

Five years ago, a 30-something music producer from Houston, Texas got a big idea. Why not take his two favorite things — Bob Dylan and Dr. Seuss, of course — and mash them up into one original creation. Hence came Dylan Hears a Who, a mock album that took seven Dr. Seuss classics and put them to the melodies and imitated voice of Mr. Dylan. The cuts went viral, giving Dylan-Seuss fans worldwide the chance to enjoy creative takes on Green Eggs and Ham (above); The Cat in the Hat; Oh, The Thinks You Can Think!; Too Many Daves; and The Zax. Soon enough, the songs faded into YouTube oblivion, awaiting the day when a digital archaeologist would come along and do an excavation. Well, today’s the day. Enjoy!
