And Now, the Vocal Stylings of William Shatner

File Under: So Bad it's Good.

Neatorama had a link to this fantasically aweful animated video to William Shatner's version of Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds. Like a carwreck, you don't wanna watch, yet you can't peel your eyes away...

How about Bill covering Harry Chapin's "Taxi"?

And who else, but the original interstellar playboy, can tell us "How to Handle a Woman"?

The Shat, with a chorus line of stormtroopers seranade George Lucas.

Of course, Shatner is a classic. Here is a true classic, as he raps some Shakespeare from Julius Caesar.

Now, this one is actually pretty good. Shat, Joe Jackson, and Ben Folds cover Pulp's scathing indictment of boho slumming "Common People."

Last, and perhaps not least, what collection of Shatner's musical genius would be complete with a version of his interpretation of "Rocketman"?
