Dylan Hears a Who

Dylan sings Dr. Seuss (you used to be able to listen to it here).

Be sure to be on the lookout for more collaborations between picture books and musicians. AOL Time Warner has already started bringing artists into the studio to record songs for a 5 CD Set: Picture This! Rockin' the Library. It will be released in January of next year and available for $29.99 if you call in and order immediately. The collection will feature such greats as:

Led Zeppelin: Where the Wild Things Are
Pink Floyd: Goodnight Moon
Boyz2Men: Guess How Much I Love You
Radiohead: Where the Sidewalk Ends
Salt N Pepa: In the Night Kitchen
Enya: The Giving Tree

Question: What else would you like to see in this collection? Let me know, and I'll be sure to pass your suggestions on to Ted Turner next time I see him.

I think Melissa Ethridge could challenge Bob Dylan with a rendition of "The Lorax", which is next year's Academy Awards Nominee for Best Original Song in "An Inconvenienter Truth"

My other suggestions:
* Gnarls Barkley: Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day
* Norah Jones & Danny Elfman: The Polar Express
* Jay-Z: Tikki Tikki Tembo

Wow, thats interesting. I listened to the Dylan-Suess songs.

I noticed that the plot of "The Cat in the Hat" is remarkably similar to "Lilly, Rosemary and the Jack of Hearts".

and don't even get me started on the similarities between "Rainy Day Women #12 & 35" and "There's a Wocket in My Pocket!"
