Fake Bob Dylan Sings Real Dr. Seuss

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! (below); 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!
