When Canadians aren’t busy buying up all the milk at the Bellingham Costco, they are sitting at home listening to their favorite home town band Crash Test Dummies. Although Crash Test Dummies are not currently and never will be our favorite Canadian institution (that honor goes to Rush), their hit 1993 song Mmm Mmm Mmm Mmm is pretty remarkable. To this day it is still one of my all-time favorite songs (to sing at karaoke). According to Wikipedia, Mmm Mmm Mmm Mmm is frequently included on lists of bad songs. The song was number 15 on VH1’s 50 “Most Awesomely Bad Songs Ever”, named by Rolling Stone as the “15th Most Annoying Song”, and ranked at number 31 on Blender’s list of the “50 Worst Songs Ever”. Any song with that kind of resume must be good. Right?
Over the weekend WE spent some time in the studio to pay tribute to one of the best things to ever come out of Canada. Here is our version of Crash Test Dummies hit song Mmm Mmm Mmm Mmm (you got to love a song title that contains four words and only one letter). Check it out. Look how low my voice goes.
