And, for what is probably the last Daily Shatner as a daily blog – I think a week of Shatners is quite enough, Shatner sings ‘My Way’ for George Lucas!

Shatner sings Sinatra:

Sinatra sings Sinatra:

Keep doing it your own, brilliant, way, Shatner!

Today Shatner takes another classic and does this to it…

Shatner sings Dylan:

For comparison, Dylan sings Dylan:

This song reminds me of the film ‘Dangerous Minds’ which I watched in 1998 before having disappointing sex with a very beautiful man. I enjoyed the film though!

Yesterday Lucy was in the sky, today Shatner is the sky!

Shatner sings Queen:

Queen sings Queen:

But what was that at the end? A little Spirit In The Sky?

Norman sings Norman:

This week is proving to be very, very strange… Shatner In The Sky With Freddie? Not yet, Shatner, not yet!

Day four of The Daily Shatner and we’re back in space, or somewhere…

Shatner sings The Beatles:

The Beatles sing The Beatles:

And, because of the interconnectedness of all things, Elton and a Beatle sing The Beatles:

Oh, you thought the original was psychedelic? Shatner’s trippin’ balls…

Day three of The Daily Shatner! I’m aiming for the full week now. That shouldn’t be a problem, Shatner has done much in his musical career and today I’ve chosen one of my favourites!

Shatner sings Pulp, to an excellently timed montage of Star Trek clips:

And the original, Pulp sings Pulp:

I love Pulp! Pulp and watching original Star Trek on a little portable telly were my 90’s.

Here are Pulp playing at Reading in 2002 – I’m there! Somewhere, there were a few other people there too…

For our second Daily Shatner we are sticking with the space theme, because he’s James T. Friggin’ Kirk, ok.

Shatner sings Elton:

Multiple Shatners! “A rocket, man.” “I’m a rock it man.” Go, Shatner!

And the original, Elton sings Elton:

I think I prefer Elton’s version, but Shatner’s interpretation has its merits too. Oddness is an admirable quality in these circumstances and Shatner’s performance has oddness by the bucketload.

New Thing… The Daily Shatner

I think I need a new thing to get me back into blogging, and so I introduce The Daily Shatner!! (May not appear daily.)

So, what is The Daily Shatner? Well, it will involve me finding YouTube videos, ‘cos I’m very good at that, of stuff William Shatner has done – like this:

Shatner sings Bowie!

For comparison, Bowie sings Bowie, a little oddly:

The more usual version:

And from real space!

The Daily Shatner, the best thing I’ve thunked up in the whole of today!
