William Shatner CD Promises To Get Us Closer To Shat-Vana

William Shatner has a new CD. I own his previous musical onslaughts, The Transformed Man and Has Been.

Has Been is one you need to own. It's Shatner in the modern era, at the peak of his self-awareness. I daresay you will enjoy it. It's right here

Check out this video for his cover of Pulp's " Common People."

But you might say, I bet Shatner singing stinks. To you, I say chill out. He's not what you would call a trained singer, or a fully capable one. It's the gusto with which he approaches the task. You will approach it with the intent of making fun, but you will come away with a renewed Shatnition.

These messages from Shatner's mouth to our brains will get us closer to Shatneity.

The track listing is right here.

Many of the 18 songs are favorites of the rock and / or roll, listenable without Shatneric intervention. They include "Space Trucking" by Deep Purple, "She Blinded Me With Science" by Thomas Dolby, "Space Oddity," by David Bowie, "Bohemian Rhapsody" by Queen, and Shatner's infamous "Rocket Man." I believe that's never been available on a record before.

The addition of Shatner to the metallic fury of these tracks may be too much to handle. Go with Shat-speed, my friends.
