“Boys Don’t Cry” – The Cure cover (Bob Dylan in a coffee shop style) – Puddles Pity Party

Many P³ers have asked me to try a song by The Cure. “Boys Don’t Cry” just jumped in my lap. I tried a little Bob Dylan style with harmonica. I’m not very good at harmonica playing but I like to try. It ended up sounding a little like Bonnie Prince Billy. Don’t ya think? Please subscribe to my YouTube station.

Folsom Prison Blues mashed with Pinball Wizard!

Back in 1994 or so, I saw Gregory Dean Smalley perform this mashup at the Star Community Bar. I was floored. Greg was a force of supernatural proportions and he is missed. Many people have done it prior to me doing it. I guess it was always meant to be.
