Pinball Wizard/Folsom Prison Blues Schmoosh Up – Switcharoo

You wanted this Switcharoo, you got it! The Who and Elton John and Johnny Cash. 3 great tastes that taste great together. I even threw in a bit of Crescent City Blues as a little lagniappe. That’s the song Folsom Prison Blues was derived from. It was written by Gordon Jenkins and sung by Beverly Mahr before J. Cash picked it up and made it his very own. Can you name the other influences on this?

    Puddles why didn’t you try something like this on AGT with projection or something? WOW what a whole different side to Puddles. That was a really fun video!

  7. You’re really really good Puddles! My sister found you on YouTube after my daughter found out you didn’t make it after the first night of voting on AGT. She’s 18 and loves your performances!

    I love this! I’ve seen your picture with Emily Jillette, and since I don’t watch much TV, I didn’t know exactly what you did… but love this.

    “Can you name other influences?”
    When you first posted this, I was gonna say Ronnie James Dio in the way you say stuff like “hang my head and cry-yi”. Now you’ve posted Rainbow in the Dark and I know for sure, haha!

    The title sounded crazy, but you make it work, and work beautifully.

    After listening to this, I wondered about the reverse mash-up – the lyrics to “Folsom Prison Blues,” sung to the tune of “Pinball Wizard.”

    I see this and somehow I see Dave Grohl wanting you onstage for at least one Foo song. Lots of fun watching Puddles’ work.
