Comments:  you are a sick, sick, man. i had to bite my lip from laughing too loudly as i read this. now i have to go home and read along whilst i listen. couldn't you use Flash and do the whole "follow the bouncing ball" thing with the "lyrics"?


actually Flash annoys me somewhat, but it would be interesting to see how well it would work...

Comments:  If you want to compare and contrast Shooby's version of SHM with the original... becomes even more humorous!

Comments:  Heh, that's funny. Flash?! I don't know, man, I guess I could, but I'm no Flash wizard. Someone should do it, though! I want to make a video for "Believe In God Until You Die" someday, in Flash. Just imagine the visuals, including a shot of the Ralph Lowe glissando. I wonder if he pronounces his name like Ralph Fiennes does?

Comments:  HA! I love it... What did this take, like, two months of "slow time" or what!? :)

Comments:  Glad you like it! It took about two months to decide to do it, but the actual transcription took about 4 hours or so. I did a lot of slowing-down of Shooby, though...half-speed, sometimes even quarter-speed to get all those syllables! The man sure could scat (RIP).

Comments:  Oh man! A friend gave me a disc with Shooby's inimitable version and I wept I was laughing so hard. On a whim yesterday, I googled Shooby, and found your transcription. I didn't think it was possible to enjoy that song more, but playing it, and following along... There aren't sufficient words to describe the experience! Wow.

Comments:  Hey, terrific! If anything I've done can help someone enjoy Shooby even more, that makes me happy. I was listening to Shooby's version of "Over the Rainbow" today (the one with Erroll Garner, not the usual MP3) and thinking about doing another transcription -- it may be Shooby's most beautiful moment, and I mean that literally!
