In a recent post at Red State Witch, the Co-Host Blogmaster, multi-talented musician, and master of dark (actually, rainbow coloured...with sparkly thingies) sorceries Wiccapundit posted a video showcasing the talents of a young but gifted girl strutting her stuff on an electronic synthesizer. In my brief (but magnificently eloquent) reply post, I pointed out that his slavish, and yes, arguably cultish devotion to the once-great quasi-rock band of old, Rush, may have blinded him to what appears to have been a heavy musical influence on said band by other more potent forces, perhaps of nefarioius supernatural origin...the magic of 70's voodoo child Chuck Mangione.
I offer here a counter of that post...first a synthesized rendition, then the original itself, followed with a surprise treat at the end.

Being shamelessly stuck in that cool 70's groove for a moment, it occured to me to share the most bizarre of sights: a Bee Gees cover by...wait for it...the Red Hot Chili Peppers! Well, a modest solo interpretation by RHCP guitarist John Frusciante, anyway. And c'mon...look at the guy. Tell me he couldn't pass for a Gibb brother with just a little bit of soap and a lot of hairspray. Makes me miss polyester (not really).
