Songs in the key of Spider-Man

A couple or three years ago, a very good friend of mine found a dozen or so versions of the theme song to our favorite web-slinging hero and then burned them to a CD for me. Over the years, I have listened to the CD over and over again. Just recently I had cause to look the theme song on YouTube, and, well I simply couldn’t resist these, and neither will you.

Here is the original Spider-Man theme song, the way we heard it on TV when the cartoon originally debuted:

Here is the way The Ramones sang it:

Now re-interpreted by Weird Al Yankovic:

As sung by The Distillers:

Even Aerosmith took their own whack at the Spider-Man theme song:

The Karmacats (who?) give us a slammin’ version of Spidey’ Theme:

Michael Buble did a Jazz Remix to the theme song:

I know I posted this once before (albeit on another blog), but so long as I was posting versions of Spidey’s theme song, I figured that I’d have to include it again here (for the first time). Courtesy of the Simpsons:

This last one didn’t have embedding enabled, so here is the link.

Tommy, you do realize that as soon as I stop laughing (and change into dry pants), I’m going to have to kill first you (for showing it to me), and then the guy that posted that vid (for posting it)
