chipmunkson16speed: Marvin & The Chipmunks Go Trip-Hop

Brian Borcherdt, a musician from Toronto, has been playing around with old Marvin & The Chipmunks 45s and took the radical step of playing them back at 16 r.p.m. to reveal the vocals as they would have been sung - and contributions by some pretty high-quality session singers in the process.

The results are ... variable, and some songs work better than others.

The star appears to be the epic cover of the Bangles' "Walk Like An Egyptian":

though Tom Petty's "Refugee" has a certain woozy charm.
