win a free CD and book!

Greetings. Voice actor Fred (son of Paul) Frees and I are working on an album idea: a sequel to his father’s Paul Frees and the Poster People album, in which he will sing popular songs in the style of celebrities. We’d like your help for ideas. Especially weird (young Brando singing “Bicycle Race”) or perfect (Curly singing “Stuck in the Middle with You”) ideas. Feel free to email your notions to benohmart@gmail.com. But first, a few stipulations:

  1. The voice imitated must be deceased. This is what Paul did on his album.
  2. We’re seeking more known voices and songs; not things that would be rather obscure to the average listener, like Billy Halop singing Streisand’s “Superman”.
  3. We can’t use everything. There aren’t many slots available. And Fred can’t imitate everyone, either. All ideas submitted become our property.
  4. When you send your ideas, please let me know where you found out about this query – Facebook, OTR digest, the BearManor mailing list, etc.

If we use your idea, you get a free copy of the CD, signed by Fred Frees, and a free copy of the 2nd edition of my Paul Frees biography, which will be out before Christmas. Thanks in advance for your ideas!
