I hate fracking as much as the next guy and “Don’t Frack My Mother” (which was just uploaded) is catchy and well-performed, but somehow the idea of another ensemble of spirited touchy-feely celebrities singing about a heinous practice that everyone needs to condemn…somehow it doesn’t quite cut it. It needs to be shot in a more stylistically striking way or something. Or perhaps it would be better if actors not known for their singing abilities were to sing it. Or (this is pretty good) if dead actors could sing it. You know…use clips from old musicals and synch the song to their lip movements.
Plus the song is several months old, having been performed by Sean and Yoko Lennon on Jimmy Fallon last summer. Plus there’s just something about the timbre of Yoko’s voice, man. It grates. Always has.
