Under the Sea

Squirrel Nut Zippers - Under the Sea
[originally from The Little Mermaid]
My 2nd favourite band out of Chapel Hill, North Carolina (must be something in the water there)... Squirrel Nut Zippers with their rendition of Under the Sea. They performed it for some sort of Disney album, though it was rejected from the final selection. But they later got to release it on their "best-of" album.

Guttermouth - Under the Sea [mmm... not a cover]
While on my endless quest for cover songs, I came across this rather chipper punk version of Under the Sea... or so I thought. It became pretty obvious it was not a cover of the Disney tune, but it's a funny song nonetheless.

1. Thanks! I read about this Squirrel Nut Zippers cover about ten years ago, and never thought I'd get my hands on it. So you can imagine my chagrin that I am so close, yet...

2. The links don't seem to be working!

Enjoying the blogs, otherwise. Keep it up.

I tried the SNZ link and you're right, it froze halfway through the download. I re-uploaded it and it seems to work. But if you still have problems, then I may have to use a different file-hosting service. Hope that helps.

Thanks for reading!

Hey, cool to hear from you. It would've been amazing to be around during the Zippers heyday, but I have a tendency to find out about great bands well after the fact... Is this latest incarnation of the Squirrel Nut Zippers just a one-off event? I'd sure like to hear more! Here's to a brand new year, best wishes to you and the band, Chris.
