[ # ] Where are the Oompa Loompas when you need them?
August 15th, 2016 under Barbra Streisand, Seth MacFarlane


Barbra Streisand and Seth MacFarlane recorded Pure Imagination from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, and someone needs to call the Oompa Loompas ASAP. Time for them come on over and take them away for destroying such a beautiful song. Glee got it right. Josh Groban got it right. Maroon 5 got it semi-right. Mariah Carey got it wrong. And now MacBabs are giving Mimi a run for worst cover of the song that still haunts us thanks to Gene Wilder. That is the thing that MacBabs missed about the tune, yes it is beautiful but it is also haunting. Without that factor, the song is no different than any other ballad.
And what is up with Babs arm movements as she sang the song. Take them to The Chocolate Room and tell them the water is safe to drink!

Oompa, Loompa, doom-pa-dee-do
I have a perfect puzzle for you
Oompa, Loompa, doom-pa-dee-dee
If you are wise, you’ll listen to me.
What do you get when you sing a duet?
Singing as hyper as a wooden puppet
What are you at getting terribly flat?
What do you think will come of that?
I don’t like the sound of it.
