Things We Saw Today: Jonathan Coulton Sticking It To Glee


The saga that is musician Jonathan Coulton vs. FOX/Glee continues (read up if you’re not familiar). Coulton has released his original cover version on iTunes, Google, and Amazon under the name, “Baby Got Back (In the Style of Glee).” He’s going split the proceeds between The VH1 Save the Music Foundation and The It Gets Better Project and even joked Glee should do the same. As of publishing this post, Coulton’s song has surpassed all the other songs from that episode of Glee on the charts.

    Damn GLEE. Always making twisted abominations out of EVERYTHING

    I’m wondering if 36 supervillain musical numbers is a few too many. If you have to include songs from “Thumbelina” and “Rock-a-Doodle,” it probably is. And what kind of crazy criteria are they using where “Hellfire” from “Hunchback of Notre Dame” is a runner-up?

    What an odd, unorganized pile of villain songs. Props for remembering “Every Little Piece” and digging up the would-be Yzma song (which…huh), but sheesh, if we’re throwing in everything but the kitchen sink (and a number as random as 36 seems to indicate more of a “All of the villain songs I could remember” instead of “greatest”), might as well add “No More Mr. Nice Guy” from Swan Princess. And, oh, every villain song ever, I guess. (“B Movie Show” from Brave Little Toaster, anyone?)

    Oh ho ho boy. XD

    Will Fox rise to the bait? It’s like he’s just daring them to sue and escalate this mess.

    Daring Fox to sue him? For what? For re-releasing a song that he legally obtained the right to sell in 2005? That doesn’t make any sense. Arrangements of cover songs are legally owned by the original artist because that’s how the Harry Fox licenses are structured. Only Sir Mix-a-Lot is in a position to sue over a Baby Got Back cover, and he has nothing to gain because he’s already recieving royalties for both versions.

    Nostalgia Critic did a top 11 villain songs, and Hellfire was, as it should be, number one.
