Among the string of Norm Lebrecht’s 10/17/2013 posts is one titled Worst classical covers of 2013 and it delivers what it promises vis-a-vis a string of curious album covers, not to mention one that is borderline creepy. Thankfully, Lebrecht’s post jogged my memory about a similar article from classicfm.com back in July I intended to write about but promptly forgot after getting sidetracked by labor dispute news. Here’s a few more that should be on a list somewhere.
Granted, these two are more of a retro crossover pop thing than strictly classical but as a tuba player, I die a little inside every time this nonsense crosses my path.
Apparently Honey Boo Boo is getting cultured. Surely this will save classical music!

I never knew that you were a tuba player, Drew. That explains a lot (all good of course!)
