Thus far it's been relatively easy for our family to resist the Evil Cultural Force that is The Wiggles. We played a few songs on sampler CD's when The Lad was littler, and he might have watched the show a few times on premium cable at his Grands', but he's remained largely unmoved by the group's relentlessly upbeat wackiness.
That said, a couple of cultural artifacts have come this way which deserve note. One is a bizarre and in some ways incredible Wiggly cover of "Walk on the Wild Side," which according to the Copy, Right? blog is taken from a (promo-only?) covers collection put together by an Australian DJ.
And in order to avoid having to do two separate posts about the Wiggles, I might as well also put up a pretty hilarious mash-up which made the rounds a bit last fall - of the W's with "Blitzkrieg Bop" and "I Wanna Be Sedated."
