A cover song has to add something really special to the original for me to take it seriously – think ELO’s “Roll Over Beethoven” or Soft Cell’s “Tainted Love” – and I think this is definitely in that category.
It’s totally worth it just to hear Hawking “say” “bugger all”.
Unfortunately, the song doesn’t seem to be available in the US yet, and the Asteroids game requires me to sign in using a social media account, and since I’m totally anti-social, I don’t have one. And I don’t want to give out my email address to play what seems like a Flash game. Oh well.
