Fred Schneider Is Not An Everyday Person

Jul 17th, 2008 // 6 Comments


In this fan-recorded clip from a few weeks ago, the B-52′s, Cyndi Lauper, Erasure, and others come together to belt out a gleeful version of Sly and the Family Stone’s inclusive anthem “Everyday People.” It seems like a blast, but the amusing thing about the clip is the way every time Fred Schneider perks up and sings louder, it feels as though you’ve just bitten into something weird and unexpected. Sort of like finding a Gummi Bear in the middle of an Italian hero. [YouTube]
