Omar Vizquel Proves It’s Possible To Make The Goo Goo Dolls Sound Worse

This past weekend I was shuffling nonchalantly through the $1 CD bin at Borders when something too good to be true caught my eye. There, staring me right in the face was  “Oh Say Can You Sing? Music Recordings By Major League Players.” After immediately grabbing the disc and proceeding through the checkout, three thoughts raced through my mind. First of all, holy shit! Second of all, I can’t believe they initially tried to charge $17.99 for this. And third of all, holy shit!

To be honest most of the recordings, song selections aside, aren’t all that bad. The majority of them, like Sean Casey and Jeff Conine and Kelly Wunsch sound like something you’d hear at a decent karaoke bar. Jimmy Rollins and Coco Crisp both rap capably, and the highlight of the album is probably Ozzie Smith’s surprisingly dead-on version of Sam Cooke’s “Cupid.”

There is one exception, however, in the form of Omar Vizquel singing the Goo Goo Dolls “Broadway.” Anyway, the performance is about what you’d expect from a major league athlete with limited musical traning, and for whom English is a second language. He kind of sounds like Triumph the Insult Comic auditioning for a boy band. Which the Goo Goo Dolls kind of are. Which, I suppose begs some questions about Omar Vizquel.

Anyway, take a listen for yourselves:

    LMAO — oh man, I hope that was done for charity or something. Thanks for the laugh! :-)

    Isn’t that Cheech Marin? ;-)

    Cheech Marin? Really? He may not be able to sing in his second language (and the Triumph reference was dead on) but how can you not recognize one of the best, if not the best defensive shortstop of all time?

    I would also add that ANYONE covering the Goo Goo Dolls is an improvement.

    Not a bad job by Omar on the audio. It doesn’t sound like the GGD’s, but that’s the point; it’s Omar’s version.

  5. Hey it wasn’t that bad – fire up the auto-tune and bring up the vocals in the mix, and he would be spot on. (And use the accent remover software.)

    Hilarious! And I’ll always love you, Omar.
