Someone Left a Cake Out in the Rain

Someone Left a Cake out in the RainMore than eighty cakes, actually, by various bakers. This is another BitTorrent compilation courtesy of my obsessive-compulsive disorder. Download here.

These songs are different versions of the Jimmy Webb song or directly inspired by it. There are a few parodies and even a track that dissects the history and lyrics courtesy of Lyrics Undercover.

Big thanks to Medea 2, The Dingo from Forgotten Albums, WFMU, and everyone else who's supported me in my obsession.

Damnnit, man! This is amazing. I really want to listen to this so I'm going to have to figure out the whole BitTorrent thing soon. I've somehow managed to avoid it until now.

Mike White said...

It's pretty easy once you get the hang of it. Just need a client and internet connection and you're off to the races.


Wisbech Sands said...

For someone without the time to trawl thru' all of these versions, who considers the Richard Harris one to be life changing and the Donna Summer one astounding, is there one in particular that can be recommended?

Mike White said...

Oh, they're *all* recommended Wisbech!

Charles Stark said...

Hey man, the torrent is down. Is there anywhere else it is up? Love the list!
