Isn't Crazy Train an Ozzy Osbourne song, not Iron Maiden?
I don't know Iron Maiden or Ozzy, but I know Thomas the Tank Engine (three sons and countless trains, tracks and videos)--and the idea of re-mastering Thomas videos with heavy metal soundtracks is comedy gold, my friends.
Every time Diesel shows up, they could play "Back in Black".
Sir Topham Hatt could trade the plain old hat for something a la Slash from GNR, plus a kinky-haired wig-fro.
When James's shed door opens, "It's Raining Men" and the sounds of a bunch of guys partying should be heard, abruptly cut off by the doors closing behind him. (Sheepish grins all around.)
Let me know if I'm going too far here, folks.
Yeah, I'm in the same boat as phloggy....long time reader, first time posting here. If anyone knows anything about Ozzy at all, the association with "Crazy Train" is generally a top known fact. I'm all for parodying hard rock/heavy metal, (even though I'm a big fan of it!) but the joke was lost with this snafu Dave!
Eh, the joke still works fine.
I'm a long time reader and also a HUGE Maiden and Ozzy fan and I caught the mistake right away too.
But so what?
All this really shows is that Dave's probably not a metal fan (the evidence for my assumption is visible through the music links he has on the home page)
The joke is still great in my opinion. A musical called "Crazy Train" staring Thomas the Train? Come on! That's funny!
The understudy could be the Little Train That Could.
That's sounds great. Then we can double bill this event with Soul Asylum's Runaway Train.
The story of people trapped on a runaway train being hijacked and stolen and it is ridden out of town.
