Barenaked Chicken (Stavros the Wonder Mix)

I just found this on Spotify: Barenaked Chicken (Stavros the Wonder Mix) [non-Europeans might be better off clicking the Amazon link - it's track 17].

I've been around long enough to know that this isn't the most stellar use of MetaTalk, but it amused and confused me in equal measure. Surely this can only be a reference to Metafilter's Own™? The Amazon review says "as the titles of the tracks suggest, iGod is also paying a great deal of homage to his predecessors in both electronic and experimental music". How many other cod-Greek wonder chickens are there? And how many can credibly be classified as experimental music pioneers? Is iGod a Mefite? Is Stavros iGod? How many roads must a man walk down? Anyone seen this before? Class? Anyone? Anyone?

That's nice for Mr. Chicken. But the story I really want to hear is how you managed to go back in time and finagle a shout-out from Richard Scarry. That's truly impressive.

I think I've unravelled the mystery...

The title of the album is "Google Search and Destroy". Unless (the real) Stavros pops up to say different, my theory is that this guy googled a few words for each of his songs and used the results as titles. I imagine there are quite a few google searches involving "chicken" and "wonder" that would return our Stavros as the top result.

What if iGod was one of us?

I will admit that this leaves me scared and bewildered, but also mildly aroused, so: pretty much business as usual.

A google for 'wonder chicken' puts stav's site on number 2, so I wouldn't be surprised!

The one who comments, embiggens.

I saw a chicken drinking a piña colada at Trader Vic's. And his head was cut off.
