Well here's a weird one. Tyler, The Creator has covered the 19th century song "Daisy Bell," best known as the "bicycle built for two" song.Â
The cover is part of a compilation entitledÂ The Gay Nineties â Olde Tyme Music, put out by artist Mark Ryden in conjunction with his art exhibit in L.A. calledÂ "The Gay Nineties West." The compilation features artists such as Katy Perry and Weird Al Yankovic all covering "Daisy Bell," ending up with a diverse collection of versions of the same song.
As you might expect, Tyler's version is trippy, strange and a little demented, beginning with a dialog sample from the film "2001: A Space Odyssey."
Daisy, Daisy, give me your answer do
I'm half crazy all for the love of you
It won't be a stylish marriage
I can't afford a carriage
But you'll look sweet upon the seat
Of a bicycle built for two
