Hi, Alex! For stuff like "With a Little Yelp from My Friends," especially if an admin has already removed it, it's best to bring it up on the forums. I can't clearly discern anyone for the bass in that or anything that screams "Big Jeffy" (at least on the version aired on the show). You'd need to pinpoint specific time stamps or share clips to make your case, and if a consensus is reached, then it can be added. But the "It sounds just like" has been made too often and incorrectly (even by admins sometimes), so if a statement like that is removed again, just start a forum thread for it and try to make your case. Thanks!
Fair enough then. If you do want to hear where I did the comparisons, I listened to Big Jeffy singing “rock, rock, rock.... the telephone rock!” in a very low, guttery (and pretty off-key) bass voice and compared it to when the Dalmatian dog sings “with a little yelp from my friends!” and every following line afterwards, which has practically the same range and consistency with the vocal tone/slight roughness to it. When he also sings “When you’re sad, we’re behind ya!” And “when you’re mad, we’ll go find ya!” the voice actually matched pretty closely to Thog (I probably should have mentioned that as well, but the summary can only put in so many words).
Yeah, it's better if you start a thread, and include a time stamp for videos. I couldn't make out where it's even supposed to be the dalmatian singing since it's all mixed in too well and no clear solos.
Hey Wattamack, you know I have some of the songs with audience SFX on my YT channel. I uploaded We're All Monsters, C is for Cookie, and Fur. All these I ripped from the Monster Hits DVD. I'll eventually post the original version of "We're All Monsters" with the audience cheering SFX mixed in if you like.
P.S. Last summer, when I had the sound up watching one video of the original cut of the "We're All Monsters" (now gone from YT), when the grey monster said, "'Cause we are all monsters!," I suprisingly heard the audience cheering noise right there, and it scared the crap outa me.
Actually, until recently, all videos of the "original" were taken from the dubbed version, switching the audio with that from an album release of the original recording. A true video copy of the clip as originally aired (without switching the audio) wasn't online until this year.
Not too much. I am a little concerned with SS's YT account as I mentioned on chat, although I think (and hope) it's termination may be temporary. I've seen it happen before; of course, you're living proof of that ;)
Well, Sesame Street's YouTube channel WAS official, and it WAS a partner, so hopefully SW and YT can solve all this delema out. It's a little dissapointing this happened, especially considering this is a channel for CHILDREN, and there could be alot of angry parents now from seeing this incident. -sigh- But, if I had a guess, hopefully they could solve this out and then their channel can be restored, along with their videos. After all, even though the videos were removed from the hacker, who's to say YouTube can't restore them?
And to think also, YouTube's security was supposed to be "safe". I guess YouTube wasn't really the appropriate place for Sesame Street clips to be posted - they may as well have to just stick with Hulu and sesamestreet.org now. But who knows. I don't know if you've read, but apparently the "hackers" being accused were just two regular YouTuber's. I doubt it's the case, and it's really none of my business, but whoever it was, I hope they get charged or heck, even go to prison for creating child porn.
