Something Out Of This World From Stephen Hawking

Cambridge, England-- Famed physicist Dr. Stephen Hawking is launching a new career as a singer. The wheel-chair bound genius sings 10 songs on a new CD, with his eerie electronic voice. The background music is from a Moog synthesizer, giving the songs a unique--and very alien--texture to them.

Dr. Hawking first song is a cover of 'My Way'. Although his bizarre mechanical voice cannot match Frank Sinatra, Dr. Hawking gives the song his own special poignancy. Those who have heard the song say it sounds like a Dalek singing while on acid.

Dr. Hawking also covers a Beatles song from the 'Sgt. Pepper Album' for his new CD. The fab physicist sings 'A Day In The Life' without any background music. His mechanical voice never runs out of breath, and he can hold all musical notes indefinitely. 'A Day In The Life' is not for everbody--it runs for over 8 hours.

The final song on the CD is a duet. Dr. Hawking sings 'Daisy' with the HAL 9000 computer from the movie '2001:A Space Odyssey. The science-fiction movie from 1968 seems to have anticipated Dr. Hawkings. Both the Hal 9000 computer and Dr. Hawking sing in the exact same key!
