Support the independent voice of Dallas and help keep the future of Dallas Observer free.

Stumbled across the above clip recently, which features one Robert Gomez offering up his take on The Theater Fire's hilariously named "The Testicle Song" and giving the most beautifully arranged song we've ever heard about genitalia an even more subtle, almost dainty undertone.

We highly recommend you check it out--and keep your ears perked for it at future Gomez shows, too, as the video's accompanying post on Gomez's Web site indicates that he'll be playing the cover during some upcoming performances.

Meanwhile, in barely related news, Burleson's own Kelly Clarkson has been dipping her toes all up in the cover song waters of late, too. At her New York City tour stop last night, Clarkson covered Patsy Cline, The White Stripes, The Black Keys, Kings of Leon and Alanis Morrisette--all within the span of a 20-song set, which is kinda crazy, no? Anyway, MTV News, predictably, thought it was amazing. So there's that.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
