Original Song: Bob Dylan "Mr. Tambourine Man" (1965)


Sorry, Captain Kirk fans, not “so bad it's good.” Just bad. As everybody probably knows by now, Shatner simply over-acts the lyrics á la drugged-out interpretive poetry. Along with “Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds,” this was the centerpiece of an album called The Transformed Man, the awfulness of which soon became legendary. Eventually, he mined a veritable side career out of it.
