Fabulous! A riot
(5 out of 5 stars)

"A friend of mine brought this album back after spending a year in Europe in 1995. We played it every day at work that summer (to the delight or chagrin of our coworkers) and I never once got sick of it. Finally, last fall, I broke down and special-ordered my own copy. I am so glad I did. I generally go for classical music and operatic selections, but Mike Flowers makes a refreshing diversion (one can't have the "Ring" cycle every time out). The arrangements are bright, shiny, and light as a bubble, and Mike must have a really wry sense of humor to pull off such selections as "Wonderwall" and a "Velvet Underground Medley." If you're looking for something to brighten up your day, this will definitely do the trick."
Really hilarious

"The most wonderful one hit wonder of the 90's. The album is mostly parodic Burt Bacharach kind of versions of different artists' songs. But unlike most humor music, this is both funny and good music. The hit, "Wonderwall" by Oasis sounds better than the original version. "1999" by Prince is another hilarious song, the liner notes say it's recorded at the end of the millenium party. Flowers also wrote a few songs himself. One of them, "A Groovy Place" is one of the best songs on the album. I'd love to hear another Mike Flowers Pops album but I doubt there will be one. This kind of thing couldn't have done more than once."
Mike Flowers is a "Groovy" kind of guy.

"Mike was terribly famous during my first year in Britain, 1995-96. His wonderful loungecore version of Oasis's "Wonderwall" was #2 on the Billboard Charts, second only to "King of Pop" Michael Jackson - so somebody was listening! It proves that loungecore can be mainstream and very pleasing to lots of people. And that's what this album is. Full of humour and fun, he takes a musically masterful stab at the seriousness of Bjork, Noel & Liam Gallagher, Jim Morrison and Lou Reed. He makes these songs delightful and great for parties! Alas, his popularity and novelty has sort of faded in Britain since this album's release, just as the loungecore swing revival has hit full throttle here in the States. I wish more Americans knew about Mike. I'm sure they would enjoy this groovy guy and the groovy place he can take them to."
