Clip du jour: 'The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air' theme song...folk-music style!

Posted on

I like folk music (my secret shame!), I like The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, I like unexpected covers. That said, I did not expect to enjoy a folk cover of the theme song from Fresh Prince. But it’s pretty rad. You got chocolate in my peanut butter, Kay Pettigrew!

To my enormous shock, Ms. Pettigrew is not the only guitar-strumming vocalist to cover the song.

That guy did too. And so did this guy (who combines it with another song):

The trend continues. These guys also incorporate “Fresh Prince” into a medley (and for the sensitive among you, this ditty contains some bad words):

A ukulele and violin duet? Sure!

Ingrid Michaelson does a version, too:

Mind = blown
