It’s May, It’s May, the Lusty Month of May

Joe MurphyPaul Fischer of the A.D.D. Cast tipped us off to an all-(podcast)-star cover of Jonathan Coulton’s song, First of May. The cover is a memorial tribute to the late science fiction podcaster, Joe Murphy.

Murphy was a co-host of the Kick-Ass Mystic Ninjas podcast, contributor to several other sci-fi related podcasts, and official book reviewer for Dragon Page. Murphy died April 1 of Leiomyosarcoma, a rare form of cancer that attacks the smooth muscles of the body and the inner lining of blood vessels.

A warning, though: First of May is not a work-safe song, nor appropriate for young listeners, as the chorus (and verses) of the lilting song are all about the beginning of the season for “f#$%ing outside.”

Participants in the The P-Cast Allstars’ “Band Aid” style performance include:
