Mashup Has Peanuts Gang Playing Rush’s ‘2112’

By FYI Staff

If you've got 20 minutes to spare, and like Charlie Brown and Rush, you will want to watch this impressively well-executed combination of cartoon clips set to music produced by Terry Brown and performed by Geddy Lee, Alex Lifeson and Neil Peart.


YouTube user Garren Lazar, has edited clips of Charlie Brown and the gang singing along to “Jet Airliner” by Steve Miller, “Freebird” by Lynyrd Skynyrd, and the entirety of Pink Floyd’s The Wall, but he says that parodying Rush’s classic 1976 album 2112 was challenging.

Posting on YouTube, Lazar states: “Ladies and gentlemen, 2112 is officially the most difficult Peanuts Parody I've ever made to date. I know what you're thinking; ‘you did the entire The Wall album by Pink Floyd! How is this harder?’ It's not about the length that makes doing a parody of a song a challenge, it's the aesthetics of a song. 2112 was not all about syncing, I had to incorporate other skills other than Final Cut Pro; such as Adobe Photoshop, and other tools to make this video possible. But, in the end, it was worth it, and I hope that you all enjoy it!”

The Canadian icon is bringing his Love Earth Tour with Crazy Horse to Winnipeg, Edmonton, Calgary and Burnaby. He's also added a second date at Toronto's Budweiser Stage, accompanying the release of his new album, FU##IN' UP.

Neil Young is showing some love to Canadian cities on his Love Earth tour. While his original tour announcement featured just one stop in his home country, in Toronto's Budweiser Stage, he's now announced dates in Manitoba, Alberta and B.C., as well as a second show at Toronto's Budweiser Stage, in response to "incredible fan demand."

The original tour was set to kick off in San Diego at the end of April and finish in Chicago in May. These five new dates pick things back up in July, with stops in Toronto, Edmonton, Calgary, and Young's hometown of Winnipeg. The tour finishes at Deer Lake Park in Burnaby B.C.
