Patton Oswalt is an actor, comedian, writer, dad, Spiderman villain, taste tester, and now, a song subject. As part of a plea to get Oswalt to attend 826CHI’s Promic-Con fundraiser, A.V. Club freelancer Sam Zelitch wrote 59 songs about Oswalt and sent them to him via Twitter. Unfortunately, Oswalt is unavailable for the fundraiser, but Zelitch did send the songs to The A.V. Club, and we’re streaming some of our favorites below, including one that’s set to the tune of The Little Mermaid’s “Part Of Your World.” Some are better than others—quickly writing 59 songs about one person makes that pretty much inevitable—but all the tracks are streaming on Zelitch’s Soundcloud page.
For those in Chicago, 826CHI’s Promic-Con is this Saturday, April 27, at the School Of The Art Institute. Tickets are still available, and proceeds benefit the thousands of Chicago students enrolled in 826CHI’s free writing programs.
