Listen to ‘Deadpool: The Musical’ On Ukulele by Editor Jordan White (Ft. Daniel Way on Guitar)

In this week’s Deadpool #49.1, writer Daniel Way and artist John McCrea brought readers Deadpool: The Musical, a rousing romp through the Merc with a Mouth’s history meant to catch new readers up before next month’s big 50th issue. Of course, pulling off a musical in a completely visual medium might seem difficult, but Way and McCrea were able to pull it off by setting the dialogue to popular songs you already know, like “O.P.P.” and Britney Spears’ “Hit Me Baby One More Time.” Don’t act like you can’t sing along.

Still, that doesn’t quite give you the full experience, which is where Deadpool #49.1 editor and noted ukulelist Jordan White comes in with his own unofficial audio version of Deadpool: The Musical, featuring Way on guitar and bass! Listen to the five-minute epic below.

To finish the track on time, White spent several nights staying up ’til 2 AM, providing vocals, bongos, bass, and his signature ukulele. As a result, now you can hear “Chocolate Rain” as it was always meant to be sung: By a man pretending to be the Enchantress, Ms. Marvel and Spider-Woman:

The end result is a lot of fun, and it even features a special appearance by Way, dropping in a little electric guitar on a parody of the Misfits’ “Last Caress.” Incidentally, that’s the Glenn Danzig Misfits, although I wouldn’t mind if they teamed up for a tribute album to the bad guys from Jem and the Holograms either.

In addition to streaming, White has made the track available as a free download so that you can enjoy it whenever you get the urge to relive Deadpool’s musical highlights. So grab it, stick it on a playlist along with the Nextwave theme song, and enjoy it as many times as you like.
