Right when you think musical collaborations couldn't get any weirder, reports that the Red Hot Chili Peppers' drummer Chad Smith recently teamed up with Dick Van Dyke to help create a children's album. The album will be titled "Rhythm Train" and is about a train traveling around the world. "I may not be playing as hard but I still am trying to be creative," Smith says. "It's just trying to make the songs as good as I can."

Van Dyke, now 84 years old, raps about making music while Smith provides the rhythm.  "Rap has a great beat," he says. "But I swear to God, I have never been able to understand one word. I don't know what they're saying."
