I never really got into P!nk, but I have always, always been into weird remixes that incorporate 80s songs by the Eurythmics.
This song has to be one of the best feel-good rap songs I’ve heard in ages. I put the video on loop for weeks until iTunes decided to offer it as a download and then I listened to it on my iPod for weeks after that.
I’ve saved this cover for last for a number of reasons. For one, I’ve never really listened to Bluegrass before, and this song prompted me to grab a few podcasts and dive in. Not necessarily my style of music, but it’s good to branch out and listen to a condensed version of a music genre [...]
I came to this song rather randomly – it was playing during a particularly pensive point in an episode of House. I don’t remember what was happening, but there was a lot of uneasiness as to whether or not is was Lupus. Or something.
There is absolutely nothing that I can say about this cover that has any more effect than just listening to it.
I’ve got a tendency to randomly put covers of Since U Been Gone on mix tapes I make for my girlfriend without realizing it, and this is still my favourite.
I discovered Obadiah Parker, and Mat Wheddle purely via this cover, and it’s always been one of my favourite random-song-to-acounstic covers.
I came to the realization that there are a LOT of stellar acoustic covers of songs that I listen to on a regular basis, so I’m going to devote next week to looking at these. Stay tuned for the first post on Monday!
Chromeo is already a really solid band, and when you bring MSTRKRFT into the mix, there is only awesome that can come out at the end. Tenderoni is already a fantastic song, and the remix turns all the right buttons.
I love video games. I love music.
