“Mad World” Gary Jules (Tears for Fears)

Posted on February 05, 2011

I cannot believe I’m just getting around to posting this hauntingly beautiful cover of Tears for Fears’ “Mad World” by Gary Jules. Did you first catch onto this through Donnie Darko, a video game commercial or some other means? I’d love to hear!

“Two Out of Three” Jamey Johnson (Meat Loaf)

Posted on October 22, 2010

Jamey Johnson is hereby forgiven for co-writing “Honky Tonk Badonka Donk.” Of course, if push came to shove, he wouldn’t even have to do this awesome cover for me to forgive him. He’s old-school country and I dig it.

“The Promise” Blue October (When in Rome)

Posted on September 18, 2010

Wow. Has it really been late December 2009 since the last post? Color me embarrassed.

I guess having our second son in early January put this blog on the back burner. Even so, it’s been averaging over 500 hits a month on a consistent basis – with no new content in almost 9 months.

Here’s new-wave ballad “The Promise” by When in Rome, performed acoustically for a radio show by Blue October. This tune gained some renewed interest when it was used in the closing scene of Napoleon Dynamite. I really enjoy being able to focus on the well crafted lyrics, which are brought out in this cover.

I’m back!

“Go Your Own Way” The Cranberries (Fleetwood Mac)

Posted on December 29, 2009

For my wife, who is not feeling well today. I hope you dig it, Lil Bit.

“Hazy Shade of Winter” Salim (Simon & Garfunkel)

Posted on December 28, 2009

Open Mic Monday!

Here’s Salim of Kenya with a cover of Simon & Garfunkel or the Bangles, depending on your age. I love this because there are animals making noise around the microphone while the man sings and plays. Cool guitar too.

“When the Stars Go Blue” The Corrs & Bono (Ryan Adams)

Posted on December 10, 2009

Yeah, I did the Corrs. Three beautiful Irish sisters who can sing pop songs while playing traditional instruments. Sorry, can’t forget the brother is OK too. Ryan Adams puts out so much material. One hopes that covers by the likes of Tim McGraw and these children of Ireland help turn people on to the rest of his catalog. Just stay away from “Jacksonville City Lights” unless you want to be really depressed.

“We are the Champions” Green Day (Queen)

Posted on December 08, 2009

Hopefully I’ll be posting this again on January 8th, 2010. RTR.

Green Day is one of those bands that I was intrigued by immediately. But I thought they’d be a 15-minute of fame band. More than a one hit wonder, but not a band that we would get to watch grow artistically. Was I ever wrong.

How many punk bands can pull off a cover of Queen? I know, I know….somehow since they are commercially successful, the aren’t punk anymore. To that I say “BOLLOCKS!”

Billie Joe has always struggled with a pitchy voice. But I think Freddie Mercury would approve of this tribute.

“Amos Moses” Dale Watson (Jerry Reed)

Posted on December 04, 2009

Primus probably has the best known cover of this swamp rock classic. But Dale Watson, who is trying his best to keep real country alive and well, does a good job. In fact, this wasn’t part of his set. A fan screamed it out and he obliged.

I posted this because it is about killin’ gators. Roll Tide tomorrow y’all!

“Don’t Bring Me Down” New Pornographers (E.L.O.)

Posted on December 03, 2009

Who doesn’t love singing “Ooh-woo-hoo!” in falsetto? This is the best audio I could find of a live performance.

“Fortunate Son” Todd Snider (Creedance Clearwater Revival)

Posted on September 24, 2009

Todd Snider is a great songwriter. Period. Up there with Tom T Hall, Townes Van Zandt and Randy Newman. It all starts with being a great story teller. That’s evident on all of his albums. His sense of humor is great too as you’ll find out when he introduces his set or tunes his strings. of But he can also do a great cover. This is just what a great cover is all about. Here’s Todd with “Fortunate Son” from Creedence Clearwater Revival.
