So I have been listening to classic R&B this week as I bemoan the state of contemporary music and decided to find a good cover of Otis Redding. And this isn’t too bad.
The late Chris Cornell takes this classic from Michael Jackson strips it down and gives it a very raw visceral sound.
Yes once again we have the Postmodern Jukebox off their album Fake Blues. Frank X. Turk pointed me to this cover and I am glad he did.
Frank Turk had a Beatles quiz on Facebook and I of course had to take it. I got a 100 on the test and this Earworm in my head.
So I was playing the drive your coworkers crazy with pop songs they can’t get out of their head game at work when I scored a telling blow with this Britney song. And for some reason I wondered what indie bands had ever covered pop songs which led me to Travis. So take a minute and enjoy.
If you have watched the Walking Dead or Longmire you probably have heard Wye Oak’s Civilian. This indie duo that takes its name from their birth state’s tree (go look it up).
So when I just couldn’t get rid of this Pat Benatar hit I started looking for someone who covered it and did it well. I found two and Wye Oak won. take a moment and enjoy.
The song of the homicidal hammerfest brought to you by the lovely Mona Lisa Twins.
One of my favorite Rich Mullins songs was covered by one of my favorite bands. And has been playing in the background of my head for thirtysix hours at the time of this post. So here is Caedmon’s Call with Hope to Carry On.
One of my favorite songs covered by Jars of Clay. So enjoy.
I had nothing this week all my time was spent at work so today I had a brief moment to myself and found this excellent cover of a Prince classic, enjoy Chris Cornell.
