So I was on Twitter when someone asked what were my top five 80’s songs and Let’s Dance by David Bowie was on that list. So guess what has been running through my head today? So here’s Walk the Moon.
So a person who follows me on Twitter, Sunday Nutter, was kind enough to point me to another electric bluesman. So enjoy Aynsley Lister covering that Prince classic Purple Rain.
So I was listening to the Andrew Klavan (no ‘e’) podcast when under stuff he likes comes this song that I can’t get out of my head. So yes I was earwormed. So I went looking for this artist and well the result is this Wednesday’s earworm.
So here is Lianne La Havas covering a classic by Aretha Franklin.
Ah Nickelback, one of those guilty pleasures like that hidden tub of Hagen Das that you think your wife doesn’t know about. You know you shouldn’t but there’s just no better snack at midnight. So here’s Anthem Lights medley of Nickelback’s hits.
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.
