We Love Good Cover Versions

February 15, 2009

Here’s a pretty good one.  Tori Amos covering Fleetwood Mac’s “Landslide.”  Far superior to The Smashing Pumpkins version released in 1994…and hey, I like the Pumpkins, too.

**Bonus**  I love Tori’s cover of Nirvana’s “Smells Like Teen Spirit” too.  Check it out.

Sounds better than I had anticipated.

“Everybody’s Gotta Learn Sometime” by Beck

January 13, 2009

We love Beck here at Chum HQ.  Enjoy his cover of “Everybody’s Gotta Learn Sometime,” originally performed by The Korgis, and featured in the magnificent film, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.

“Last Christmas”-the original by Wham, and a far superior cover version

November 30, 2008

A very closeted George Michael back in his Wham days. Notice as he hangs his head under the weight of living a lie. Well, the 15 lbs. of hair doesn’t help either, but still…

Dedicated to Izzy, a man whose love for that song is exceeded only by his love for publicly mooning his friends.  Not me of course…other friends.  Oh the shame…..

Next up is Kotaro Oshio performing a very nice acoustic cover of the song. Just a bit more understated than the Wham version.
