“Sexual Healing” as covered by Ben Harper

February 22, 2009

Most people shouldn’t cover Marvin Gaye.  Ben Harper, however, is not one of those people that is prohibited from such covers.  Check out Harper’s version of Marvin Gaye’s classic “Sexual Healing.”

“Rootless Tree” by Damien Rice

February 18, 2009

A slightly reworked version, recorded live at Abbey Road studios.  The lovely Lisa Hannigan, whom I have a voice crush on, on backup vocals.  1 particularly NSFW vocal, which is actually part of the chorus.  But hey, it really adds to the song.

If you liked this, check out Damien performing “Volcano” live from the same Abbey Road studio sessions.

“Wave of Mutilation” by The Pixies

October 17, 2008

Live at The Eurockeenes Festival in Belfort, France.  I loved The Pixies back in the day.

“The Final Countdown”-possibly the worst cover you might ever hear.

August 29, 2008

We posted a band from Norway’s rockabilly cover of Europe’s The Final Countdown earlier this month. Now, we present possibly the worst cover, of a bad song to begin with, ever. No idea of who this band is or where they’re playing. You must watch all of it. It’s hypnotically bad. The famous synthesizer part sounds like it’s played on a Fisher Price “My First Keyboard.” Seriously, watch the whole thing. You’ll thank me.

R&B duo K-Ci and JoJo reunite and then 1/2 of them promptly passes out on stage. *cough* crackhead *cough*

August 25, 2008

This is just 1 small example of why I love the internet. Thanks to a mobile camera phone and Youtube, you get to watch an example of an onstage meltdown all the way over in Australia.

A Perez Hilton sent this description to Perez’s site:

So last night some friends and I went to see a Jodeci “reunion tour” at the Enmore theater in Sydney. Mate, the whole thing was a disaster. First, one of the guys (Devante I think) didn’t even show up, so it became a K-ci and JoJo concert. JoJo came on stage and right away you could tell he was messed right up- he kept forgetting the words to songs and just was a general weirdo. But then, after about 40 minutes into the “show” he decided to sit right down on the floor. His brother, the other crackhead K-ci was trying his best to carry the show on his own. By far, the best part of the evening was when JoJo walked off stage for about 5 minutes, then came back out to sing “All My Life”- and PASSED OUT mid song. His brother told the audience that they were tired after their 24-hour flight and that JoJo had gotten dizzy.

Watch Jo Jo come out around the 0:55 second mark, followed closely by a bodyguard. It’s all downhill from there. I’m not sure what’s funnier, the guy passing out or K-Ci saying “Give it up for Jo Jo” while the guy is out cold on the stage.  Priceless.

How Britney Spears actually sounds when she sings.

Her microphone isolated.  This isn’t what the audience hears as the pre-recorded track is broadcast to the audience.  Britney’s Lip-synching is actually to the audience’s benefit.

How to prepare for a summer music festival

July 20, 2008

A pretty good starting point for thriving and surviving a summer music festival. It should also be added that you want to avoid a few things in particular to have a great time at shows this summer.

1. Dairy products
2. Jimmy Buffett concerts
3. Guys that look like the one below, particularly if they ask if you know where to “score” and if you’re “cool” or not.

Check out the guide here.
