Awesome…….You know Courtney Love is spinning in her grave now after what was done to her hubby’s song.  Wait…one moment…….Ok, no shit?  Apparently Courtney Love is still alive.

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.

Recording Nirvana Part 4: Smells Like Teen Spirit. Deconstructed by Butch Vig
July 7th, 2008 by Christian Cummings

The “coupe de grace” that killed crappy metal, this song and the recording of Smells Like Teen Spirit changed the face of music. In part 4, Nevermind producer Butch Vig again solo’s out sections of the multi-track, showcasing the vocals, the solo, and the energy. Truly awesome insight into an infamous song. Also, I dig how Kurt’s voice sounds like he’s been gargling acid by the end of the track.

Even though Pro Tools seems to be up in the mix, I’m glad to see Butch is still working on his SSL.

Tori Amos covers Nirvana’s “Smells Like Teen Spirit”

Look, I’ll tell you right now, I typically can’t stand her music, much to the chagrin of my wife who is a big fan. However, she does a great cover of “Smells Like Teen Spirit” really putting a unique spin on it. Ok, maybe she should stick to covering other people’s material.
