Cover versions: Different and decent
« on: Wednesday 18 April 2012, 12:27:47 am »
A mate made me a double CD of cover versions, and I am building the perfect reply. I wondered if you guys could pull any magic suggestions out of the ether.

Now I'm not necessarily talking about cover versions that are better (http://www.newcastle-online.org/nufcforum/index.php/topic,49784.0.html) and I'm not really looking for obvious ones like Hurt, or ones where loads of people actually think it's the original (Tainted Love). I'm not even necessarily looking for great ones, just interesting ones like the Groove Armada cover of Crazy For You and Mika/Van Helden's Can't Stand Losing You off that Radio One album a few years back.

Amaze me.
Obviously, I'm speaking of a hypothetical world in which there is a greater club than Tottenham.

Newcastle 4-4 Arsenal: "From impending tragedy to near-triumph via the most improbable route possible - 95 minutes that neatly encapsulate 130 years of football on this particular piece of grass. Newcastle, United, will never be defeated."

Sir Bobby Robson - What is a club in any case? Not the buildings or the directors or the people who are paid to represent it. It’s not the television contracts, get-out clauses or the marketing departments or executive boxes. It’s the noise, the passion, the feeling of belonging, the pride in your city.

Quite like Lily Allens cover of Oh My God by Kaiser Chiefs. Then again, I quite like most things Lily Allen.

nouvelle vague do loads but heres my faves....



and especially....

Bullshitters misrepresent themselves to their audience not as liars do, that is, by deliberately making false claims about what is true. In fact, bullshit need not be untrue at all.

Rather, bullshitters seek to convey a certain impression of themselves without being concerned about whether anything at all is true. They quietly change the rules governing their end of the conversation so that claims about truth and falsity are irrelevant.

Great topic like. Love listening to cover versions as they can so polarising. That and Mash Ups.

Aurora - ordinary World. Album version.

Better than Duran's original.

Big shout to madras' suggestion of Hounds of Love, The Futureheads. Better than the original, IMO.
