Just out of curiosity, but didn't one of the orginal posts in this thread ask if we would limit our inclusions to one per person per day? That suer made it easier to keep up with everyone's postings of songs.

Okay, I can't think of any more "E" groups at the moment, so I'll go back to "D".

I have always been in awe of the genius of Thomas Dolby. Musician, lyricist, composer, genius. If you ask most people to identify him, I'm sure 90% would either not remember him or say he was the one-hit wonder who hit with "She Blinded Me With Science." But I know differently. Though he looked like a nuclear biologist in that video, I know that he is just as smart. If there were one musician, living or dead, whose brain I would love to pick over dinner, it would be him.

Picking one video from his vast repertoire is tough, but I've always loved the snarky tone of my video pick for Wednesday, December 3. Just listen to the lyrics, you'll find yourself laughing. And the video! How hard is it to choreograph cardboard?

I saw the Dropkick Murphy's this summer at Lelacheur Field in Lowell, MA, where the Red Sox A ball team plays. They did all the Sox minor league ballparks and they are going to use the performances on for their next live album. Micky Ward, who the Warrior's Code was written about was there, so was the family of Andrew Farrar, the subject of the song Last Letter Home. It was an amazing show.

Shryke,

Saw Thomas Dolby in a 400 seat club this past Summer, and the guy still is amazing with what he can do. Sounds like we have pretty similar musical tastes although my wife was the one with 1500 CD collection when I met her.


Can't believe I was the only vote for these guys in the 76 - 85 poll. Added the 1st one only because it's uber-cool, but the 2nd one is a modern day classic

Barca,

Excellent choice, and they should definitely be in the upper half of the bracket for the 86 - 95 poll.

Have you ever seen either their MTV Unplugged show or VH1's Behind the Music of them?

I'm going to try and put up some of my favorite mainstream cover songs until I can't think of anymore. This is probably one of the best, IMO.

I hope you don't think Metallica's version is better than the original Bob Seeger version Synestro.

My favorite cover and one of the only ones that improved upon the original song.



And for a great song that not many of you will have heard of check out this tune. The band is Gogol Bordello. Love them. They are great for drinking music.

Gogol Bordello are one crazy outfit. I do like them a lot though. Haven't seen them live since 2005 though, a very entertaining live act.

A cover I like but a lot of people really hate is this:

The Lemonheads: Mrs. Robinson

Absolutely not!!! It\'s just one of my favorite covers, and a lot of that appeal comes from the fact that the original is incredible. I don\'t know that any cover is \"better\" than the original...except maybe....

You were kidding weren't you Synnie. I mean, the video didn't work but it looked like Alien Ant Farm, possibly one of the worst bands (and worst band names) EVER.

There are plenty of cover songs which are better than their originals - for instance Hendrix's version of Dylan's All Along The Watchtower, Cash's Version of NIN's Hurt.

No, I wasn't joking. Don't get me wrong here, it's the only song I know from the band, but I always liked it. If I had to choose between listening to Jackson's version or AAF, I'd pick the latter anyday. I thought about Cash's Hurt and you are right, the man owned that damned song. Forgot about Hendrix, again he takes ownership of the song. I tried several different links to the Smooth Criminal, sorry about that.

Yeah... "Watchtower" is my favorite Hendrix song and I'm a decent size Hendrix fan--but isn't everyone? Another good Hendrix "cover"--its live, so unsure if it counts--is Johnny Be Good.

As big of a Hendrix fan as I am, I am a much bigger fan of the older country. Johnny Cash did such a great job with "Hurt" probably because it meant so much more for a man at the end of his life than it did for someone that's young and basically on top of the world--when Downward Spiral came out. Though "Hurt" was the best song of Cash's Rick Rubin Era, those albums are loaded with great covers such as "Desperado" and especially Hank Williams Sr.'s "I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry." He also "covers" some of his own earlier stuff in those albums since he's not the same artist that he used to be.

Other of my favorite covers:
Nirvana's "The Man That Sold the World" (or am I wrong?)
Limp Bizkit's "Faith" (I REALLY liked their first CD, before they really became a rap band.)
Willie Nelson "Crazy" (does it count if its a song that you wrote?)
Willie Nelson "Georgia on My Mind"
Aerosmith "Come Together"
Chili Peppers' "Higher Ground"
Johnny Cash "It Ain't Me Babe"
The Byrds' "Mr. Tamborine Man"
George Thorogood "Move it on Over"
Allman Brothers "Statesboro Blues"
And I'm sure about 1000 more!

Financially, the best covers ever are probably virtually every song Elvis ever did, though. Oh, and half of every Kid Rock song.

Kid Rock hasn't been good since 1999 (before he became this "I want to be white trash" guy). I mean, have you heard Warrior? That shit screams GOP/military propaganda and the video is even worse (trust me, I had to see it before almost every movie in theatres for two months).

Yeah, I said financially... Meaning that he makes money nowadays by just taking background music from another artist's song and rearranging some of the lyrics. It's really sad because "Devil Without a Cause" was one of my favorite CDs of the 90's. Everything since has been utter crap.
