The Ipod is my favorite little invention in a long long time. And, its full of hundreds and hundreds of songs. I also love cover songs, some people take some classic songs and sometimes make them better. So, here's 13 of them I love.
1. How Soon is Now by Love Spit Love. This is a cover of an original song by Morrissey. The song was also featured in Charmed, where it became a real big hit. It is also one of the only songs I can not find to download to my Ipod.
2.Two Thousand Miles by Coldplay. Its a Christmas song and a cover from the Pretenders. But their is just something so haunting and brillant about the song, its the only Christmas song I listen to year round.
3.We Are Trying to Stay Alive-Wyclef Jean. A great cover of the Bee Gees Staying Alive. Its a hipped up version that still keeps the original feel.
4.Rocky Top by Love Seed Mama Jump. A classic Delaware cover band that brings back some really hazy memories. This is a cover song for the University of Tennessee band and I did not even know there were lyrics to this song.
5.Landslide by the Smashing Pumpkins-This is a Fleetwood Mac cover and the Smashing Pumpkins did a great job of allowing the haunting lyrics of this song to come through in their version.
6.Time After Time by Matchbox Twenty-Its odd to hear a cover of a song from the 1980's but this cover of a Cyndi Lauper song is great. Rob Thomas puts a great twist on it.
7.Supernatural by Live-This song is on the Sweet Relief II compilation CD in a tribute to Vic Chesnutt. I would not have known this was a cover song except for where I found it. Though I can't find it anywhere to share.
8.Turn the Page by Metallica-A cover of a Bob Seger song, though they make it sound even more raw then he did. The video is also very raw and may not be safe for the kiddies.
9.Daniel by Fuel. A cover that is totally different from the way it was presented by Elton John. Much rougher then the sweet piano version that Sir John did and it also makes an explanation behind the song much easier to grasp too.
10.Dancing Barefoot by U2 A cover of a Patti Smith song, though I did not know it was a Patti Smith song originally. Heard it first on the soundtrack for Threesome.
11.All Along the Watchtower by the Indigo Girls-A kickass live, rare cover of a Bob Dylan/Jimi Hendrix classic. Amy Ray gives a rough growl to the entire song and it sounds like those acoustic guitars are on fire.
12.Tiny Dancer by Dave Grohl of Foo Fighters. The greatest version of this song ever.
13.In Your Eyes by Jeffrey Gaines. An amazing cover of Peter Gabriel, though of course we would think its amazing, since it is Mrs Duck's and I's wedding song.
Well, there is the list, though it took me alot longer to put together then I thought it would. If anyone would like this list burned to a CD, I have all the songs but the first one, so just drop me a line and we will do some music swapping.
