A little Sunday playlist


It's Sunday and I should be devoting my day to my mountains of homework, but instead I'm blogging. Go fig.


I'm a big fan of covers, on my bed and in music. A good cover, in my opinion, is one that improves upon the original song or at least brings something new to it. It is my dream to one day form a cover band that performs covers of famous covers. This band will be called Duvet. Some of my favorite covers include:


1.
When You Were Mine, as covered by Tegan and Sara
2.
Beautiful, as covered by Clem Snide
3.
Umbrella, as covered by Scott Simons
4.
Hurt, as covered by Johnny Cash
5. You Know I'm No Good, as covered by Arctic Monkeys
6.
Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow, as covered by Amy Winehouse
7. Melt With You, as covered by Nouvelle Vague
8. Que Sera Sera, as covered by Pink Martini
9. Perhaps, Perhaps, Perhaps, as covered by Cake
10.
Careless Whisper, as covered by Rufus Wainwright and Ben Folds

If you also are avoiding your homework, I encourage you to, as Buckwheat would say, take a wisten!

Um, I think someone else came up with the idea for "Duvet" and he happens to read this blog!

Busted! You're totally right. I guess you could say I'm "covering" your original idea....

If anyone needs evidence that Devo was just about the greatest band in history, look at how they took a really mediocre Rolling Stones song—"(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction"—and remade it into the most genius thing ever.

You know who else made "Satisfaction" awesome? Francis Ford Coppola, Apocalypse Now.

This may be my favorite thing you've ever said, er...written.
