Music Tuesday - 9/2/08

Hope everyone had a great Labor Day weekend!

Last week I shared the CD I made for my music club and noticed that several of the songs were covers. I think covers are fun. A cover can either be a new, good interpretation of a song or completely cheesy like when Marilyn McCoo or Rick Dees would sing with the weekly guest on Solid Gold.

Here are a few of the former variety...

Bring It On Home To Me (mp3) - Spoon - Sam Cooke cover
Modern Girl (mp3) - Camera Obscura - Sheena Easton cover
Sick of Myself (mp3) - Ben Gibbard - Matthew Sweet Cover
The Gambler (mp3) - Mike Doughty - Kenny Rogers cover
Always On My Mind (mp3) - Iron & Wine - Willie Nelson cover
I Summon You (mp3) - The Watson Twins - Spoon cover
Sweet Child O' Mine (mp3) - Taken By Trees - Guns 'n Roses cover
Everywhere (mp3) - Vampire Weekend - Fleetwood Mac cover

Oh my word, I LOVED Solid Gold. I really did. Even then I knew it was terrible, but I couldn't help it. I was a moth to a flame.

Mrs. French beat me to it. . .but that's definitely Tom Jones, and not Rick Dees.

Rick Dees sang 'Disco Duck' and 'Eat My Shorts', by the way. :)
