My highly non-conforming friend, Whisky Prajer, is snake-oiling (Come one, come all!) the Flaming Lips cover of Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon.
Blasphemous! Unheard of! Disfiguration!
Well, sometimes...sometimes such redos are surprisingly good. Most often the results send me running for a swig of that disgusting pink cement-in-a-bottle.
I haven't partaken of WP's new found musical treasure, but I did do some sleuthing myself to discover more weirdness (and no, nary a cat carcass to be found...yet).
First, the Good Covers category:
Ray Lamontagne's version of "Crazy" (Gnarls Barkley)
The video embed was disabled, but I LOVE Bryan Adams' cover of Dionne Warwick's "Walk On By":
Click here to hear!
Yee Haw! The Nashville Superpickers do Eagles Better! "Hotel California" with a little pickin' and a grinnin'(the intro is misleading, wait for the good stuff to start):
And though I be a Beatles purist, I rather dig gODHEAD doing "Eleanor Rigby""
Ah, yes, how about a south of the Mason/Dixon twist on some Aerosmith's "Walk This Way" courtesy of the Hayseed Dixie:
Now for the PEPTO covers:
Maybe because I just don't like him, Ozzy Osbourne's rendition of "Sunshine of Your Love" - gets a yech from me:
Double YECH! Sid Vicious' butchering of Sinatra's "My Way":
How about a nice giggle? Or blech, take your best shot, Shat! Elton John's "Rocket Man" like you've never heard before:
Excuse me, while I kiss this guy...off to make chili! It's snowing here in Cowtown! Hell hath froze over?
