run for cover!
Ok, kiddies. Time to move on to something fun. I've decided that seething with animosity is not something I can do on a full-time basis. It's break time!
I've been listening to my MP3 collection at work today, skimming through most of the songs that didn't go where my mood wanted to. Then I hit the folder with my cover songs.
There are an awful lot of versions of How Soon is Now and I think I have them all. (For my money, Quicksand does the best version). Did you know that Great White does a cover of the Cult's Love Removal Machine? I've got Earth Crisis doing Cream's Sunshine of Your Love, Mr. Bungle (notorious for cover versions) crooning Hit Me Baby, One More Time, and Helloween doing a fanastic version of Faith No More's From out of Nowhere.
In fact, this whole CD I'm listening to is nothing but cover songs. It's an obsession of mine.
However, this cd is old and and I need more songs.
You know what to do, fill in the comments1 with your favorite cover songs and I'll track down the mp3s and get them on to a cd so I can stop listening to Offspring's version of AFI's2 Total Immortal because it really sucks.3
1 Please do not include any Me First and the Gimme Gimme songs, as all they do is covers and I have every one of them.
2 Just a small note of interest (or not) that when this site started two years ago, it was called A Fire Inside and named partially for the band AFI.
3I am going to mark up your comments. Hope you don't mind. I'm just going to put a little note in the comment if I have the song already so no one else repeats the suggestion. And maybe add a comment or two.
Now you can proceed.
