Good Covers, Part Deux.

Ally posted her favorite covers yesterday, so I figured I would put mine up, too, because I am a copycat. Mine are a little on the retro side, but hey, that's just how I roll, so deal with it.

*Sixpence None the Richer - Don't Dream It's Over

I have loved this song ever since I was a kid and Crowded House was singing it. Who doesn't love this song? No one I personally know, except for that hippie I dated that one time.

*Youth Group - Forever Young

Wasn't this song in one of those cheesy movies like Napoleon Dynamite or something? I thought I remember hearing it there. Either way, this band is the poo doo dong and they're going to be at the EARL on March 22nd, so add it to your calendars. You will want to check them out further.

*Pyogenesis - Africa

I used to listen to this song a lot when I was frequenting the gym. It's a great mix of rock and dance to the tune of that lovely 80s track we all loved long ago.

*Snowden - Time of the Season

Probably one of the best covers of this Zombies song that I've heard, and I've heard a lot. This song kicks ass originally, and Snowden keeps it real.

*The Academy Is... - Working Class Hero

Ally did a John Lennon song, so I am, too. William Beckett is my super not-so-secret crush, and I loooove hearing him sing this. He does a good job on it. Of course, I find it ironic that he probably really has no idea what it's like to be a working class hero, but whatever. He's still hot.

And lastly, a special treat for you all! This is what happens when people leave things on my computer...they become mine and then I share them with you good people. This last song is actually a spoof cover of a local band's single, "Tokyo" by Modern Society. I watched the whole thing get produced, and I think the final product is good for a laugh or five. How could I ever keep it to myself? I can't. It's a song about MySpace and how dumb it really is, and part of it makes fun of the band. You're going to want to click on the link and download this gem so you can play it for all your friends and they'll suddenly think you're cooler than you really are.

Dueling Assholes - Cameltokyo

And, thanks for playing.

This weekend, be sure to hit the Oysterfest down at the Steamhouse Lounge. I'm going on Saturday to see Rantings of Eva and Rouletta. I need to be intoxicated. Come hang out and do that with me. PS - I hate oysters.

After that, the Bridges are playing Smith's with Tim Brantley. Word.
