Covering up for the lack of real posts

There are some topics that just never grow stale. What makes the perfect cover version?

So, with a little help from YouTube, five personal favourites for the weekend…

Tainted Love

Comfortably Numb

Money, That’s What I Want

It’s My Party (and I’ll cry if I want to)

Walk On By

What about yours?

(Oh yeah, a holiday bonus: Total Eclipse of the Heart. This one’s all about the performance… and it makes me cry every time.)

    Mine is also Tainted Love. But Coil’s version, which is a cover of the Soft Cell version as far as I can tell.

    Oh — and one of my fave covers. Really. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nFEhdlAes00

    Also (not procrastinating, me!) Try the Kiki and Herb “Total Eclipse” … The Westlife one makes me so glad they never really hit it big in the states — I know so many adolescent girls who would have been soooo into them!
