Comment:





75m34s. Arranged by genre
of the cover:


1-4 rock & pop
5-8 acoustic
9-10 metal & alternative
11 electronic
12-14 dance
15 soul
16 J-pop
17 a cappella
18-19 country & bluegrass
20 mixed genre within song
21 faux-Brazilian



Apocalyptic visions and the slow gruesome death of the guilty are
not normal fare for teenie-popper
Mandy Moore, but she throws everything she's got at it.

The other Moore, Thurston, is much less bold, as he sings the Karen Carpenter
bowdlerization ("I can hardly wait to be with you again")
instead of the original Bonnie Bramlett lyric
("...to sleep with you again").

The Cascada track was a huge radio hit, and the youth
of today are fascinated to learn that it is actually a cover of
a beautiful love song.

"Sure Dad. Whatever."

Travis Morrison was frontman of The Dismemberment Plan.

Many thanks to bingsy for #1, Michael Cook for #4, and sammyg123 for #13.

This looks tasty, I like that SY Carpenters cover and i'm familiar with the Shonen Knife pick too but little else, track 5 in particular intrigues me.

I love your Crazy Covers mixes Ed. Mandy Moore doing Senses..? If it's anything like her version of God Only Knows, that will leave me gobsmacked (although not in a good way!). Familiar with the SY, and the Cascada track is huge over here right now, altho I had no idea it was a cover. Didn't Maggie Reilly sing Moonlight Shadow?
I have to here this, as it all looks so intruiging, btw yr welcome re: tk 13...

Great-looking mix, I like the arrangement. That Ludacris cover is a song for certain moods... either I love it or it drives me insane.

This is very cool and has a lot of unusual stuff - always good to see! I, too, am expressing interest in that Mandy Moore cover, I have to say...love the Sonic Youth choice too! Nice.

Excellent idea. I must confess I'm only familiar with a handful of these covers but I like the sound of quite a few of them. I can think of a few other examples of this kind of thing. Food for thought.

I couldn't believe it, but Mandy Moore's cover is actually pretty solid.
