Just my favorite covers thrown into a playlist and arranged into something aesthetically pleasing. Of particular note are Radiohead doing an awesome version of a James Bond tune, the Minibosses giving the Metroid theme a crunchy rock spin, and a very cool version of Brazil which follows a listener to several different clubs, each featuring a different band doing a different spin on the tune. Oh yes, and Wesley Willis tearing several new corn-chutes in Girls On Film. Asterisked titles are live cuts.


Nice. Have you heard Ozma's cover of the "Tetris" theme? It's rockin'!

Ooh! No, I have not. But I like Ozma, and I like Tetris, so it looks as though I have something new to seek out. Gracias!

Dude, nice one with "Metroid." That cover's great. Minibosses! Also, the Esquivel "Brazil" sounds fascinating, I should check that out.
