Its Friday, so I am going to make this quick and dirty, the way Austin likes it:
You ever listen get excited about the alleged new pop hit of the year until your listening to your ipod and you realize the reason you find it catchy is because it is a cover/sample of a song you already have on your ipod? I am not against using samples, but I do get angry when you really don’t add anything new to the song. It wasn’t till recently found out that Crazytown’s Butterfly was a sample from a Red Hot Chili Peppers Song. I didn’t know I could think less of Shifty Shellshock.
Anyways, Mike was wondering what the best cover song ever was the other day. I am still trying to best his answer of “Twist and Shout.” Easy answers would be Elvis’ “Hound Dog” or Jimi’s “All Along the Watchtower,” but is there anything better?
If you want to hear some good covers and other covers that make you appreciate the originals so much more, check out Cover Me or Cover Lay Down.
