It's A Sin

Jump
Smells Like Teen Spirit
Hello
Eyes Without A Face
Lovecats
The Way You Make Me Feel

This is profoundly sick and wrong, and of course I love it. Right now I'm listening to his cover of Jump, and I'm surprised at how well it works. Smells Like Teen Spirit is just... well, the language lacks words.

Eyes Without A Face works really well. Didn't like Everybody Hurts, or the other one I tried. Didn't try Jump or Smells Like Teen Spirit.

Why am I not surprised that you knew this?

I truly hate to disappoint you, but your post alerted me to this ... interesting piece of work.

Ah, OK.

I actually sort of recommend Teen Spirit.

Nah. Swing versions of rock songs.

Swing? Not, like, lounge or, dunno, big band?

(I admit to not knowing swing from ... well, anything. But Anka doesn't strike me as what I might think of if thinking of swing.)

Oh, crap, that is good. This is scarier than the country version of The Wall.

Hah. I am clearly a style/taste guru - I got this months ago. I heard Teen Spirit on the radio one day and was drawn to the album like the proverbial moth-flame deal. You know it's bad for you you but you just have to have it.

I think I'm still appalled by the whole concept, but I listen to it anyway.

Fortunately I'm at a golden age: old enough to have taste lapses attributed to incipient senility but with kids young enough that they haven't formed their own exclusive musical taste yet.

I heard "Eyes" months ago too and thought it wasn't too bad. "It's My Life" just scares me though.

Of course, I was just reminded of Hayseed Dixie's covers the other day and haven't quite recovered yet.

If you like more humorous lounge covers of rock music, check out Richard Cheese's stuff. Or, if you like strangely disturbing covers, Tori Amos' cover of the Eminem song "Bonnie & Clyde" is quite good.

You might also like Lounge-A-Palooza. Though I find the album uneven, it has enough that's worthwhile for me to mention it, and I really enjoy Steve and Eydie's rendition of Black Hole Sun.

Thanx! This is too awesome. I also vote for Luther Wright and the Wrongs rebuild the wall.

I've been wanting to do an a capella multi-harmony set called "Show me the metal" which would be show tune covers of heavy metal songs.

I figured the way to follow it up would be to get a heavy metal band together and cover show tunes.
