Listening Post: Cover Edition
Two truly inspired covers from unexpected places.
First up, I went looking for Elwood's ultra-cool hip-hop version of Gordon Lightfoot's Sundown, and lo and behold what did I find but a homemade video that someone had put together using clips from my beloved Firefly. Not really the best editing job, but who cares?
Next, I have to admit that I actually like Paramore -- and that I kind of have a crush on Haley Williams (which officially makes me that really creepy guy).
Here's a video composite set to the band's surprisingly good cover of one of my all-time favorite songs: Failure's Stuck on You.
