No, not the things on the bed - when your bands/artists cover other artists' tunes.

Some I like:

(Miss you JC.)




(been a JT fan since late 70s. He was a heroin addict in his teens, narcotics later, and he cleaned up to become an amazing artist. THAT to me is inspirational.)




(I think I prefer this version to Jimmy's.)


(big fan of Tony Thompson's drum work.)




(and of course, you couldn't go an hour in the 70s without hearing this on the radio.)

NOFX's Fat Mike has a side project called Me First And The Gimme Gimmes.

They only do covers. I'm only really familiar with the earlier albums. The first few at least were themed albums... i.e. Me First And The Gimme Gimmes Blow In The Wind is all covers of early 60s rock and folk classics, while Me First And The Gimme Gimmes Are A Drag is all showtunes.

I don't love everything they've done, but i hate none of it and some of it i sorta love. Some times i like versions of their songs whose originals i never really cared for. Other times i feel like they fall short of the mark of the original. Here are a couple i like...

I've enjoyed most of The Cure's music for about as long as i can remember hearing it. There was one song which i didn't particularly care for, though, and it was one of their commercially successful ones, too. Many years later i attained a Dinosaur Jr. cassette which had a brilliant cover version; it was so danged good that i actually learned to appreciate the original.

some Gloria Jones trivia
she was the girlfriend of Marc Bolan of T-Rex fame and she was driving the car that he was killed in.
