Don't You Ever Wonder?

Now this is a cover I can get behind.

Sign of The Times

Lincoln's latest luxury vehicle commercial features an MTV esque pop cover of Peter Schilling's Major Tom. I loved that song so much.

Just the other day, my coworker was listening to Mariah Carey's cover of Foreigner's I Want to Know What Love Is and she had no idea it was a cover. That and another cover of Tears for Fears' Mad World. She had no idea who either were. I suppose it's no different than when I was a kid and Guns and Roses covered Bob Dylan but boy does it make me feel a little old.

I Can Go For That!

Speaking of guilty pleasures, I just came across this hilarious interview between Of Montreal's Kevin Barnes and Hall & Oates. Check it out here.

A cool friend of mine introduced me to The Bird and The Bee [thanks super cool friend!] and apparently they also consider Hall & Oates to be guilty pleasures and are releasing an album of cover songs called appropriately Guilty Pleasures Volume I.

Ever just need to listen to a little Christopher Cross and Neil Diamond to get you through the day? I totally want Neil Diamond's slick polyester shirts.

My Couch is Fly Paper. I'm the Fly.

Having just moved into my new apartment, the boxes are breeding like rabbits and I have zero energy to do anything about it.

Hope I'm not turning into The Fly.

Lottery or Cockroach?

I'm notorious for misunderstanding music lyrics. For example, I thought Til Tuesdays song "Voices Carry" sang "Ooh hush, keep it downtown this is Carry" and Dream Academy's "Life in a Northern Town" was instead of "life in a northern town", "laughing along"

Bjork is one of those core musicians for me though I find her lyrics notoriously indecipherable. Her song "Crying" off of Debut is no different. For years I thought she sang the following:

Misheard Lyrics:

Crank the shiny tune!
Crank! I can feel you.
Crank the shiny tune!
Crank! Cuz I care.

Actual Lyrics:
Crying cuz I need you.
Crying I can feel you.
Crying cuz I need you.
Crying cuz I care.
