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.

ah yes, aged by music. why does that particular thing sting so much? the day when i come across some young one, listening to a cover of bjork or radiohead unknowingly, will be the day i cry for music.
