82: covers for GREAT fun...

Hi.
Today it's time for REALLY great covers!
Some hilarious(ly good), a few shamelessly bad.
Funny fact is that 2 of these songs became great hits
for Eric Burdon & the Animals...
Being a Thin Lizzy fan (way back in the days)
I only recognized the Sleepwalker workout
the moment they started singing the lyrics!
Excellent :-)
-
1. Britney Spears never sounded as good as this,
2. Kate Bush can wuther away as of now,
3. Frank Zappa (rest in peace) will smile,
4. for THIS we don't know exactly who to blame,
but most stuff from 1970 sounds good anyways,
5. James Brown knew it all along,
6. Neil Young IS (let's face it) an old man,
7. Abba should never reunite (God Forbid!),
8. Bennie Benjamin, Gloria Caldwell and Sol Marcus
want you to read THIS for full appreciation,
9. Barrett Strong & Norman Whitfield made lotsa
money writing songs like this,
10.and really, Thin Lizzy needs Phil Lynott (we dearly miss him)
-
1. Ahmet & Dweezil Zappa - Hit Me Baby One More Time (4:11)
2. Futureheads - Hounds Of Love (3:02)
3. J*Davey - Dirty Love (4:08)
4. Joseph - The House Of The Rising Sun (2:26)
5. Liquid Smoke - It's A Man's World (4:53)
6. Lizz Wright - Old Man (3:41)
7. Solal Feat. Melonie Cannon - Dancing Queen (3:40)
8. Place Of Skulls - Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood (4:40)
9. Savoy Brown - I Can't Get Next to You (6:39)
10. Sleepwalker - Don't Believe A Word (5:01)

hi wanted to show some love here cause your mixes are awfully great and groovy and people don't seem to feedback as you deserve. nevertheless you keep on diggin' with passion, dedication and above all impeccable taste. the visual material you provide is always cool too
i really enjoyed your wah wah, ghetto and billie joe series; actually almost all of your mixes stand up in a special section of my cd-cases (crystal-clear muji boxes). i've never heard anything by tjwhite before so it's a premiere i owe you
i'll be back with more praise and fanatism anytime soon
cheers

hi
left a feedback yesterday but blogger announced a problem...
wanted to show some love here as it seems people react pretty poorly to the amazing dedication and imagination you put in your mixes. almost all of your comps stand out in my heavy rotation cd cases (crystal clear muji boxes): wah-wah, ghetto, jungle, covers series and the great odes to billie joe... thanks for tjwhite too
keep on groovin'
a die-hard fan
