The Futureheads cover Kate Bush on Hounds of Love. Of special consideration on this video are the puppies that make an appearence. But sadly, no Mr. Chips.
Against: A cover of Thunder Road by Kids, Incorporated. Who thought this was a good idea? And yes, that is apparently Martika of Toy Soldiers fame.
No link on this one, but on her most recent album, Dar Williams thought it a good idea to cover Pink Floyd's Comfortably Numb. And it's bad. Really bad.
So debate. Any big ones to share here? If we ban covers we miss out on Jeff Buckley's Hallelujah and Hendrix's Watchtower but we spare ourselves from countless abuses of Louis Armstrong's classic Wonderful World.
For example, I learned that Further Seems Forever did a cover of *NSync's Bye Bye Bye
An original song by Further Seems Forever, New Year's Project, was covered by Dashboard Confessional, who covered Weezer's Jamie. Another song by Weezer, Say It Ain't So, was covered by Further Seems Forever......good Lord, I could spend hours here.
