I’m not a huge fan of Halloween, but I am a big fan of songs about satan, witches, werewolves, mummies, and other spooky things.

Justin’s Playlist III – Favorite Cover Songs

These are some of my favorite songs re-imagined  by  my favorite artists.  Some songs are done in completely new ways, like Brazilian Seu Jorge’s(aka Knockout Ned from City of God) acoustic cover of Bowie’s, “Starman.” Other songs are loving homages to the original, like Edmontonian Krystle Dos Santos‘ cover of Nina Simone’s, “Ain’t Got No.” I had no idea some songs even existed until contemporary artists covered them: Nirvana’s cover of Bowie’s “The Man who sold the world.”

Of course, how could a list of cover songs not include a cover of Cohen’s Hallelujah? Rufus Wainwright, K.D. Lang, and of course Jeff Buckley all do great versions, but, I decided to include a less popular Cohen song: “Famous Blue Raincoat,” as covered by Hayden.

Ryan’s Playlist III – Favorite Cover Songs

Well after an extremely humbling (and undeserved) defeat in week 2, I am ambitious to switch things up for this week.  Gone are the days of sappy love ballads and crowd pleasers…this weeks theme is our favorite cover songs!  I didn’t really have any focus coming in to this week but I knew there was a few amazing songs that I wanted to include (Dead Flowers, Tyrone, Don’t Look Back) and some cool bands and artists (Fishbone, Peter Tosh, MIA).

In the end, what you get is everything from heroine rock (who doesn’t love the Big Lebowski?) to party anthems (Jump on It) to one of the best Queen covers of all time…in all it’s angry glory.  If Paul Anka isn’t your cup of tea or you are easily offended by Nirvana covers, don’t skip to the end because My Morning Jacket’s cover at the end of it all is a real treat.  Enjoy…or don’t, I’m just here for the free food!
