Dude's done a bunch of these but this was the first I heard. I didn't know I needed this but this is my new fave playlist.

A seasonally appropriate cover.

He managed to make a jazz arrangement of the Lavender Town theme and there's even lyrics.

Did everyone else run out of music to listen to?


Anyways, here's some spectacular samba.

I'm dancing to this instead of getting ready for bed.

I know some of you all won't give a single damn about this because it's an arrangement of video game music, but Jet Force Gemini holds a special place in my heart for all of the hours I spent playing it as a young teen. So, this cover means a lot to me. Being that it's arranged by Sam Dillard (Beyond the Glass, Chrono Trigger 600 AD Symphony: Yearning Hope, Promise Of Mended Pieces, etc) makes it even better.

This one, The Edge Calls Me, Big Bug Funk, and World Destroyer (Instrumental) are my favorite tracks from the album OCReMix released. Big Bug Funk really took me off guard because it's a military march with a funky bass line.

My all time favorite cover is Eddies Hazel's version of California Dreaming, by The Mamas and the Papas.

Not gonna lie, I don't expect this choice to make me friends, but it is one of my favs:

Scissor Sisters - Comfortably Numb

(There was at one point a video where the band were swimming, but it seems to have been pulled.)  It might be that I actually heard it before the original.  And while I'm making myself reviled, what the hell:

Elvis Presley - Yesterday/Hey Jude

(I kind of wish there were a better version, but it is what it is.)  What can I say?  I have a soft spot for the mashup, especially considering that we know, and he knew then, that this was an Elvis well past his prime.  Anyway, perhaps as a palette cleanser, something perhaps a bit less blasphemous:

Christopher Lee - My Way

...yeah, this one I don't feel quite so compelled to justify.

Even as someone who loathes that cover of Comfortably Numb, it is absolutely what I think a cover should be about - radically altering the original while still retaining enough of it to not make it pointless to cover it. It's genius.

Elvis on the other hand, to quote my father, 'loved covering his favourite songs and ruining them'

The Comfortably Numb cover is the only one of those three to stand on its merits. The other two just don't work IMO.
