The Covered Sound

Yet another installment in my sort of completely random and without any sort of repeated schedule edition of covered songs! I could use this area to write a bunch of nonsense about several bands that you already know, doing several versions of songs by more bands that you already know -- but guess what? I respect you more than that, dear reader. I know that you've got Google and if you were wanting to do further research on whether Elliott was assassinated by people with great interest in whether or not he did a better version of Willie than Willie can do or not, then you can dig it up. You don't need my watchful hand to steer you towards everything on this ever-revolving huge blue rock, now do ya? No -- you just need me to lend a hand here and there on important matters of taste. Do I dictate excellence? Not really, but as long as I can keep you slightly interested while you're stealing music "discovering" new bands, then I must be doing an alright job.

In other news, I was called an Emo-Boy by a girl with a fake british accent last night while accidently attending the strangest "salsa" night that I've ever been to. Lucky for you ladies, I can count the number of salsa nights I've been tricked into attending on one hand, but I can still slay a damn MERENGUE while I count em! Yaaaaaaaah, take that to the bank. The girl with the fake british accent dropped me her digits, but I'm only going to use them to tease her about her accent. Or maybe take her out for some well deserved face-to-face riddlin'.

Yow -- this is starting to sound like a blog. Maybe I am an emo-boy? If I am then I'm one with some fancy feet on the salsa-beats.
In the interest of full disclosure, I know that at least one of the songs above came from a great blog, Everybody Cares, Everybody Understands. Stop by there if you are interested in reading about music or dancing about architecture.

Also, stay tuned for Maine in our great journey through the 'fiddy, kids.

Hehe...thanks for the full disclosure - I've posted at least five of those songs in the past! :)

That's perfectly okay though, because good music is meant to be spread around and I'm glad to see you doing your part. Not only that, but I'm a loyal reader of your site as well...
