OK, all folks of color please forgive me.

This is the white man's version of the famous Sir-Mix-Alot song.

I had never heard this before until a finalization I had about two weeks ago. The B&G requested it and had a copy available, which they gave me.

So, at another finalization I was joking around with the couple and played this song for them. THEY LIKED IT!

So, now I have a legal copy in my library.

I have another finalization tonight. I may bring it up.

The Gourds - Gin N Juice is great as well.

If you are a fan of strange and unusual covers check out coverville.com. It is an all covers podcast show that has some real gems on it. He updates weekly with new setlists and a short story about the covers. Some of the covers will blow your mind. It's one of my favorite things to listen to at work.

Keeping with the fish out of water theme, check out Paul Anka's "Rock Swings". The man who wrote "My Way" specifically for Frank does the inverse of all the pop & rock artists that have taken a stab at doing standards. He takes songs such as "Teen Spirit", "Eye Of The Tiger", and Van Halen's "Jump" and tries to make them his own. Paul does a decent job in this regard, but the real appeal of this CD for a DJ is the reaction a room full of guests will have when they realize one of their favorite songs has been given an after life only slightly more dignified than Muzak. Even better is when a party guest with far too much in the way of powers of observation approaches you to ask "Um, who's that singing Jump?" Priceless!!! -Z-

  1. "It's My Life" (original version by Bon Jovi)
  2. "True" (original version by Spandau Ballet)
  3. "Eye of the Tiger" (original version by Survivor)

  5. "Wonderwall" (original version by Oasis)
  6. "Black Hole Sun" (original version by Soundgarden)
  7. "It's a Sin" (original version by Pet Shop Boys)
  8. "Jump" (original version by Van Halen)
  9. "Smells Like Teen Spirit" (original version by Nirvana)
  10. "Hello" (original version by Lionel Richie)
  11. "Eyes Without a Face" (original version by Billy Idol)
  12. "The Lovecats" (original version by The Cure)
  13. "The Way You Make Me Feel" (original version by Michael Jackson)
  14. "Tears in Heaven" (original version by Eric Clapton)

We've got some great cover bands here in the Philly area that do the rounds of Irish Pubs and other bars. I've heard some really awesome Rock renditions of hip-hop songs such as "Wild Thing" and "The Humpty Dance". I wish I could find videos or recordings, but haven't been able to so far. If I find any, I'll put the link up.

Sounds like a version that might have been written by Peter, Paul & Mary back in the 60's! ... I guess I'm dating myself!

Well done!

While this one probably won't ever get used except to get a chuckle now and then among friends...check out James Taylor performing DMX' "Party Up"

:p

(warning: original DMX unedited lyrics)
Hey, Ken!

That's actually Joe Cumia impersonating James on that one. Joe's the older brother of Anthony Cumia, of Opie & Anthony fame. He makes his living in tribute bands (He's "The Edge" in U2 tribute band 2U.). It's actually funny WITH the bleeps!

BTW: Love Richard Cheese! Lounge Against the Machine FTW!
