Whitney Houston:


THE CLASH of Cover Tunes


David Byrne vs. Alvin & The Chipmonks


David Byrne:

Alvin & The Chipmonks (with significant input from The Chipettes):


Oh the disharmony! Much like Harlan County there are no neutrals here. It is your solemn responsibility to decide which cover song prevails. In other words … Which Side Are You On?!!?

Unrelated But Not Without Ample Merit


You Can Read All About it in the Sunday Papers:

Flying is so much fun! Les Price, a 518-pound Brit, was recently forced to pay for two airplane seats to account for his extra heft, only to discover upon boarding the plane that the seats were not side-by-side! “One was in row 17 and the other in row 19,” said Mr. Price, 43. Nice!

    I waited an eternity for the return of covermeimpressed for THIS?!?! If it were a song by dogs for dogs then I could understand, as the lyric goes, wanting to be in heat with somebody. But it’s not, and thus has absolutely no redeeming value. I think Me First and the Gimme Gimmes might be the only folks who could even make this listenable, But just to be safe, Dubbs, don’t do this again.

      Whoa Zaner, I give you David Byrne & full orchestra playing the most unlikely of songs and I get this reaction?!!? Sheesh, this my friend, is cover song gold…

    Alvin etal’s delivery is pitch perfect but David Byrne is indomitable. That guy could croon “Billy Don’t be a Hero” with pleasurable zeal. Book it, Danno!
