Yesterday’s blog participant, DY’er Mak’er by Eek-a-Mouse, is now up and running via Dubbenmeister Blog Raido.  And I even acceded to correct the spelling of “Led Zeppelin”.

Since being advised that the cover of Hotel California attributed to NoFX in CMI’s November 13th blog was in fact not NoFX, CMI staff have been working tirelessly through the nights (and occasionally during the days as well) to resolve this obviously very important issue. Depending on the web source, the song in question has been attributed to Me Too & The Gimme Gimmes, NoFX and Real Big Fish. Yet, despite the obstacles created by ubiquitous disinformation, our research efforts were rewarded this afternoon as we discovered that the version in question was in fact the product of Ska DaddyZ with help from Chencha Berrinches. Dr. Arnold Plotnick, a man who has dedicated his life to felines and anything/everything to do with the song Hotel California, confirmed CMI’s conclusion late today.

Thus, sleep well tonight, my friends. The pages have been forever turned on this most confounding chapter in cover music history.

Broccoli For Miles And Miles And Miles And Miles And Miles … Oh Yeah!

Gadzooks this is a much covered song. Bands of every genre – rock, reggae, punk, ska, surf, flamenco, bluegrass, etc. – seem to gravitate to this tune. And interestingly enough, although I never cared for the original, I’ve enjoyed pretty much every cover I’ve heard. Go figure …

Ska DaddyZ with Chencha Berrinches:

Oh the disharmony! Much like Harlan County there are no neutrals here. Only one cover tune will live to play another day and it is your solemn responsibility to decide which one prevails. So tell me … Which Side Are You On?!!?

Also, keep in mind that if you should spontaneously self-actualize while playing a cover then you could – and probably should – nominate it for Top 10 (i.e. “Impeccable”) consideration.



Votes can be cast up to seven days from the day and time of the original post.
