One of my favorites from Madness. My Girl appeared on their first album, One Step Beyond, which became a standard of the British ska revivalist movement. When My Girl was spun- off as a single in December, 1979, it reached Number Three in the U.K. charts

Tracy Ullman:

Is there anything Tracy Ullman cannot do? Probably, I guess, right?

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?!!?

Broccoli Fields Forever ...

Broccoli Fields Forever …

In deference to the recent anniversary of the 9-11 tragedy I chose the greatest song John Lennon ever penned to launch Cover Me Impressed. Needless to say it is beyond disheartening that 42 years after this brilliant plea for peace was introduced it is as pertinent today as the day it was written.

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.
