And In My Hour of Need,
I Truly Am Indeed,
Alone Again, Broccoli …

 

One of the ultimate good-time songs. Syrupy, schmaltzy, bubble-gum gooey and the like? Sure but what of it? Build Me Up Buttercup still manages to endure as a retro-cool song that has brought smiles to the masses. You shake your head in disagreement? Well let me put this out there. When was the last time David Johansen wasted time on a song of no musical merit? Yeah that would be never. Still, if your senses are somehow offended by this old, played-out standby then I suggest you take the day off and come back tomorrow. The rest of us will just relax and revel in the saccharine absurdity of it all.

THE CLASH of Cover Tunes

 

The David Johansen Group vs. Save Ferris vs. Twenty One Pilots
The David Johansen Group:

Save Ferris:

Save Ferris has informed me that this is not their cover song. Never a dull moment on CMI …

Twenty One Pilots:

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?!!?
