May 2010: Mixed Tape - Covers

So... I am a little late with my May Mixed Tape post... I am blaming Maria & The Diamonds who distracted me for two weeks listening non-stop to her new album... go get it already.

May's Mixed tape is a collection of covers, which started because last month I fell in love with Florence & The Machine's Cover of  Robert Palmer's, Addicted to Love.   Sadly, I soon discovered that it was an import and not yet available in the US (at least not in the download-able format).   Listen to it here -

You can also listen to a impromptu remake of Borderline...

But, I didn't let the Florence and The Machine debacle derail my plans... I continued the quest for covers.   Lucky, I stumbled across the Bird and the Bee's - Remake of the Masters Volume I (Tribute to Daryl Hall and John Oates).   Now I am not sure if I would call Hall and Oates the Masters but I do love Private Eyes (probably because of the incessant clapping) and I will admit, I had a hard time choosing which song to include.   In the end I chose Maneater, of course.   I am also excited about the Volume I implication that there is more to come.  I personally hope that they do Def Leppard...Ooooh or how about Loverboy.   Go Inara... I love the children of the 80's, re-working all of the muck we had to listen to as teens so we can now play it during dinner parties.

One other delight... AC Newman's A-Ha cover.
