Fallout New Vegas soundtrack. I use it to help me get to sleep. And when I'm busy pretending to be in a dead world, and nobody else exists.

"This song performed by this singer (it's a cover) is really high on my list this week...."
I don't like the song in it's original/radio version. But this, I do kind of like. The singer, the performance, etc...

I think a lot of people underestimate what goes into a truly great cover; which, I feel, is very much about that fine balance of simply interpreting the song. Being, at once, both authentically oneself and also equally true to the piece. As opposed to "re-making" or "re-interpreting." Or, alternatively, trying to sound like someone else.

That's a great point, and I think that's one of the things I love most about that video (besides the fact that I enjoy her voice). I had never heard the song before I heard her sing it, and then I heard the original on the radio earlier this week and was completely disappointed.

Emily took that song and made it something unique to herself without losing the essence of it, and that's an amazing thing.

leonard.bass,
Continuing the trend of my music tastes being all over the place, and in celebration of the binge drinking I'm going to be getting into tonight, here's this:

Been really in need of cello music recently (it always gets me right at the soul) so I've been listening to zoe keating again. I love what people can do with one instrument and some tech.

For good examples of her work see the path or Tetrishead.

But I kind of like the way this particular guy does it. For a number of songs now. I also like how it's sort of instructive for the young people who haven't quite been there yet, just as far as what it's really supposed to feel like:

So the flaming lips have done a "Sgt peppers lonely hearts club band" cover album called with a little help from my fwends.

It's hard to decide how I feel about it after listening, it's certainly not an atrocious album but it just seems wrong to cover an album that was already so perfect.

Oh man, Eluveitie! Folk metal is delightful; there's a ton of it, and a lot of variety within the genre. So it goes with metal, generally. Ensiferum is also a pretty solid folk metal band:

can't lie, she could be singing the fraggle rock theme tune and i would have been so sold. Good find:p

on the second,(liked it too) it put me to mind of a metal cover of a proper old Mike Oldfield track.
