    Been borrowing a bunch of music from Hoopla recently. After a long hiatus Hootie and the Blowfish got back together for an album in '19 (Darius had been solo and leaning towards country for quite a few years). Some good stuff, pretty much sounds like Hootie did 25 years ago (has it seriously been that long?!).

    Also been listening to a greatest hits collection from Dokken (somehow missing "Heaven Sent"--what?!). They've got a bunch of jams.

    I want to know what y'all think about this:

    A full symphony orchestra and choir, with a knockout blonde singer, playing The Cure classic "Friday, I'm in Love"

    Interesting, very different take on it. Check out this cover of it.

    I don't know the original song. This was pretty well done, but to me...the flutes were shrill and at times her voice seemed overpowered by the back up and orchestra.
    At least someone, somewhere, is laughing.

    I like the one seacatfan posted, her voice has a bit of melancholy in it that I think fits the original better (for me). Between the orchestration and the happy voices in the other, it felt too much like something from a Disney movie (and that's like the polar opposite of The Cure to me haha).

    I can't stop listening to covers on You Tube. I find it particularly interesting to see hard rock/metal bands take on hit pop songs and add their spin to it. When you add screeching guitars, bashing the hell out of the drums and some edge to the vocals, makes it seem like the song was always meant to sound that way. This band isn't in my regular rotation but they did a good job w/ this Gaga song.

    A band I fairly recently stumbled onto. This was a massive hit for Billie Eilish. I never really got it, song seemed just okay to me. This version adds a lot of vitality to it. The screams/growls really work here.

    This band is probably my favorite of the youtubers in this genre. They are a bit hit and miss but I like most of their stuff. I think they have an album of originals coming out soon, it will be interesting to see how that turns out. They're just kids, like around 18 or 19, but I think they've been together for almost 10 years already. They have just a ton of songs, they download something weekly, been doing it for years. Around the holidays they add in some Christmas themed stuff.

    Audra has a fairly mellow voice but she cuts loose a bit more on this one, I think she kills it.




    One more

    Another I discovered later than some of the others. Unfortunately they don't release songs anymore, all their you tube content is gamer related currently. Sabrina is a decent vocal mimic, she sounds somewhat like the original singer in many of their songs, while blending it into a different context.

    Halocene is another prolific producer of content. Addie can also mimic other vocalists quite well. They and First to Eleven cover a lot of the same songs. Their source material is all over the place, I found they do some really interesting Ellie Goulding covers.

    Whoa! I'm used to collabs between a lot of these you tubers (there's a bunch of cross pollination w/ Halocene, First to Eleven, Violet Orlandi and Lauren Babic). But this is like worlds colliding. Violet has an amazing voice. She's always dead serious. Here she's teaming up w/ Norwegian madman Leo Moracchioli, who does a bunch of very tongue in cheek, goofy parodies of songs. She's getting into his playful spirit on this Roxette song. This is brand new, first time I've seen it. W/ Leo, you always have to stick around for the outros. Also his puppets are awesome, they show up in many of his videos.

    Covers? I think this one of the best ever made. Lady Gaga does "What's Up" better than Four Non-Blondes. A lot better.

    Of course, Lady Gaga was classically voice trained from like 7 years old. She is a real musician and it shows. I have always found this song hauntingly beautiful and she makes it more so.

    And I put this here bc I saw an interview of Sting a while back and they asked him if there were any songs he wish he wrote, he went through Satisfaction, Like A rolling stone, some others and then said "Blur, Girls and Boys" - which I'd never heard of.

    yes, it kicks a lot of ass

    Smile A Fun Exercise.

    A college buddy and I were shooting the breeze the other day and the subject of favorite records / songs came up. As a result we agreed to get together before the 2/27 Zags game and reveal our Top Ten Albums & Top 25 Songs, our personal, very subjective GOAT list of music. We thought it would be fun to see (after 55+ years of listening to the radio, records, grocery store muzak. . .) where our tastes intersected.

    According to iTunes, I have over 7,000 songs, 1563, albums, 806 artists, and 59 genres in my music library. Years ago I had a gizmo that plugged into a turntable or cassette deck (and into a computer) which allowed me to digitize a major portion of my vinyl and cassette collection so the numbers above reflect most of the music I’ve enjoyed through the years.

    When I was 6, my 16 year old sister washed the dishes and I dried them; we always had a “Top 40” AM radio station going in the kitchen. This would have been 1963, so at a formative age, I was exposed to the Motown Sound, the early Beatles, British Bands, and others. Fast forward a bit: I was introduced to the Allman Brothers my freshman year at GU, Commander Cody and Earth Wind and Fire my sophomore year and so on. My daughter is to blame for my appreciation of Florence & The Machine. . .

    Narrowing down all those tunes (and the memories that went with them) to just 25 is a bit of a challenge. I suspect it is also “frame of mind” dependent. Anyway, I thought I would share the results with friends who were there for some of these tunes at one time or another. And, for the record, the first album I ever bought was Elton John’s “Honky Chateau,” which I eventually owned on 8 track, cassette, and CD. . .

    Cheers ! #StaySafe

    Sorry if I overdid it on the covers. This is an original. Strange band name but I like the song.
