I warmed to this version. At first I thought the plucking too fast for the song, but as they warm up so did I. Cool. Oh and there’s blood on the moon and water on Mars.
An excellent version of this They Might Be Giants song. cpickettrun does ample justice with his honey voice and his masterful guitar. He fills the song out and gives it a big full sound. Love it.
A cover that contains the fun and silliness of the original. It’s deelovely! The male singer has a great voice too. He rocks the 3d Glasses just like the tenth Doctor!!!
And after you’ve watched this, see if you can find their version of Bohemian Rhapsody.
Ok. Be patient. I wanted to capture a “Four Seasons in One Day” by Crowded House cover. I came across lots. Lots and lots. So then I thought – I know! I’ll go for four covers of different types. Four Seasons, Four Covers! Brilliant right? I can’t equate them to the actual seasons. But they are sufficiently different that they stand out from each other.
You can choose to watch one, two or all of them. Or not.
The first one is posted by Dylan O’Donnell and features himself on guitar and his friend Anna on violin. A lovely pairing and a beautiful rendition.
This second is included for some local flavour. The choir, Ex Gracia, is from my neck of the woods. Here they are performing at the Blackheath Choir Festival last year. While it’s not a perfect version, the harmonies are occasionally spot on and lovely to listen to.
Moving from the Blue Mountains to more foreign climes, this next version is in German. Cleuso turn this song into a duet. The two singers are great and it’s good to hear it in German language. Fortunately it loses none of its beauty in translation.
Finally, from the sublime to the ridiculous. Disco Duck does a good effort at mangling this lovely song. It’s a hoot, or a quack.
the cover is evocative but what holds me is the song and the singer. A rich beautiful voice and a lovey voice adds a great mystery to the book. I’m not sure if the video is just to highlight the song or if it is the actual trailer. Either way I was enchanted by the audio. A very simple yet effective approach.

You might be forgiven thinking this was Saturday, but these lovely ladies were featured on “Spicks and Specks” last night. I told my wife I was going to post their version of Psycho-Killer, but my wife asked for Highway to Hell. Unfortunately I couldn’t find the one performed on Spicks and Specks. But there is this one… A lovely example of Australian deadpan humour.
