Tonight’s ‘Funkalicious Friday’ is presented with my sincerest apologies to ‘K9K’ and ‘BD’…I’m not fit to hold your usb cables….
So in the spirit of filling in on someone else’s funkalicious time slot….and with full awareness of my own lack of funkaliciousness….tonight’s installment will be dedicated to cover songs.
Dylan wrote it, Jimi rocked it….
Garth Brooks covers Kiss’ ‘Hard Luck Woman’…in this version, Kiss backs him up…
And, hey, if country stars can cover rock tunes, then Live can cover Johnny Cash, right? “Walk the Line”…
You just KNEW there would be some Live in here, right?
Johnny Cash can give as good as he gets…here he covers the Nine Inch Nails song “Hurt”
I like this one a little more than i probably should….it’s the band Me First and the Gimme Gimmes covering “Rainbow Connection”. They also do an ass-kicking cover of “I Believe I Can Fly”, which I’ll save for another day…
You can’t not love the Shat, “Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds”
(If a person could be reincarnated as a cover song….as a cover song that was performed in the same space-time as the incaration he/she is being reincarnated from…then i would want to be this next song.)
Toad the Wet Sprocket covers “Ziggy Stardust”
Here, The Red Hot Chili Peppers (of whom I’m not fond) cover the Bee Gees (whom I love absolutely). “How Deep Is Your Love”
M.C. the Max covers Sublime’s “Santeria”
Well, I got the ‘Friday’ half of Funkalicious Friday….the ‘funk’ part i’m not the best source for. I hope i didnt spoil your weekend or anything 😉
