Cover Me Up...

As I wait for the guests to arrive at my alcoholic fruit smoothie party (any excuse - and i always get ready way to early!), I thought i would dig through the archives and post some more cover versions for you all. Some are from the live lounge ~ as before ~ but some are from this great music site called Stripped. Check it out - the artists on it do acoustic versions of their recent hits as well as a cover version. It has everyone from Carrie Underwood to John Legend on it :) Oh! And check back tomorrow for photos and music from tonights "shindig"...

    Knock one back for me, then give that cute boyfriend o' yers a snog.

    Great covers! Listening the Editors/"Feel Good" now. Corinne's is good, too. The Jose one is sad :*(

    I always felt that there was an hint, just a hint, of mockery involved in the construction of these covers at the Live Lounge. They seem to suggest 'i wouldnt usually do this dirge' or 'this is above us, look how we write better songs'. or even worse 'its all so ironic'.

    Maybe its just me!

    i think that definitely was the case with the arctic monkeys doing girls aloud, but when Natasha Bedingfield for example, covered Keane, she said she did it cos it was one of her favourite tracks of recent times, so i think it may depend on the artist. I love the live lounge though :) Mocking or not!!

    I LOVED The Frames doing Britney's Everytime ... Was that on Live Lounge also?

    Also, what exactly is Live Lounge? What is Stripped? These are things I need to know!

    aaah joshua (said in the way rachel would say tate donovans character on friends!) Stripped is a web music site that does sets every tuesday with artists who do 3-4 of their own songs in an acoustic setting and a cover version. You can check it out at www.strippedmusic.com ...

    Live Lounge is part of a british radio show based on a similar premis - artists come into the studio, do a live acoustic version of their own song, then a cover version - sometimes "ironic" sometimes cos they love it :) check out www.bbc.co.uk/radio1 and look for dj jo whiley :)

    Must check out the frames track. i adore people doing Britney! (Unless its icky kevin federline)

    ohh jo whiley... I came across her name once... I still remember it well... It was an acoustic version of I Try from the UK CD single for Still. Ah!
