not nelly furtado!

well, i was all excited that i could post Nelly Furtados live lounge track and every other blogger has beaten me to it! Which is ok - be sure to go and get it cos its pretty bon.

But there have been a few live lounge appearances recently that I have kinda liked in varying measures. First up - Patrick from Fall Out Boy doing a cover of Ne Yo's So Sick, very minimalistic, acoustic and who would have thought a gentle rock cover would suit this song?



MP3: Fall Out Boy - So Sick

Next up are Orson, who i tried to like but to be honest can't be bothered with. No Tomorrow is ok, but it in no way deserved to be number one. Their version of Sugababes Push The Button adds nothing to the Starsailor version from a few months back, but here it is anyhoo...



MP3: Orson - Push The Button

We Are Scientists recently did an acoustic set at the Live Lounge and choose to cover Hoppipola by Sigur Ros so points there for ingenuity and i find it strangely soothing...

Coming soon - my top albums and songs of 2004...

    These guys need to come up with some different covers. Why not "Ace Reject" or "Biology" next time?

    i know! I mean thats 3 crazy covers now and 3 push the bloody button! Biology would be a great but hard song to cover as it has so many sections in it? maybe someone should be really post ironic and do a cover of a cover! Like "hi we are keane and we are covering steps version of diana ross' chain reaction. check out our weird guitar sound we made by jamming a dildo in the piano"
