As I said, I'm behind on Music Advent posts - I don't have to catch up, but that's my intent, anyway - and I found another song that Sara Bareilles covered that I liked, so I posted that before I went to bed this morning.

 I'm behind on music advent, I'm behind on Holidailies too. Ah well. I'll work on that over my long weekend.

Here we have Sara Bareilles doing Sia's "Chandelier" (a very fucking difficult song, but she manages it pretty well):

This is a Karla Bonoff song, and really I love her version more than Linda's, but then it wouldn't be a cover, would it? 

If you like piano solos (I do) there's a very nice one at the beginning of this, but I set this where it will (hopefully) actually start where the song starts.

Since this is two versions of the same song, I'm going to see if I can get them into the same post.

First, David Byrne:

 I was poking around looking for interesting covers and I found this - I guess this is a British band, Hot Chip? I never heard of them that I recall, but I like this.

The only version of this I knew was the Springsteen one - I wasn't even sure it was his song originally, but Springsteen wrote it, I looked it up. (Although honestly, if you look at the lyrics, it's totally got that sad-working-man vibe that sounds like classic Springsteen. I'm not sure why I ever thought otherwise.)

(You might end up hearing this song again tomorrow, done by another artist. I found another cover of it that I really like, and it's totally different. There's not a rule that says you have to do a different song every day, right?)

Day 4: Hot Chip does Springsteen 

(Since I used this for my Holidailies entry for today, I will point out that you can also watch the rest of these videos without having to jump over to YouTube, if you prefer, by just going to my recent entries and scrolling down!)

 



If you want a preview of tomorrow, here's the spoiler:

 Here's your Pearl Jam (covering Tom Petty, another favorite of mine). If you have any problems playing this, click over to YouTube and it should play fine. On Twitter it wouldn't work for me. (Note: it seems to be fine here, far as I can tell!)

Day 2: Pearl Jam Does Petty

 
mellicious: (Wonder Woman)
 I always do Music Advent (which happens primarily on Twitter) - I don't know how long that's been going on in December, maybe 5 years? I think other people frankly put a lot more thought into it than I do, but still, I manage. Sometimes I get a few days ahead, but doing a whole playlist in advance? Probably never gonna happen, with me. Anyway, this year the theme is covers. So far I've only come up with famous artists playing other famous artists - hopefully I'll manage to get in some less-famous ones as well. The way I've been coming at this is to look for artists I like, or songs I particularly like. I was actually looking for somebody else covering Pearl Jam, but so far that's mostly led me to Pearl Jam doing covers of other artists, which is also cool (and Pearl Jam does that a lot) but I don't want to just post 25 days of Pearl Jam singing covers, either. (I do have a Spotify playlist with some covers on it so I'll probably go browse around in that eventually and see what's in there. And I'll probably do some Christmas songs later on, because I do have a lingering fondness for Christmas songs still.) 

The first day didn't end up being Pearl-Jam-related at all, it was Prince doing "Creep" at Coachella, ten years ago. I love this song and I'd never heard this cover.

(Note: I've had some trouble with the embeds in past years and I think I'm going to just post them here daily rather than try to do several days at a time like I've done in the past. That seems easier.)
