I thought of a few more while listening to the radio at work today (oh man, these are so *perfect*, almost to the point of being obvious)

Abominominous: You May Be Right, Billy Joel
Glenn Case (yeah, another one): Lonesome Mary, Chilliwack
Johnny Ca$hpoint: Spin Me Round (or whatever that's called), Dead Or Alive
Octothorpe: Love Shack, B-52s (I mean, DUH)
Rachael Layne: We Live For Love, Pat Benatar
Jute Gyte: Procreation of The Wicked, Celtic Frost (okay, that wasn't on the radio) I just figured that since you completely ignored my request for Candy-O, that this might be more intriguing to you ;)

[edit] OOOH!! I remember the other one I was beating my head against the wall trying to remember earlier!
Starfinger: It's A Mistake, Men At Work

Well, you didn't; but it's ok.
Today I went shopping with my cousin and Barnes & Noble has a thing where you can listen to samples of the tracks on CDs by scanning the barcode... so I checked out the "London Calling" and it's great, so I bought it.
G.o.B. is a cool song. I'm on the job. Eventually :)

I'm starting to see London Calling pop up in record shops all around Brisbane on the bargain tables for $9.99 (~US$5 - normal CD prices here are around $30). Strangely I'm starting to find this a bit offensive - like it's sacrilegious or something.

I mean - the bargain table is for Pan Pipe Hits or 20 Great Canadian Rock Bands - not the greatest album of all time!

It's been on 'Nice Price' for about 10 years. In fact when it first came out, it was a double album for the price of a single, so there is a certain continuity.

You know, I bought the 25th anniversary edition and listened to the 'demos' CD that came with it, and as an amateur musician it is amazingly heartening to hear the poor quality of performance and recording compared to the finished product. I mean, you can still hear the amazing amazing songs shining through, but at the same time, you think, well, crap, just about everyone here on Songfight has better recording techniques than this :)

it's remastered, but no extra disk.
Good album.

Certainly is. And a grower too. The extra CD is unneccessary - 5 never before released songs which display exactly why they were never released before, and a DVD (which I haven't watched yet.) My major displeasure is that it comes in one of those flimsy cardboard CD boxes which for 3 discs, you know is going to collapse in about 25 seconds.

wow!

If I have counted correctly, I would have 19 cover songs to be part of in this thread, if I chose to do every one of them.

No promises, but I will try to get to all of them if the other members of each project are willing. I am getting organized today, and making a master list of the recommendations that involve me.

ROCK!

glenn i forget whether i said this before, but sign me up for anything that involves DMatC.

also, (without checking back through this whole thread) to the best of my recollection, there has only been one other request (besides the one i already did) for me, from niveous. and DAMN dude why did you have to pick such a hard song? i seriously doubt i can play like that. but i will try to do it, since you asked.

furthermore, some more items for my wish list:
svën müllët - ugly kid joe's "mr record man"
future boy - the flaming lips' "bad days"

I choose it because I have such faith in your bass playing. But if it's too much of a bitch that song (I know it's a tough one), I wouldn't mind hearing you cover "Innocent" by Our Lady Peace. I think your voice which is considerably lower that the OLP guy's could really change the feel of the song to something darker.

I know it's a slighty odd list but I put a lot of thought into it. If anyone is wondering why I chose a certain song, just ask.
I haven't heard this song before, and iTunes doesn't seem to have it for me to listen to... anyone want to hook a brother up so I can have a looksee.

:wink:

Plus, I thank you for including me in the list, any thoughts on what made you think of this song and me?

I thought of you, Bortwein, because of your drum skills. I wanted to hear someone blow Lars out of the water.
