I love this song. There’s a version for everyone. In my opinion it should be taken very slow and almost whispered. It is definitely a private song from one person to another. That’s why I love these little amateur covers:
This is the way you are supposed to do this song:
On your webcam, for your boyfriend, with no ornamentation. Just do it straight, like she does. Is it the greatest version? Who cares? It’s personal and was clearly meant for someone in particular. I love the wink at the end.
she gets it. more than her band does, I’m afraid. I appreciate that she doesn’t “push it” on her top notes, but relaxes into them.
OK, this girl scares me a little bit, but I do so like her take on the song (and she just does an excerpt):
Oh, and there’s a great version in the film “Blue In The Face”, which you’ll have to find for yourself. There are no good samples online. It’s filmed as a private moment between a woman and her dressing table mirror which strikes just the right sexy, exhilerated mood of a woman for her man.

Ting Tings v. Cheap Trick v. Toni Basil
Two groups that can always be mashed well: Ting Tings and Cheap Trick
Oh and Eurythmics, they always mash well too…
Daft Punk v. Justin Timberlake
I hate myself so much for liking this….
Wow, this one is really well done. I think there was a little more messing with the audio than usual.
Stevie v. REM
Pink Floyd v. NIN? Um, OK. It is one of my favorite Floyd songs, so why not give a listen…
Oh, now this is good. Black is Back. I’m so not the target audience for this, but me likes:
Found all these on Buzzfeed

Found this on Watashi to Tokyo. This won an award (I think) and in any case is a really cool video in a cute sort of way, I guess. Don’t care about the music much, just look at the video.

This might even make me like the Beatles…

I always thought The Police’s “Every Breathe You Take” is the top stalker song of all time but listening to Leona Lewis, I think Sting might want to watch his back…

C’est nouvelle musique que j’ai découverte sur blip.fm…

Je fais des excuses, je parle français très mal.
This is the title track from Emily Loizeau’s 2006 debut album (
More on Arthur H HERE (he’s kind of hamming it up on this cut, don’t be put off by that, listen to this:)
A cover of one of my favorite songs by Loizeau and one of my favorite French singers, Arthur H.
Arthur H I stumbled upon in a little Parisian cafe called Jacques, which was a renovated lesbian bar built above a bowling alley. Run by Jacques himself, this spot quickly became a habit for me and friends.
More on Emilie Simon can be found HERE

When the great man learns the Way,
he follows it with diligence;
When the common man learns the Way,
he follows it on occasion;
When the mean man learns the Way,
he laughs out loud;
Those who do not laugh, do not learn at all.

As a “meh” fan of the Beatles, I love this. I also think the editor got exactly what Romero was trying to say.
