NSFW, Lyrics.



This is how you do a cover. You take it, make it yours, & make it even more kickass than the original.

A banjo doesn't hurt, either.

This cover of "Little Secrets" by Passion Pit song made me want to hang up my guitar in defeat.


(This is the original version, to show how well she captures the synth melody)

Eh, I give props for doing a decent job on "A Team" since it's live, but... nah, it's not something I would listen to casually.

Now, stuff by Sam Tsui, Alex Goot, Kurt Hugo Schneider... those covers (or mash-ups) I would listen to all the time. And do, in fact.

I can't think of many covers in my playlists, with the major exception of anything Nirvana did from the Meat Puppets. Those were great.

EDIT: The Gary Jules Mad World cover is another good one, yeah.

I feel like there was a lot of good lyric writing done in the 80's that was completely overshadowed by the awful, awful synth garbage that ran over the top of it.

The Gary Jules cover rescues the lyrics from that, and gives 'em a more **** accompaniment. That's a good cover.

Is a bad TfF cover. Auto-tuned to oblivion, barely a variation. The Gary Jules cover is iconic.

The Gary Jules cover took everything that was good about the song and wrapped it in an awfully generic piano with whiny vocals. The original is dated and very 80's but the upbeat sound and high tempo with the depressing lyrics makes it work whereas the cover sounds like a teenager whining about his life on facebook.

They succeeded at that then.

Oh, and if we're talking bad covers linking glee is basically cheating.

You're going to have to work a little harder to convince me. What's "whiny" about Jules' vocals? What's "generic" about the piano? Why does the upbeat sound and high tempo of the original "work" with the depressing lyrics?

The contrast between the music and the lyrics in the original never struck me as intentionally ironic; that was sort of just the convention of the time. You made songs with jouncy synth backing - the lyrics that went along with them just were whatever they were. Everyone did it, from Flock of Seagulls to Led Zeppelin and back. The end result was a pretty clear zeitgeist, but also a lot of songs whose lyrics are out of step with the sound.

If you think that Gary Jules sounds like a teenager on facebook, then you either haven't listened to the song lately, or you haven't heard the music that's actually the stuff of whiny teenagers.

Fix yo' perception, brah.

Honestly, I like both versions for different reasons. I'm sure part of it is association with an original we knew and liked at the time, but the cover is just slow. It's good that way, but it also kinda beats you over the head with "this is a sad song, and I'm going to make sure you don't miss it". I liked the original with its faster lyrics precisely because it didn't beat you over the head. I guess it was just a trend of the times musically, but they wrote songs for people to listen to the lyrics to get the meaning, sometimes surprisingly so. It was part of the appeal that you'd hear the music of a song on the radio and like it, then you'd pay attention to the lyrics and gain a whole different perspective. Kinda like a twofer or something.

As an aside, it boggles my mind how few people listen to lyrics of the songs that they like.

A favorite hobby of mine is telling people that think "Possum Kingdom" is a love song that it's actually about the rape and murder of a bunch of girls in Texas, from the point of view of the killer. Smiley: schooled

This song popped right into my head reading through this topic. While I can kind of get into a zone to the Cohen monotone, and he's pretty **** and seems a really an interesting bloke, he doesn't really do singing. I like the Rufus Wainwright cover of Hallelujah.

My picks*

Stevie Ray Vaughan covers Mary Had a Little Lamb

Dave Matthews covers Long Black Veil

Indigo Girls cover Romeo & Juliet

*This isn't implying I like the cover version better than the original..in all cases.
