I know I posted an Arcade Fire track yesterday, but I do like this cover of the Talking Heads song from 1983.
Arcade Fire ‘Naive Melody (This Must Be The Place)(Talking Heads cover).’ mp3
Having posted a Jose Gonzalez song yesterday, I was reminded by Elizabeth over at The Roaring Machine about this track. And…Why not?
Jose Gonzalez -‘Love Will Tear Us Apart (Joy Division cover).’ mp3
Driving back from the Glasgow gig last night with the soon to be Mrs. 17 Seconds, and two friends, (see below) one of them, Gordon, said that as an old raver he couldn’t get into The Klaxons. I’m really hoping this will change his mind.
The Klaxons -‘Not Over Yet (Grace cover).’ mp3
I like the Voxtrot bits I have heard so far, but I haven’t heard a huge amount. I like this New Order cover…
Voxtrot -‘Love Vigilantes (New Order cover).’ mp3
I do love Bond films. Octopussy has not dated particularly well, but I do think the title song is underrated (and I would much rather Rita Coolidge singing this, than say Sheena Easton doing ‘For Your Eyes Only’ or Gladys Knight’s Licence To Kill). Here Jarvis and co. work their usual magic.
Pulp -‘All Time High (Rita Coolidge cover).’ mp3
Considering how much of an influence they have been on me, I don’t know why I haven’t posted more Siousxie and the Banshees here. But whatever…here one Britain’s first lady of alternative music and her merry men take on the Beatles.
Siouxsie and the Banshees -‘Helter Skelter (Beatles cover).’ mp3
Hope you’re all having a nice weekend, wherever you may be.If you like these tracks, they will, as ever, only be up for one week only. Remember to support the artists, whether by going to Amazon or iTunes or wherever.
Be good xx
