There was a time when there were a LOT more cover versions posts, but as DMCA notices and the like started to kick in, it became harder to post stuff -even with honourable intentions without someone ripping it down (rather than politely emailing you and asking you to take it down as used to be the case).
As was generally my custom, there is no theme, other than that they are cover versions. Enjoy
Ah…Flaming Lips. Still one of the most amazing bands I have EVER seen live, though even they struggled slightly with the sterile conditions of Glasgow’s SECC.
No matter. A band who sound awesome on headphones and in concert alike,and there have been quite a few Christmas related songs over the years (nearly thirty years the band has been going now, unbelievable), so here they are for today:
Flaming Lips -‘Christmas At The Zoo.’ mp3
Flaming Lips-‘A Change At Christmas (Say It Isn’t So).’ mp3
Flaming Lips-‘White Christmas (demo for Tom Waits).’ mp3
…and a few Flaming Lips bonuses. You should go and buy as many Flaming Lips albums as you can. Get The Soft Bulletin, Clouds Taste Metallic, Transmissions From The Satellite Heart and Yoshimi Battles The Pink Robots at the very least.
Here is today’s instalment. Just a quick post (though I have already had my Mum on the ‘phone worrying that I’m spending so much time blogging that I can’t be talking to mrs. 17 seconds enough). Don’t worry, I am!
