The Revivalists are another band that I've been enjoying quite a bit, and their more country take on this Bee Gees song (the best Bee Gees song?) hits that thing where you want a cover song to add something new, and not just duplicate what went before. Anyway, I dig this.
Welcome to Philosofer week. I've got a half-baked idea to try to find videos of more modern artists covering less modern songs. I was inspired partially by Pepper's "Jump In The Line" video. Let's see what happens.
The first entry is Houndmouth, which is a band I've come to appreciate quite a bit. This cover of Dion's "Runaround Sue" starts a little slow, but really gets fun well before the end. Enjoy!
Thanks for indulging me and my weird little theme this week.
(Yeah, meat played this song a number of years ago, but this version is better.)
I don't wanna go home yet.
Is it Friday yet?
But can I disappoint Philo two days in a row?
I couldn't find Harry Belafonte performing this song live, but hey, I found this.
I had to find a way to fit her into this week somehow . . .
Let's have some fun this week, shall we?
I changed my mind, and decided this fit my mood better. I'm not sure what that means, and really I didn't have a plan for this week, but the blues seems to fit just right. This song has a way of haunting me round and round, so I figured I should share it with y'all.
one more cut, not live, but great.
