I've covered a lot of Nick Cave and Tom Waits over the years. A lot. It's all a bit cliché.

I have covered Walking In The Sand, by the Shangi-Las

Maybe I Know, by Lesley Gore

Everytime by Britney Spears

Numerous songs by the Rohan Theatre Band

I've translated and covered a few Kaizers Orchestra songs.

Some Brel, too.

The list goes on.

Not all of these covers were good.

I Was At The Lizard
When You Covered Nick, Tom
And the Shangri-las

Anything by Pretty Balanced. I've fallen in love with pretty much every song they've ever released.

Start Wearing Purple by Gogol Bordello. It is obnoxiously overplayed here, but I will forever love that song.

All The Things She Said by T.A.T.U. I have the sudden urge to change it into a slow, haunting song.

Any metal song... I'd love to play accoustic versions of metal songs just for fun.

Saw Red [as a duet] and Date Rape, by Sublime
She's Got You, by Patsy Cline
I Won't Stand in Your Way, by the Stray Cats
Hong Kong Garden, by Siouxsie and the Banshees
Baby, I'm an Anarchist!, Against Me!


and various metal songs into lounge covers. I'll probably think of more later.

radiohead--creep (i know, that one's pretty obvious, but i always want to)
joy division--love will tear us apart
april march--chick habit
presidents of the united states of america--lump
tommy jones and the shondells--hanky panky
chuck berry--you never can tell*
stone temple pilots--creep

*please note that everything on this list will probably have a punkish/metal twist :)

also, i've been thinking of teaching myself piano and playing dolls songs at the next coffeehouse (it's basically a talent show thing my school does, but set up like a coffeehouse atmosphere DUH) and, of course, singing. any thoughts?
of course, if this happened, i'd tape it for you guys :)

it's probably already been said. but especially b/c when Cobain performed on SNL by himself. and people didn't know how to take the song (its intentions)...there was a silence after...........and i knew exactly what he had just punched me in the face with-------"Rape Me" by Nirvana---err. yeah. Cobain really.
