Puddles Pity Party is back with another flawless cover, this time taking on one of our favorite songs of all time, the Pixies’ 1988 classic Where Is My Mind?, in a fantastic arrangement by Storm Large and The Balls.
Awesome Music On The Awesomer
The Floppotron plays a song which feels like it was tailor-made to be performed on old floppy and hard disk drives – Eurythmics’ 1981 classic Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This). The synth sounds just work perfectly on the computer hardware, and who are we to disagree?
Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross recorded a fantastic tribute to John Carpenter’s theme from Halloween, adding their own haunting style, while preserving the synth sound that made it a classic. From the upcoming John Carpenter’s ‘Anthology: Movie Themes 1974-1998.
PMJ’s Scott Bradlee and Chloe Feoranzo perform a wonderful cover version of Foo Fighters 1997 classic My Hero. For every 1,000 plays through 10/14/17, they’ll donate $10 to the UMC Foundation, who provided Level 1 trauma care during the recent tragedy in Las Vegas.
The original Sonic the Hedgehog has one of the most catchy and memorable soundtracks in the history of gaming, thanks to composer Masato Nakamura. Now listen as 130Grit Sound Studio performs a trio of familiar tunes from the game, done wonderfully in Dick Dale/surf rock style.
Alternative band The Academic used the slight delay in Facebook Live’s video streaming to record and remix their song Bear Claws on the spot. By showing their stream on a screen while they were streaming, they were able to play along with their past selves.
(PG-13: Lyrics) We’re not sure how he managed to pull it off this time – but mashup master DJ Cummerbund managed to combine Whitney Houston’s I Wanna Dance with Somebody with Mumford and Sons’ Little Lion Man, and a dash of Kesha’s TiK ToK so the party don’t stop.
Like many of us, Puddles Pity Party has the occasional bad day. The sad clown with the golden voice works out his stress with a little pie, some cupcakes, and a impassioned cover smoosh-up of Queen and David Bowie’s Under Pressure, and Let It Go from Disney’s Frozen.
Actor, comedian, writer, and musician Steve Martin is joined by the talented members of the Steep Canyon Rangers for a captivating four-song set of country and bluegrass melodies in NPR’s amazing and personal concert venue. The tracks are all from The Long Awaited Album.
It’s been a rough week, and the loss of one of rock and roll’s greatest makes us even sadder. Let us celebrate the life and talent of Tom Petty through some of his many hit songs, then say farewell with his cover of While My Guitar Gently Weeps, accompanied by Prince.
The Warp Zone celebrates Star Trek: Discovery with a fun medley of themes from The Original Series, The Next Generation, Deep Space Nine, Voyager, and Enterprise. Though we really wanted to hear the lyric “It’s been a long road, getting from there to here…“
Musician “The Little Strummer Boy” and vocalist pal Kurt Grunsky performed a great cover version of R.E.M.’s 1991 hit Losing My Religion with a twangy country/bluegrass vibe. We always pictured this song with being played on the banjo for some reason.
The 2001 Archie spinoff film Josie and the Pussycats was too smart for its time (and for how it was promoted). But the band’s catchy original songs are some of the better fruits of the mostly regrettable pop punk era. Now you can get them on vinyl thanks to Mondo.
