Good music sounds good

I like cover songs. It's interesting to hear another take on a favorite song. The ones I especially like are covers by bands in a completely different style. A good cover song will add to your enjoyment of the originally, and sometimes let you hear things you didn't hear before. Wilco's 'I am Trying to Break Your Heart" by J.C. Brooks and the Uptown Sound and The Clash's Train in Vain by Annie Lennox are two that come to mind. I've also got a soft spot for acoustic versions of punk songs, but that list could go on a while, so just let the two above take you through Sunday night. Enjoy!
