Years ago, I posted a live version of this cover that was cut off at the end. At last, a studio version now exists and I'm happy to share it. To read about who Sardina, the original artist, is, check that old entry. Beware, however, as the links are likely now defunct. Luckily, the awesome Musical Family Tree has tons of Sardina tracks available for free download, including the entire Presents album, from which the original comes. Seriously, it's a brilliant pop album and you should download it now.
I love the Crystals so much I can't believe more people haven't covered this song. It's my favorite.
Thanks (or blame) goes to the Bossa n' series for Bossa n' Roses comp. Because we totally needed jazz-lounge songs about drugs, murder and other politically incorrect things.
Possibly a little too bleak and ominous for a lullaby, but it's Coil. What would you expect?
You love college a cappella and you know it. Unless, like me, it kind of creeps you out more than the Coil lullaby.
Another song I can't believe hasn't been covered more frequently. This is the new-wave jam!
It's unclear to me why the track listing on the album from which this comes lists the title as the plural "Complicated Games," but it's obviously the XTC song "Complicated Game." And it's quite a fun alt-country version.
I think a reader sent me this '60s psych gem a while back. My apologies for not remembering who, particularly since I love it.
I must admit hating "Da Da Da" with a passion, but my love for Yoko and anyone who covers her songs erases that hatred somewhat.
I might be the only TMBG fan who lists "Narrow Your Eyes" among her favorites, but I do. And this power-poppy version doesn't make me retch, so hooray!
