A toast to my own reunion.

  • Dolly Parton "Help" (Beatles cover)
    Posting a Beatles cover yesterday reminded me that I've been meaning to post this one as well. I love Dolly.

  • Me First and the Gimme Gimmes "I Sing the Body Electric" (from Fame)
    As much as I love covers, I used to have this thing against all-cover acts like Me First and the Gimme Gimmes. I'm working on opening my mind, and there's no better song to inspire me than this.

  • Indians in Moscow "The Price of Love" (Everly Brothers cover)
    A lesser-known and short-lived act, Indians in Moscow could have been right up there with [insert name of you favorite somewhat obscure overly dramatic atmospheric quasi-gothy early-'80s new-wave act here]. You know, kind of like a Missing Persons with a lead singer who could actually sing. (Sorry, Dale, but you know it's true.) If you hear this and find yourself thinking, "Hey, I could get into this shit," there are free downloads to be had here at C-Net and at this passionate fan site.

  • Fountains of Wayne "Better Things" (Kinks cover)
    I haven't quite forgiven Fountains of Wayne for the godawfulness of "Stacy's Mom," but I'm willing to take note of the fact that they once offered better things.
