My stomach and I are no longer on speaking terms. I’ve decided that if it doesn’t feel better tomorrow then I will remove it myself with a clean spoon. I have no time for this stomach-achey bullshit.
In my weakened conditioned I have fallen under the spell of this cover of Paul Abdul’s “Straight Up.”
Yeah, I was reading through Torontoist’s fabulous Cover Song Catalog (sorry Canucks I cannot abide that U). I’m sort of a dork when it comes to well-done (and sometimes even not so well done cover songs). They’ve got a whack of good covers there, including one of my personal faves, The Postal Service’s cover of Phil Collins’ “Against All Odds.” That one’s wracked up over 50 listens according to my iTunes. You really should check it out. I’m on my way to listen to Damien Rice cover Prince’s “When Doves Cry” which will probably not kick the ass of The Eels’ cover of “I Could Never Take the Place of Your Man,” but it’s worth a shot.
