10 MORE REASONS TO COVER THE ROLLING STONES

Posted: October 15, 2007 by dillion in Indie rock, MP3, Music

1. Before They Make Me Run-Steve Earle. Probably my favorite Kieth tune (yeah, including Happy).

2. Dead Flowers-the eels

3. Jumping Jack Flash-Leon Russell

Jumping Jack Flash-Guns and Roses (acoustic)

4. Divorce Song/Emotional Rescue-Liz Phair

5. Stray Cat Blues-Soundgarden

6. Let It Bleed-Black Crowes

7. My least favorite tune from Exile on Main Street: Rip This Joint-Afghan Whigs

And my favorite tune from Exile: Shine a Light-Alejandro Escovedo.

8. Moonlight Mile-Jason Isbell. I guess lots of folks were disappointed by his solo album, but I wasn’t. I love it. Love it!

9. It’s All Over Now-Social Distortion

10. I’m closing out with two unknown bands who do what I think are some pretty wild takes on these exceedingly overplayed Stones tunes. I think they’re really cool. What do you all think? (That’s not rhetorical–tell me!)

Sympathy-The Trews

YCAGWYW-The Disco Biscuits

    The Trews cover of Sympathy for the devil might well be the WORST STONES COVER OF ALL TIME. The singer has that (college-alternative-Hootie-Vedder) warbling sound which is a complete disaster, the drums are plainly ridiculous in their supposed funkyness and the sharp guitar riff is changed to Dobbie Brothers softrock heaven. An atrocity! Out of the bunch I like the Eels cover the best.
