Tune in Tuesday (105) - Cover Edition!

Tune in Tuesday is a weekly music feature originally hosted by the fabulous Ginger at GReads. However, for the time being, Katelyn of Kate's Tales of Books and Bands will be hosting. As some of you may know, I am ridiculously addicted to music. One of my favorite things to do is share the music I enjoy. Each week we'll be posting some of our favorites to spread the love of music. So link up and join the fun!

Week two of Cover Edition is here!!! I'm still super excited about this, as you can tell. Hee hee. For those of you just joining in, all month long we'll be sharing some of our favorite cover songs! I can't wait to share some of my absolute favorites with you and seeing yours as well. So link in and share the covers you love, too!

Happy listening!

  1. Oh, I totally forgot about the Goldfinger cover of "99 Red Balloons," but I love it! I also like the Letters to Cleo version of "I Want You to Want Me" (yay, "10 Things I Hate About You"!), though I do prefer the original. And I really like Greg Laswell's sound...a very interesting take on such an upbeat anthem!

  2. This 99 Balloons covers is one of my all time favorite covers. I haven't listened to it in years, but man, it still holds up.

    The Girls Just Want to Have Fun is def an interesting cover. I love when a band or artist does a song in their own style and it completely changes everything about the song even though it's the same melody and words. Have you heard the Maine's version of this?

  3. Wow it has been too long since I have visited the blog. It looks great!

    I've hear that version of Girls Just Want to Have Fun but didn't know who sang it! Thanks for sharing. Now I know :)

  4. I don't think I've ever really listened to Goldfinger but I love their version of that song! And I just ADORE Greg's version of Girls Just Want To Have Fun. It totally sounds like a different song when you slow it down. Although I think he could sing any song and I would be happy. As for Cleo's version of I Want You To Want Me, I love it! The way her voice kind of goes raspy at the end of some of her words is so cool. As for Head Over Heels, I don't think I have even heard the original but I certainly like the cover of it! And Anberlin's cover is good too! I think I like it more than the original. Great picks this week!
