When Elvis Met Leonard. Nothing but uke, vox, and questionable taste. [more inside]
Hallelujah (drone version)
Here's my version of the esteemed Mr. Cohen's paean to the religion of love. I dropped the rhythm and chord changes, and made a new melody. The very minimal accompaniment consists of three tracks from my trusty old JUNO 60 analog synth. That's it! Video version (photos by yours truly) at Vimeo and YouTube.
You won't be able to escape this in the clubs this summer. Unless you just stay away, which is what I recommend. [more inside]
Stealing the 5/4 shuffle from Take Five and injecting it into Leonard Cohen: non-trivial. [more inside]
Hallelujah, Hoarse (cover)
I thought I'd take one for the team and kick off June's "Cover Hallelujah" Music challenge. This is a scratch recording I made about a year ago when I was home sick and had lost most of my voice. If you ever wanted to hear Excessively Husky-Voiced Cortex, this is your chance. [more inside]

Everywhere With Helicopter (feat. jessamyn; Guided By Voices cover)
So, what was it, November when the MeFi Challenge was unofficially "requests for covers from other MeFites"? But this goes even further back... sometime last summer, Jessamyn said she wanted to do a cover--with me!--of Guided By Voices' "Everywhere With Helicopter." "OK," I said, "but you have to sing and make jangly noises with things around your apartment." [more inside]

Deixa Isso Pra La
For the current MeFiMu Challenge, here's a song in a language I don't speak. This bit of Portuguese proto-rap is a longtime standard in Brazil. [more inside]
The strangest thing happened to me the other day. I was flipping through the radio dial, and every station was playing a cover of Lou Monte's version of Lazy Mary in a style that I despise. It sounded something like this. [more inside]
Black Rock Lizard dance remix
Wait for it... Here's a kicky little dance remix of a tune I previously posted. [more inside]
Colonel Roger (is a Soldier from the Future (is a Cover))
I know this song has been uploaded right at the very end (if not shortly beyond) of the MeFi Music Challenge, but I went through a number of songs in the long debate to find a MeFite's song to cover, eventually landing on the one that most frequently gets stuck in my head. That song is Colonel Roger (is a Soldier from the Future) by chiefbluefeather. [more inside]
Blue Train (the slow one)
I loved baby_balrog and his band's rollicking original of this tune. For this cover, I figured I'd take the train down another track: slowed way down (down on the ground), stripped way down (just vocal and strumstick), and with a little different shade of blue for the engineer's hat.
'Till We're Dead
If a MeFite sticks earworm on me I am gonna put it on here for what of prying it out of my head. Seriously though, awesome song.
Rock n' roll song (about rock n' roll)
We know that rock about rock rarely rocks. And we know that rock about rock about rock rocks. But how about covers of rock about rock about rock? [more inside]
The Book of Love
For this month's MeFi Music Challenge, just to make things confusing, I'm offering a cover of a cover. Specifically, it's a cover of Sleepy Pete and Melissa May's The Book of Love (which, of course, is also a cover--not to mention a hard act to follow). [more inside]
A cover of micayetoca's wonderful Veronica. [more inside]
2 Cigarettes (cover)
For this month's MeFiMu Challenge: Here's my fuzzy, fizzy, buzzy cover of chococat's original, one of my very favorite MeFi songs. [more inside]

Flyball's Lament (the cover one)
A version of my still-favorite all-time MeMu song by the inimitable Great Big Mulp, for the June challenge. [more inside]
Don't Play Cards With Satan (D.Johnston)
Took a look at this month's challenge themes and thought: Tom Waits does a much better Tom Waits impersonation than I could ever muster, and I'm just not a 'lots of notes' kinda guy. But, "spooky"... there you go! Submitted for your listening pleasure, my version of this Daniel Johnston song. With lines like "I saw my own heart laying, black with blood", I guess you could say it's pretty damn spooky. Here's a very powerful clip of Johnston performing the song on organ. [more inside]
