This super fun jazzy version of 'Tainted Love' is by Irish artist Imelda May, and probably one of my all time favorite covers in my ipod library. Hope someone here enjoys it as well.

Here's a synthy-pop cover of 'I Walk The Line' that some may not appreciate but I totally enjoy Halsey's approach to it.

I like Theory of a Deadmen, that's a cool cover of Wicked Game (which is an all-time favorite of mine).

Lots of folks have covered that song, and probably my favorite is this one by Giant Drag.

However, since the original was so great (and the chick in the video was so hot), I'll go ahead and post the original video, you know, for reference...

"I'm on Fire" is one of my favorites. Bruce was intrigued by slowing down Johnny Cash's "train" rhythm and had been thinking about lyrics. When the rest of the band was on break during a recording session, he and the drummer kind of flipped this on tape. Obviously, it got fleshed out a bit later, but the foundations were simple.

"Helter Skelter" is a great song that took on ugly overtones after being referenced by a maniac. Similarly, "I'm on Fire" can be looked at by overemphasizing the opening "Hey little girl, is  your daddy home?" part. I think Springsteen is being poetic throughout the song and didn't mean it to be overly pervy.

while I'm a big fan of banjos I prefer the Boss' rendition

Town Mountain reminds me of the Mountain Sprouts

Always thought that the Derailers' original song "Can't Stop A Train" was similar to the Boss's "I'm on Fire."  That might be why.

And I always interpreted that first line as him being quite a bit older, but both being of legal age, so not pervy at all.  It is interesting, however, what using a contemporary lens can do to the interpretation of song lyrics.  "Baby It's Cold Outside" is a pretty striking example of that and has gained recent notoriety because of it.

daddy back in the day obviously meant "boyfriend", not father

those lyrics back at the time made perfect sense to the public and were not creepy

folks these days are WAY too sensative and seem to search and create issues that really don't exist

Music has always been the best form of free therapy for me, as no matter the mood there is a song or artist that can match the intensity & enhance the moment at times where it may be needed most.  Feeling excited or pumped up?  There's a song for that...     Feeling depressed or alone in misery?  There's a song for that....    Feeling goofy or silly and want to laugh?   There's a song for that...

In times of loss or feeling hurt, it can be a comfort, or a reassuring hug for the ears, to hear a musical expression that touches your emotions and makes you feel less alone in pain.       In the spirit of this thread, I'll add on another meager contribution that is for a song that has a particular ache that just resonates with me.     It's power is helping me during this most-difficult week after such tragic news, so I figured I would add it on to this here thread.

Original Version of 'Stay' by Rihanna:

And the cover of it as performed by Jared Leto & 30 Seconds to Mars.   I can truly feel his emotion in this song, and as a rocker performing a pop hit, he does a stellar job at conveying the sincerity and vulnerability of the words:

Thanks for bumping this thread started by Hooky up Erin.  I noticed he started this in early Feb, right before the emergency surgeries and hospital nightmare started.  I guess it’s his last thread here.

So here’s a cover by Eddie Vedder for Jon:

I had lunch with Hooky the first week of January.  He knew something was wrong then.  Was still looking and feeling good at the time.

I had lunch with Hooky the first week of January.  He knew something was wrong then.  Was still looking and feeling good at the time.

He first told me about this rare disease he was coping with back in October, but I think it had been going on for some time by then.  It was scary stuff, but Jon remained upbeat about it.  He probably just didn't want anyone to be worried.

I last communicated with Jon in mid April.  He'd finally gotten my care package (that had gotten lost at the hospital for over a month!), and so he thanked me and made jokes about the hospital, typically Hooky.  He sounded on the mend. 

So, this news really took me off guard, like a gut punch.  We just want to think that everything's going to work out, despite the odds.  Sometimes it does.  And, sometimes, no.
