I'm listening to a new release of Death Cab for Cutie, which seems to be covers. The first song is Waterfalls, which I think is a TLC song (too lazy to google). Good cover. Fine. Other songs I don't recognize, but one, Fall On Me. Yes, they remade R.E.M.'s song. NO! Don't touch their songs!

It is a really good cover.

But, no. Don't touch their songs, or The Cure, or New Order, or Oingo Boingo. Everyone else is up for grabs.

Covers can go either way for me; they often elicit either “Cool!” or “Yuck”.

I was just listening to Cindy Blackman Santana’s cover of Imagine. I thought that one was cool. It surprised me, because I would have thought that would be one of those “Don’t touch that!” songs.

My Oingo Boingo sweatshirt from the 80’s was one of my favorite pieces of clothing ever! I had forgotten about it until I read your post. Good memory....

strange to read about a once cutting edge, set the bar kind of group doing covers of other bands.
What's next daytime talk shows and elevator music?

Especially not "Fall on Me"! That song is PERFECT.
I have trouble with covers sometimes as well.

I think one of the best covers that I have ever heard is Sound of Silence by Disturbed. It has really grown on me since another poster left it here a few months ago.

once bought a CD of Paul Anka covering a bunch of hits. I thought it was simply awful!

I knew you were referring to REM before I even opened the post. They are your "baby" and our will protect then with all that you have!

Yeah, I agree, leave REM alone!
