    Controller Jacobs nailed it with that "under pressure" cover. I'm a longtime Xiu Xiu fan. Unfortunate that he duets with Michael Gira, but the song is from before Gira's public sexual assault allegations... for an equally great Xiu Xiu cover without the bad vibes, check out their version of Joy Division's "ceremony":



    Do all of you know that Ryan Adam's was recently outed for his own indiscretions with under age fans? Swampy, I think your students have a point.

    Or do you guys ignore the personality stuff? I'm a recovering Kanye West and R. Kelly superfan, but it's something I can't support once you know... and in hindsight, i feel dumb for not connecting the dots with R. Kelly sooner.

    These kids crack me up. There's so much to love in this video - the guitarist smoking his cig while playing a la Keith Richards, the drummer's three-sizes-too-big acid-washed denim jacket... I think they forgot to tell the bass player they were filming today; it looks like he came straight from 7th period P.E.

    "When I use a word," Humpty Dumpty said in rather a scornful tone, "it means just what I choose it to mean - neither more nor less."
    "The question is," said Alice, "whether you can make words mean so many different things."
    "The question is," said Humpty Dumpty, "which is to be master - that's all."

    um yep - Ryan is off the playlist

    also - there are some lyrics that as a adult you gloss over that perk up and 8th graders ears - so one must be careful

    Great cover.
    "I lingered round them, under that benign sky: watched the moths fluttering among the heath and harebells, listened to the soft wind breathing through the grass, and wondered how any one could ever imagine unquiet slumbers for the sleepers in that quiet earth."

    This is definitely the best cover of a Chumbawumba song. Proper title is actually "Rappoport's Testament".

    And, um, this was a cover. Otis Redding did the original.

    This one equalled the original, which is a really high bar.
