This thread was borderline offensive, but well worth it for that sweet seal of disapproval

Elliott Smith is my 2nd favourite musician of alltime. No offense was meant, but I'm really not all that concerned about others' feelings.

02-09-2009, 05:49 PM
You people believe anything.

And for the record, a properly executed joke thread does not have somebody going "HEY GUYS THIS IS FUNNY NOBODY WRECK IT" because that wrecks it. Dammit. Elementary boarding.

On another note .... does anybody agree that the metric version of between the bars is the worst cover in the history of covers ... She truly ruined a great great song.....

As I touched on elsewhere today, the very worst cover in the history of covers is U2 + Arcade Fire covering Joy Division's Love Will Tear Us Apart. Go and watch it, and tell me you can't feel your bowels constrict just a little.

As for Metric's cover, it's actually alright if you don't see her doing the arty face-sway while she sings it. And for God's sake, don't think about the glasses, and cough when she says "Seperate".

Yeah, I actually bought that album. That cover sucked balls.

But its gonna take more than a shitty cover to truly ruin a song. The song is just fine. To ruin it for me would be like...
Someone stabbing me from behind while I'm listening to it.

if you're ineresed in a good Smith cover, Bad Astronaut (side project of Lagwagon's Joey Cape) did a grea cover of "needle in the hay"

....which they have on their myspace page now

Yeah, that is a great cover. I remember hearing that a few years ago. I actually went to search for it the other day (i couldn't remember the name of the band). Took me a good portion of my work day....there are thousands of covers for this song....

i was a fan of that cover before I really was aware of Smith, geting into BA from the punk scene. Then i heard the original is Royal Tananbaums and was "woah...it's that song but it's different and sounds AMAZING"

I actually just heard from an ex-roomate's dog's sister's owner's cousin that they were also bringing John Lennon and George Harrison back from the dead and reuniting the Beatles.... Ringo excludedl. Hey, if they can freeze Ted Williams, anything is possible.

I wanna' see Elliott Smith cover Cat Steven's "The First Cut Is The Deepest."

That would be awesome!

For the record, New Moon sucked.

Anybody who likes Elliott Smith had all the New Moon music well before it was released.

And furthermore, I'm pissed that they squeezed 60-minutes of music into a double-disc set. Unnecessary. It all would've fit on a single disc.

"still being funny" implies that it was ever funny to begin with

They should make a new message board page called ZOMBIE-CHELLA where everyone can post their dumb zombie requests.

I would also like to see somebody make a Coachella poster with a line up full of dead artists.
