Ted it sincere and writes good music and has good taste and is generally an awesome guy.
Am I wrong in thinking no one can ever do Tom Waits justice? Every cover I've ever heard of one of his songs always seems to suck
I heard a version "No One Knows I'm Gone" that was very slow and extremely noisy. There was some cool white noise in the back of the mix like trains releasing steam and other staticky refuse. It was pretty cool, but vastly different than the original. I agree though, considering how many people cover him, it's amazing no one has done a good faithful rendition of one of his songs.
did a complete version of cat power's cover of space oddity ever surface? I think the word at the time was that she needed to wait a year before making it available or something...

Josh. You're killing me here. Just pick one and stick with it.
Shit. Logged in with the wrong one. That was a mistake.
And my favorite, but more of a remix of Billie's cover.
