Sexual Healing ( Marvin Gaye cover) – Hot Chip
Benny and the Jets ( Elton John cover ) – Beastie Boys feat. Biz Markie
I love cover songs [ exhibit a ], so stumbling upon this Under the Covers!! on Missing Toof in the middle of the night was a pleasant surprise…or maybe not. Check out the word of the day on the day I actually wrote this. Anyway, [/geekery].
The Hot Chip track is an interesting reconstruction of a classic song. I’m not completley sold, but I did listen to it all the way through. The Biz Markie cover is hilarious to me. It was on some Beastie Boys anthology released back in 1999. Just some lazy, sloppy, ODB-esque vocals over the instantly recognizable piano track. Enjoy!
