I have to say, I love that Devo cover of "Satisfaction". :) I like some of the covers that Tori Amos has done too, but other of them just kind of suck.

Sometimes covers are cool, sometimes they suck. Take 10,000 Maniacs cover of "Because the Night".. it sucks.

Frank Zappa made a great point about this in one of his books: the roles of
composer and musician are very different (which is why there are even two
copyrights for a piece of recorded music: one for the composition and one
for the performance). When you're playing music, you're acting as a musician,
even if you also happen to be the composer. They're very different processes
that are independent of each other.

As a style of music, the blues is remarkably limited (if you look at the theory, anyway).

It's always 12 bars, and it's always of the form 'call, response, call, response'.
It always has the same exact chord progression. The melodies are very often the same exact melody (but not always).

Route 66, for a poor example, uses the blues format (although it blurrs the call, response nature of a proper blues tune). Same exact chord progression, 12 bar blues format.

Mother, from Police's Synchronicity album, for a very good example, is a pure blues tune (if whimsical). Listen to it sometime, then listen to almost any B.B. King tune, and you'll see what I mean.

see, yea, the greens, allow for a
call, response, call, response, call, third party interrupts, mom yells downstairs, dad turns the car around, cat rotates, response.

So as I sit here convalescing from some evil cold, I'm reviewing my
music collection and re-discovered Cranes, this odd little post-alterna
band I was into several years back.

Anyone familiar with them? Their lead vocalist stands out the most...
besides the fact that she's stunningly gorgeous, she sounds like a pixie.

CH, they're one of those bands where you're either "Wow, that singer is incredible." or "Who gave that six year old a microphone?"

I'm in the former camp :)

I made a post in Now Playing about this, but I don't really like their newer music. Future songs has some good moments, but most of it puts me to sleep. But pretty much any of their other albums (including Population Four, which a lot of people didn't like) I can listen to over and over again.

So I had this thought, about songs with "HEY!" in the chorus.
the first two that come to mind are Rock and Roll Part II, and holiday by greenday.
Can anybody think of any others?

How about that Prodigy song with "hey HEY hey hey" in it, sampled from
somewhere else?

Where exactly DID they sample it from? Reminds me of Cindy Lauper.

YES! That song! I know I've heard that "HEY HEY" sample before, but
I can't place where.
