Under The Covers
A Tribute To David Bowie
"Rock 'n' Roll Suicide (live)" - Rilo Kiley
Jenny Lewis, marry me.
"Life On Mars?" - Seu Jorge [buy album]
From The Life Aquatic With Steve Zissou soundtrack. Not amazing, like I don't want to make out with it or anything, but it's nice to drink your morning coffee to. If you like it, also check out his cover of "Rebel Rebel."
"Five Years (live)" - Arcade Fire [buy album]
Rumor has it that Bowie chose five years as the length of time because of a dream he had where his deceased feather told him he must never fly again and would die in five years. Thank you, Wiki!
P.S. Buy the new Arcade Fire album.
"Modern Love" - The Last Town Chorus [buy album]
Featured on Grey's Anatomy, this cover definitely deserves the attention. This song is perfectly fit for her voice. However, I greatly prefer the live recording below.
"Modern Love (live)" - The Last Town Chorus
"Let's Dance" - The Futureheads
"Let's Dance" - M. Ward [buy album]
An amazing cover. On most days, I actually would pick this cover over the original. But that's because I'm a sad man inside.
"The Man Who Sold The World" - Nirvana [buy album]
Best Bowie cover ever.
