For your Listening Pleasure or Pain

Well, I'm not going to exert any creativity. I'll just borrow from our good friend YouTube and not so well known Radio Blog:

If you have had the unfortunate experience of hearing the Black Eyed Peas "Humps" , Alanis Morissette has done a parody which doesn't sound too bad. Actually hearing the words in Alanis' rendition you validate your earlier thoughts on the lameness of the original version.



Now onto decent songs that became awesome (my retro word of the month) after being covered, but not as a parody:

Warning : They are so well done they are depressing, so listen to after at least 3 days of sunshine.

Pretty Good
Nine Inch Nails "Hurt"

Awesome
Johnny Cash "Hurt"

Okay
Tears For Fears "Mad World"

Awesome
Gary Jules "Mad World"

Ha, Ha. I like the original song, but I'm thinking I like this guitar version better. Thanks for the heads up.

OK, laughed my head off on the video! I too never knew what was really being said, now I kinda wish I hadn't!

By the way, I like the Humps song. A bit on the dirty side, I agree, but I love singing along with it.
