Cover Art by Sir Runcible Spoone
Songs That Didn't Need to be Covered...or Did They?
Alright, so...this is my latest project, which will eventually
be an extremely long album (probably about two or three discs worth of material, if you
use the archaic standard of CDs) consisting of an eclectic collection of cover songs.
The songs I choose to cover will not be selected according to any coherent system; I accept
suggestions if you would like to hear me cover something, or, most likely, I will just cover
whatever song happens to be on my mind for the particular week in question. If you would like
to suggest a song for me to cover, you can either PM me on SongFight, or send them directly
to my email. As an added bonus, I will cover
the song in a style of your choosing, if you like.
New songs will be posted every Wednesday, hopefully. We'll see how that goes.
This Week's Cover:
Aux Champs Elysses
Alright, here we are, back with yet another installment, almost a week late (I think; I honestly have completely lost track of when I'm supposed to be releasing these things anyway). Anyway, this time we have a lovely little French pop tune called "Aux Champs Elysses" by Joe Dassin.
This is, of course, the second STDNtbC...oDT entry to be simultaneously released via the Muffin podcast, muffinCast, along with a smashing new chapter of The Road to Hana. In addition to these delightful recordings, the podcast also contains some important Muffin project updates, as well as some fascinating research on the background of the song and its artist conducted by eminent musical historian Sir Runcible Spoone.
