TwoFer Tuesday

I love the songs, usually hits, that are re-recorded by other artists and sometimes end up better than the origional. Sometimes they are just a different take on the song and that makes them good in their own right.

My current favorite and example #1.

Anya Marina's version of T.I.'s Whatever You Like


Click HERE for the origional by T.I.

Another one I liked a lot from awhile ago, example #2

Rockstar Supernova was a show on TV that was kinda like American Idol but better, looking for a new lead singer of the group that Tommy Lee and some others put together. Some cool singers showed up and it was rockin week after week.

Dilana made it to the finals and was beat out by Lukas Rossi (who I like too). She has a different voice, very raspy and deep. She did a cover of Nirvana's Lithium that I love and listen to still. She is crazy in this video. Love it!

I want to say I LOVE Nirvana and I Love their song and version. I just dig Dilana's too! lol

P, Thinking about that show, this girl was unreal. She's a rock star no matter what you might think of her. I am pretty old school and she's right up there.

Yes, I think that got in her way. I remember looking into the music she put out, and really, I just so much liked her covering other people's stuff. Not so much her own stuff. I feel bad in saying it for some reason. Oh well.

Dilana's own stuff is really good. I've actually purchased two or three songs of hers on iTunes. Check her out...
