legit an excellent song
it samples Tom Tom Club though.
i wouldnt know
i only really like it because of the final fantasy cover but it still stands out as a good un
Tom Tom Club - Genius Of Love. Worth tracking down. Tina Weymouth what used to be in Talking Heads and that.
cheers my dear
Fantasy is just one of them
and owen pallett.
it also has the cheesiest video ever.
Owen's cover is awesome. Not too keen on the original though.
and it is better than the original
In truth I only started listening to the original because I couldnt find an mp3 of owens cover.
In the end i just ripped it off of youtube, but i do still listen to the original now and again.
Owen's version >>>> Mariah's.
FAVOURITE FINAL FANTASY COVER VERSIONS?
um, mine are probably an actor's revenge - Destroyer, and um! Peach, Plum, Pear - JoNo.
his cover of OMDs 1,2,3 auto-industry is pretty good.
and no cars go.
and that paris 1919 one from the session. i havent stopped listening to that song since.
it's quite cool. I don't like Paris 1919 very much.
My favourites: Peach, Plum, Pear and Fantasy.
they are great.
it was quite amazing seeing it done.
his bloc party covers pretty good too.
to be fair its hard to name a bad cover hes done really. partly because due to his instrumental restraints its probably hard to make them anything but his own.
which is good
and how much I love it.
I wish he would do Xiu Xiu covers. i think it's be pretty ace.
peach, plum, pear isnt a touch on the original i dont think
but joanna's is still nice. her vocals and the harpsichord grate, i find. the vocals on ys are about a million times more listenable than on the milk-eyed mender.
no, that's not true. the milk-eyed mender is a beautiful album, but i just think anything owen does is nearly always pretty much most of the time y'know.. um, always really nice.
i think what made milk-eyed mender great was the childlike playfulness of it all.
something which lacks in owens cover.
thats also why i think milk-eyed mender > Ys.
not to say Ys isnt good, its great. its just too la-di-da for me
I find the song carries a lot more weight (emotionally) with her singing it.
i just prefer his interpretation of the tune.
and er, i prefer violiny sounds to harpsichordy ones.
They occasionally rival Talking Heads in weird pop awesomeness.

I totally forgot about Tina Weymouth's crab dance in that clip, it's incredible.
