    It's a normal handbell choir thing. Helps with muting at times, but more importantly prevents skin oils from transferring to the brass causing discoloration or otherwise marring the metal. Sets of bells like that are not inexpensive.

    Really cool version!

    I literally spent the whole time watching that with my mouth agape. Even when I noticed I was a fool I still couldn't close my mouth. I've never seen anything like that, an ensemble using those types of instruments.

    And they killed it. Thanks for opening up my eyes a little.

    A cover of Manhattan Island Serenade, partly in Dutch.

    That Blood, Sweat and Tears cover of Manic Depression was amazing...I couldn't get the link to work though so I went to youtube...

    I love cover tunes that have been "tuned" up...Yes and ELP were amazing at fucking about with that sort of thing.


    My band did a cover of Cross-Eyed Mary for our old label's compilation album of "repurposed covers"

    Wow ... I really like that "Cross-eyed" cover.

    Doesn't top the Small Faces original but it DOES give me a raging guitar solo by someone I suspect is regularly "in the spirit of the song".

    That is aweful

    I kept expecting Ron Burgundy to come out and light his flute on fire. Based on the way they were dressed, the band probably just came back from a church social.

    Yes! I love that Lorde tune and they do it justice.

    I was always baffled by the latin interlude within their arrangement of 'God Bless The Child'. Somewhat tasteless, really!

    I love the Dutch band Daryll-Ann, some of the best songwriting out there once they had a few albums under their belt, but on an earlier album, 'Seaborne West' they threw in a ridiculous cover of 'You're So Vain' by Carly Simon that I can't find a link for. Probably a good thing. Their next 3 albums were thankfully bereft of covers and actually quite fantastic.

    Their rendition of “Sympathy for the Devil” is pretty much a travesty:



    I thought it was the worst version of that song until I saw Mary’s Incredible Dream, an all-singing, all-dancing TV variety special starring Mary Tyler Moore that looks like the 70s exploded all over the inside of your TV’s picture tube. This contains a version of the aforementioned by the Manhattan Freakin’ Transfer, which is truly abysmal and I wish I forgot it even existed.

    Fundamental conclusion reached: BS&T should never do covers. That opening bit sounds like Chicago on way too much valium.

    Two versions of the same song, not sure if any of them could be considered a cover-version.
    First the German version by Heinz Rudolf Kunze, which was released in 2009. The song is credited: Lyrics Jackson-Clarke / Kunze, Music Ulmer



    The English version by Anyone's Daughter, which is credited: Lyrics Michael George Jackson-Clark, Music Matthias Ulmer



    Matthias Ulmer plays keyboards with Heinz Rudolf and with Anyone's Daughter and Michael Georgde Jackson-Clark is a guest singer on the last Anyone's Daughter album, which contains this song.
