Thread: WTF covers

    This is interesting, but it's four hours long and should be taken in doses.

    On his "Ridiculously Self-Indulgent Ill-Advised Tour" last year, Weird Al Yankovic played a different cover song every night as part of his encore. Whether you like Weird Al or not, sample some of this stuff, not because any given cover is brilliant, but because as a whole it shows how amazingly versatile his band is.

    "In the Air Tonight" by Lil' Kim. I don't know if this is considered a true cover or not since Phil Collins is sampled extensively in the song.

    Apparently it was on "Urban Renewal," "a tribute album to singer Phil Collins, released in 2001 in most European markets and in 2003 in the United States, containing remakes of his songs by R&B, soul and hip hop performers." (from Wiki)

    Many hard to find CDs (mostly prog)

    It is also included on the 4-CD set Phil Collins' Plays Well With Others.

    Right. That's where I heard it. It's an interesting collection. I like the first 2 CDs the best.

    Lewis Baloue (a.k.a. Randall A. Wulff or Lewis or Randy Duke) adapted "Strangers In The Night" in a very special way on his album "Romantic Times" (from 1985) and called it "We Danced All Night":
