    Hadn't heard this one before: "Layla" played by Judy Schomper, Flairck's original violin-player:

    Damn ... it's well done but leaves out the good part of the song (which would be really well adapted for violin).

    OK, so re-reading this thread, I find that in one of my old posts, my inability to proofread again caught up with me, so I'm gonna try this again:

    Probably about 10 or 12 years ago, I saw this female pianist/vocalist on a talk show do a jazz piano trio reading of Smoke On The Water. She basically turned it into a torch song, and she totally made it work. The thing that was cool was that she dispensed with the guitar riff, except for one brief bit near the end where she sang it. I don't know who it was but I thought ti sounded really cool and would love to hear more.

    Edit: I think it could have been Judith Owen:

    That guy shows up everywhere. I saw him last year outdoors at an ampi-theater.

    I can remember having seen him in Rotterdam on the pavement of a restaurant. Or it was someone who looked like him, I didn't dare to ask him if he was Leland Sklar.

    I'll add my own recent cover tune here if you don't mind. My occasional bandmate, Jonas Reingold, makes a lovely fretless bass appearance in the second half.

    ^^It isn't Mad World (speaking of favourite covers, but it's working [sic] very well! Great arrangement.

    German metal band, Thunder And Lightning, are now streaming their cover of the Phil Collins classic, "I Don't Care Anymore". VERY different from the oriignal:

    I LOVE this cover of "Beat It" by Dutch prog-metal band, Lemur Voice.

    It even has a couple of jazz breaks, with killer trumpet solo on the second one.

    Well, that certainly went in unexpected directions!

    Tweaker did a cover of this song in 2012:

    Do I hear autotune?
    How on earth can the members of Queen be happy with this version?

  18. #193
    I honestly don't see why the members of Queen shouldn't be happy with it. It isn't a rote copy: they added something of their own, and it's very organic as opposed to the hyper-produced original.

    And, no, I don't think there's autotune involved. There's too much vibrato, autotune tends to kill that. Plus, it seems to be done in a single take.

    For a vocal coach's PoV, check out:

    I can't say I really like it, unless this version is different from the one I heard on Dutch radio.

    Still I hear some heavy processing in the beginning.

    Hocus Pocus. One of the greatest covers ever. I am literally in tears.

    Nice. The lady is pretty good on the vocals and the kids steal the show, as usual.

    Vocals particularly impressive when she's obviously far along in her (I presume) third pregnancy. That puts a lot of pressure on the diaphragm.
