#songoftheday: Me First and the Gimme Gimmes – Believe (Cher Cover)

I’ve been listening to Me First and the Gimme Gimmes for more than half my life, and today, I’ll finally see them perform live.

I’m guaranteed to lose my mind.

#songoftheday: Me First and the Gimme Gimmes – My Heart Will Go On (Celine Dion Cover)

In the world of Punk Rock Covers, no band comes even remotely close to Me First and the Gimme Gimmes.

They’ve really outdone themselves on this new album. It perfectly combines the high quality song picks of their first album, with the more complicated arrangements from their later releases. When it’s performed by these guys, turning Celine Dion’s well known ballad into an Irish drinking song just makes sense.

#songoftheday: U2 – Invisible

“I don’t dream, not as such
I don’t even think about you that much…
Unless I start to think at all.”

I’m always wowed by the way that U2 manages to retain a signature sound, but always manage to come across as sounding contemporary.  The fact that they’ve consistently pulled this off for over thirty years is just insane.
