I drive a Space Ship

I drive a space ship, but its not a Lincoln and I’m not Lady Gaga, but I may be gaga.  Everyone says she has a space ship, which I definitely could believe with the way she dresses.

Those Lincoln commercials got me thinking they’re selling space ships which in my opinion is really awesome. Its got futuristic 80s music that are all covers for some reason but are still cool and they say awesome things like space ships don’t have keys.  If I liked the way the Lincoln looked over the car I have (which I don’t) and had the money I would probably buy a Lincoln based on the commercial.

Major Tom by Shiny Toy Guns instead of Peter Schilling

Space Oddity by Cat Power instead of David Bowie

Burnin’ for you by Shiny Toy Guns (Lincoln must love them or they just like 80s covers) instead of Blue Oyster Cult

Under the Milky Way by Sia instead of The Church

I drive a Honda Civic ’09 and it comes complete with an electric speedometer and a video gamish steering wheel.  Its sleek fast and as a pinstrip down the side and its really low to the ground and oval.

Yes I love space ships and futuristic music and people too if you haven’t figured it out and I’m not ashamed.  How about you? And have you noticed the Lincoln commercials at all?

Magic Date November 23rd

November 20, 2009 at 12:07 pm (music) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

What’s up with releasing all these albums on the same day? I know they’re trying to jump start the holiday season and this is a good time to release albums, but seriously all on the same day?

Shakira She Wolf    I liked the song She Wolf whether other people liked it or not I can’t say.

Lady Gaga   Fame Monster    Listen to the dark side of fame.  Some of the songs are scary so watch out, but they’re all addictive.

Beyonce     Iam…Yours  Live album   Beyonce’s first live album and she’s got pipes that are shown off live.

Adam Lambert  For Your Entertainment   Glam

Rihanna     Rated R        Was this written for Chris Brown? Some of it is kind of it is frightening and sounds really rough.

Susan Boyle   I Dreamed a Dream   She can sing for real.

Kenny G     Holiday Album     Yes he’s releasing an album

And it looks like Britney Spears was a little off with release of her singles collection.

Are you planning to buy one of the many albums released on November 23rd?  In person or on itunes? Or are you just into singles?  Personally I’m getting the fame monster.  I haven’t figured out if I’m getting the version with the fame attached or not.  I’m buying the actual physical CD  because I want the cover.

The better, more popular cover

Usually covers are not better than or become more popular than the original but sometimes they are. (Mostly they are worse like movie remakes).  Especially with the songs that you don’t realize are covers. 

Some of these songs have A LOT of covers, but I only put the original and most popular cover.

Tainted Love  Soft Cell cover Gloria Jones  original  Ever wonder why the song sounds like 60s?

Hazy Shade of Winter   Bangles   cover          Simon and Garfunkel  original

Self Control  Laura Branigan  cover   Raf  original

It’s my Life   No Doubt  cover  Talk Talk  original

MacArthur Park   Donna Summer cover  Richard Harris original

Which of these do you like better the original or the cover?  Did you know about the original before?  Know anymore better/more popular covers? I would like to know more.
