For this weekend’s mix, we’ve used Leann Grimes’ 14-track album cover as the graphic for the post. We had to crop the image, though, which means we needed to find the same font the original artist used. The shadow on the title is a little different, but for the most part, we think we got pretty close.
In a way, you could say we covered Leann Grimes’ cover. A cover of a cover, of sorts. But not exactly.
There are all sorts of ways to cover things, especially when it comes to music. You could cover it the same way the artist originally recorded it, you could change it up a bit, or you could completely deconstruct the song and rebuild it from the ground up.
Some people call that remixing, others say it’s still called covering.
This week’s mix starts with Leann Grimes‘ remix/cover of The Morning Benders’ “Excuses,” titled “Old Bodies Slip When They Make Love” (lyrics from “Excuses”), followed by a Morning Benders cover of Paul Simon’s “Mother and Child Reunion.”
Confused yet? If so, just forget about it and listen. It’s the weekend.
Thanks, as always, to The Tale of The Tape for sharing.
