Belle and Sebastian live covers II: Electric Boogaloo

Peeps rock.

Last week's B&S covers post has been so well-received that I've elected to offer a second helping. I hope you'll all forgive my lack of creativity and enjoy the tracks below. I suppose you can consider these the contents of your own little digital Easter basket. Have at 'em!

Belle and Sebastian - Linus and Lucy [Peanuts theme; Vince Guaraldi Trio cover]
Belle and Sebastian - Don't Fear the Reaper [Blue Oyster Cult cover]
Belle and Sebastian - Time of the Season [Zombies cover]
Belle and Sebastian - Some Other Guy [Beatles cover]
Belle and Sebastian - The Boys Are Back in Town [Thin Lizzy cover]
Belle and Sebastian - Leader of the Pack [Shangri-Las cover]
Belle and Sebastian - Texarkana Baby [Bob Wills/Eddy Arnold/others cover]
Belle and Sebastian - Everyday People [Sly and the Family Stone]
Belle and Sebastian - So You Want to Be a Rock N' Roll Star [Byrds cover]
Belle and Sebastian - Sunday Morning [Velvet Underground cover]
Belle and Sebastian - San Francisco (Be Sure to Wear Some Flowers in Your Hair) [Scott McKenzie cover]

I'd also like to thank the people who wrote me directly with further suggestions and the like. Anyway... grab these, put 'em on your portable mp3 player of choice, and enjoy the wonderful spring weather. If the weather sucks where you live, you're still allowed to listen to them. No worries.

Also, it just dawned on me that I haven't seen a single creepy Cadbury eggs commercial this year. Huh. Because Easter wouldn't be complete without it, here you go:

If any Cadbury people read this please send me money. And/or chocolate. Thanks!

Yo, thanks for these covers . . . one of my favorite things about B & S is their choice in covers, with a version of Dinosaur Jr.'s "Freak Scene" at the top.

If anyone still wants the Freak Scene cover, I'll rapidshare it and post the link here. Be warned, the quality is pretty ropey - the levels dip after about 30secs and the cymbals are really dominant!
