Belle and Sebastian live covers
So I have a number of bands to post about and several of my recent recordings to make available (Mates of State, Destroyer, Mag Elec Co., Selmanaires, SSLYBY, The Whigs, Voxtrot, Murder Beach, Man Man, The Eames Era, Luigi, etc., etc.) but not a lot of time to do so at the moment. I'll do my best in what time I have. Today, however, I'm going to offer just a quick treat. Because they're sitting on my HDD, I'm offering a selection of live covers by Belle and Sebastian.
Belle and Sebastian - Gonna Fly Now [Rocky theme]
Belle and Sebastian - Here Comes the Sun [Beatles cover]
Belle and Sebastian - Space Oddity [David Bowie cover]
Belle and Sebastian - Oliver's Army [Elvis Costello cover]
Belle and Sebastian - Video Killed the Radio Star [Buggles cover]
Belle and Sebastian - The Kids Are Alright [The Who cover]
Belle and Sebastian - Billie Jean [Michael Jackson cover]
Belle and Sebastian - The Boy with the Thorn in His Side [Smiths cover]
All are live, and they vary in quality. However, I think they're all quite listenable. "Billie Jean" may suffer the most from screaming fans and the like, but I just had to include it.
Speaking of "Billie Jean"... how great was this video?
MJ sure was a badass back in the day. Damn.
UPDATE: Since Alex mentioned it in the comments, here's another:
Belle and Sebastian - Stayin' Alive [Bee Gees cover]
