Friendly Fires – I’m Good, I’m Gone (Lykke Li Cover)

The difference a little diversity makes is immediately evident for Friendly Fires. Quite what has held back the milieu of meandering morons that make up the music scenes mid range, mid class, middlemen is probably this intelligent and creative leap; crossing genres and keeping your opus open and fresh.”

Big on the Friendly Fires, bigger on Lykke Li, incredible cover.

Mystery Jets – Bleeding Love (Leona Lewis Cover)

Been running into some great covers lately. Here’s one of Leona Lewis’s “Bleeding Love.” Too good, more to come. Yes, he does look like Edward Scissor Hands in that picture.

Baby Huey – Hard Times

Best song from his Curtis Mayfield produced LP, “The Baby Huey Story: Living Legend.” I’m pretty sure this song is about a heroin addiction:

So many hard times/ Sleepin’ on motel floors, knocking on my brothers door/ Eatin’ spam and Oreos and drinkin’ Thunderbird baby…”

Most of the lyrics have a very dark, morbid and reflective overtone. The lead singer, Melvin “Deacon” Jones, died at age 26, you get the sense your dealing with someone well aware of his fate as you listen. High quality music.

“I’m a party house I’m afraid to come outside. Although I’m filled with love I’m afraid they’ll hurt my pride. So I play the part I feel they want of me, and I pull the shade so I won’t see them seeing me.
