Cover songs  
Just got my copy of Pylon Hits via Lala the other day. Because I know of them through my following of R.E.M. and their sizable influence on them and other artists ranging from Television to Talking Heads to the Ramones, I was suffice to say excited. So far, there have been a few tracks I know I'm going to love and then a few others that will probably require a few listens to form an opinion about.

In any case, as much as I'm enjoying Pylon, I have to say I really, really like R.E.M.'s treatment of Crazy quite a bit more than the original. Really though, I've grown up listening to the song as done by R.E.M. you know? Same thing goes for some of the songs that Morrissey has covered. Yes, I do like Bradford a bit, but Moz's version of Skin Storm is awesome, as his cover of The Jam's That's Entertainment. Just amazing.

Well, what about you folks?

Did you ever vote again? The polls will let you, but it just won't keep track of your previous vote.
