So I’m sitting here at work listening to “Party Shuffle” in iTunes, and Straight Out Of Compton from the album “Bring the Rock” by Nina Gordon just came on.Â I was inspired to go find the original (by N.W.A.), and the contrast is really funny.Â But the cover version is actually a very well-made song; I encourage anyone interested to go look for it; I think I actually got it off of her web site (not sure if it’s still up).
I think I need to make a compilation album that’s all covers, just so I can put that song on it.
Hmmm…Â Maybe I’ll make it a double-disc release, and make disc 2 all of the original songs.Â That sounds like fun.
This Sting song (I’m So Happy I Can’t Stop Crying from the album “Mercury Falling” by Sting) is nowhere near as good, unfortunately.
