I had grand plans of seeing the David Bowie Is exhibit in Chicago this week before it closes January 4th, but life got in the way and I was stuck home with the flu. Here’s some Bowie covers to make up for my loss:
Golden Smog – Starman
They put it on an album, but luckily somebody recorded this portion of a live version at the Cedar.
Dandy Warhols – The Jean Genie
Something they’ve done live, but it’s more fun to listen to them stumble through this album version.
Nine Inch Nails – I’m Afraid of Americans
A perfect combination for me: “Earthling” Bowie is one of my favorite phases of his, and I listened to NIN every time I mowed the lawn at age 14.
M-Ward – Let’s Dance
Doesn’t have to be bigger to be better (or equal, in this case)
Beck – Sound and Vision
And now for something completely different.
