  1. PLAY SOME SKYNYRD!

    Nice job on this. Now let’s hear “Hot for Teacher”

  2. it’s… it’s jump, but it’s not made of pure concentrated 80s anymore…

    Thanks a lot John, my brain just changed gears without popping the clutch.

  3. It’s odd to know the lyrics to a song and not know the song. (for at least the first minute or so anyway)

  4. It’s “Jump” meets “All I Want Is You.”

  5. That’s amazing. I didn’t think it was possible to make that song listenable, but this is even .. good.

    Emm Gryner did something similar to Def Leppard’s “Pour Some Sugar On Me”; you can check it out on YouTube.

  6. If you liked that, you’ll love Aztec Camera’s version of “Good Morning Britain” (I hope).

  7. I can’t believe how much better this version is than the original! Thanks for posting this, it totally made my afternoon.

  8. I prefer Bruce Campbell’s “Hungry Like the Wolf”

  9. Here is the Emm Gryner version of “Pour some sugar” mentioned in #7

  10. It kinda reminds me of John Wetton covering Heat of the Moment with Steve Hackett back in 1996. For whatever reason, doing an acoustic cover of a lame 80s song really worked: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jMjUQjp_EKE

    (in fact, all of their covers from that concert worked – Watcher of the Skies, I Talk to the Wind and Firth of Fifth were all real treats to listen to)

  11. The bluegrass version with the original vocalist is good.

    And Emm Gryner has a few more covers like that, a whole album, actually. I like the cover of Blur’s “Song 2″ and the Stone Temple Pilots’ “Big Bang Baby”.
