  1. 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.

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

  3. 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.

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

  5. 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)

  6. 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”.
