    Default Strange WCTBL cover

    Since thereīs no new music around, found this strange piece surfing round the internet for covers:

    http://www.simbioticstore.com/player.html?id=431&tn=2

    Itīs a band called "Arab Strap" and they are covering Why Canīt This Be Love. It sucks, but I thought I let you know...

    I think the cover of WCTBL is actually pretty cool. The voice is pitchy at times, but I think any people here that dig Beck, would like this one. It reminds me of something that I would hear in a movie...not saying that I am going out to buy the latest from Arab Strap...But it is a much better cover than some of the hair band has-been did on some of the other covers out there...

    Oh my God! I could sing better than that and I suck. That is hilarious.

    As far as the Jump cover, it sounds like a polka version or something. hehe.
