View Full Version : Covers!

I was just singing that old song "Lollypop". You know, "Lollypop lollypop oh lolly lolly lolly LOLLIPOP! -pop- dun dun dun dun"

Err, if you don't, then yeah. O_o

But what this topic's purpose is this: What cover song(s) do you think a J-rock/J-pop band could pull off well? It could be your favorite band, but it doesn't have to be.

I think Shonen Knife would do a good job with Lollipop.

ok, not exactly j.rock/j.pop, but worth noting

Have you heard Cibo Matto's version of Sammy Davis, Jr.'s "Candyman"? or how about when they do GnR's "Welcome to the Jungle"!!

Both are completely killer.... Highly recomended listening.

I don't know about what band would be good covering what song, but then again... the entire Hide Tribute album is covers. ;P

My favorite cover at this point (non-Tribute album) would be the cover of Radiohead's "Creep" by Shiina Ringo.

I don't really have any favorite covers of the moment but at the height of the Ricky Martin "Livin' la Vida Loca" craze I thought Hiromi Go's version "Goldfinger 99" was hilarious.

I'd like to see the brilliant green cover any spiffy No Doubt song =D

careless whisper covered by l'arc's hyde is really cool ( i think thats the name of the song )
