rock swings

A few years ago, Paul Anka (of all people) put out a really great collection of covers, called Rock Swings:

Unfortunately, I can't find his cover of "Lovecats" on youtube, but you can hear a snippet here.

"Lovecats" was the first cover from this cd I'd heard (by way of Michael, of course), but most, if not all, are pretty groovy. It's still my favorite, however.

Here's his "hit", "Smells Like Teen Spirit"

Ooh, I have to listen to that again. So fun.

Not that Michael. (Or any, really.)

I still can't grasp that. I'm bewildered.

Kind of like seeing George Washington bopping down the street with his iPod.

Too freaky for me.

I've got this album and I love it. Seriously. But I use the songs mixed in with others. A straight through listen is just too much.

Let me know if you need a copy.

You'd think it would be a train wreck, but it's actually really, really good - certainly a better listen than, say, "You're Having My Baby."
