Fave Friday: Cover Songs

April 16, 2010

First up. Gotsta give props where props are due. Bruddah kuya.d held it down the last two days with his 209 garnering WIH post. Holy smokes! Much love to all of you who participated in the convo as well! And with that said…

Jason Mraz‘s song “I’m Yours” (whose popularity can actually be traced back to Hawaii’s support) is probably one of the most over played/over done songs in recent history. We’ve seen it on American Idol, all over Youtube, and our very own band Ten Feet even covered it.

Not that that’s a bad thing. Mraz is probably flattered that so many people enjoy his music enough to want to redo it.


Jason Mraz – “I’m Yours”

One band I’ve been grooving out to lately is this a capella band called Straight No Chaser and they have a version of “I’m Yours” (which includes an Iz-ish version of “Somewhere Over the Rainbow”). Pretty cool. Check it.

And let’s not forget the cute, little kid who sang “I’m Yours” in this viral hit:

So today’s “Fave Friday” be on that very topic: Cover Songs. Rather than just listing the song name and the various artists who covered it though, let’s make things fun and a little more interactive.

Talk to us!
* Write the name of a covered song and wait for the next person commenting to guess who the original artist, as well as those bands who covered it, was/were.
* Write the name of a band, and wait for the next person commenting to guess the covered song(s) and who the original artist(s) was/were.
* Write the name of a song you wish would be covered and by who.
* Link to your favorite version of “I’m Yours”
* Anything else you like add.

K, your turn! 🙂

Happy VHO7V Friday! Have a good weekend and I’ll see y’all on Monday! 🙂

Fave Five Friday – Karaoke Songs

May 15, 2009

Is our WWE `ohana a singin’ bunch? Let’s find out shall we!?

This week’s Fave Five topic is… yep, you guessed it… Karaoke Songs (and please don’t pronounce that “care-e-o-key” 😛 )!

These are songs that you either like to sing yourself (if you’re da mic hog of da group), or with the group. Either way, it’s fun stuffs no?

  1. Let Me Be There – (singing it like) the Ekolu version of course!
  2. More Than Words – only if someone knows how to harmonize the other part. 8)
  3. A Song For Mama – most notes be in my range (easy). 😛
  4. Nothin But A G Thang – extra fun when you’re feelin’ a little tipsy and battling someone verse to verse. LOL!
  5. Anything Rick Astley – need I say more?

How about the annoying 5? Here’s mine:

  1. Summer Nights or Bohemian Rhapsody – these are actually fun group songs, but sometimes overplayed.
  2. I Will Survive – girly song… I can’t relate. 😛
  3. Barbie Girl – see above
  4. Anything unfamiliar or “self indulgent” (as Simon would say) – nothing more boring than watching/listening to a song that puts the singer in their own little world.
  5. Anything Britney or Boy Band-ish – need I say more?

On a side note, how about dem cheesy (local) music videos dey got goin’ on with some of dem songs? Or the Korean kine that uses footage that doesn’t even relate to the song? LOL!

Happy VHO7V Friday y’all! Have a good weekend and I’ll see y’all on Monday! 🙂
