I know my blog is a little random: Funny pictures, lots of music reviews, long pieces about comic books, news about movies and TV (and comics), but I think I should be getting more props as a covers blog.  I post covers every week.  Gimme some love, blogoverse!

The Killers’ breakthrough album, Hot Fuss, was a major-label “sounds like indie” extravaganza.  I’ve listened to it probably more than 90% of the albums in my collection, and I’ve never gotten sick of it.  I know it’s overblown recycled Interpol (which itself was recycled 1980s glamgoth), but there’s nothing wrong with imitation, as long as it’s done well.  And I have to say: Hot Fuss is basically perfect.  I’m much less of a fan of Sam’s Town, and I found their most recent album dull and unlistenable.  But Hot Fuss remains genius.

Plus, most posts go up to ten.

But this one goes up to 11!


All These Things That I’ve Done-Sharleen Spiteri.  This is acoustic, but this woman’s voice is so huge that you don’t even notice.

All These Things That I’ve Done-Matt Willis.  “I got soul but I’m not a soldier” doesn’t make sense.  But every time I hear it, my heart swells.  Matt Willis’ take on this, my favorite Killers’ song, adds a Billy Idol sneer.

Mr. Brightside vs. Hudson Mohawke-Datahowler

Mr. Brightside-This Unique Museum.  This one’s a little too light and airy for my tastes.  This song is a bust-out-of-the-gate explosion, and they kinda take the energy out of it.  But at least it’s different.

Mr. Brightside-PlayRadioPlay!  The inevitable technolectronica cover.

Mr. Brightside-McFly.  Basically, the original version.  On speed.

Mr. Brightside-Amy MacDonald.  An acoustic version by a gal with an amazing voice.

Somebody Told Me-Daniel Bedingfield.  This one’s a little weird, but I reallly dig the stop-start, hard-strummed acoustic sound.

Smile Like You Mean It-David Gray

All these Things That I’ve Done-Michael Tolcher

Mr. Brightside-Jhader
