Cool covers

Why is it that sometimes I feel I can juggle with chainsaws and other times I can’t play catch? Fortunately, this week was chainsaw week, and lots of things got done πŸ™‚

To celebrate this, here’s two covers of two cool bands by two cool bands!

First one is a pearl I found by chance… Belle and Sebastian sing Mutantes! Mutantes is a Brazilian band from the 60’s, formed by some more or less famous people like Rita Lee and Arnaldo Batista, among many others that came and went. They play cool and happy songs which I like very much. Belle and Sebastian is a Scottish band known (by me) for Piazza New York Catcher from Juno’s soundtrack, among other really cool songs, like Funny Little Frog.
Anyway, isn’t it cute how they sing in Portuguese with this accent??? πŸ™‚

Belle and Sebastian – A Minha Menina (Os Mutantes)

Second one I found while listening to the MTV Unplugged of Florence + the Machine, which is a nice album on itself. Don’t you love when you’re just not paying attention to what it’s playing and then something super cool plays? They have a cover of Jackson, by Johnny Cash and June Carter, country singers also from the 60’s. Very interesting combination πŸ™‚
