The Velvet Revolver cover was pretty good.

Previously unreleased? It was a bonus track on the DualDisc version of Talking Heads '77. Get with the program.

Thank you, subby.  I felt like I'd been born under punches today, but that was nothing but flowers.

Anyone seen David Byrne and St. Vincent perform together?  There's a show coming up nearby, not sure how much to rearrange my life to get there.

That sounded like some kid playing his cello over a bad recording of the single.

In the world of overrated things, David Byrne is king.

That bonus track was an acoustic version.
 It is not this version.

It's also awesome by Canadians.

And fairly awesome acapella, too.  The modern dance is okay, if you like that sort of thing.

Yes, well worth it.

/and that is definitely the same acoustic version on the re-release of Talking Heads 77

Nice catch, smits.

Have you caught those guys who call themselves "two Cellos"?
Some of their cello covers are kind of awesome.

How about Stéphane Grappelli playing violin with Pink Floyd on Wish You Were Here? http://vimeo.com/35552818

Though I have to admit that cello is pretty damned cool ;)

You could replace all of the horrible lyrics with a monkey screeching and it would be better by an order of magnitude.

I'm still partial to the live "Stop Making Sense" version.
