Music [Video] of the Moment - February 2, 2009

Been away from the blog for a minute so I figured it's time to get back at it. If you've read this blog before, you might know that I'm a pretty big fan of cover versions of songs and this is one of my favorites. Everybody knows the Luther Vandross song Superstar, but that wasn't even the original version. The original was done by Delanie and Bonnie back in 1969, then done by the Carpenters in 1971 and Luther in 1983 before this version was done in 1994 by the bad Sonic Youth. Pretty different from the original but still dope nonetheless. It was even used in the trailer for the scary as fuck scary movie High Tension and it was used in the movie Juno...for what it's worth. Check it out:
Sonic Youth - Superstar [Cover]

Download: Superstar
Pretty unique twist to a classic.
And I'm back on this blogging shit.
