Cover Magic

Some covers are weird, some are kitschy, some are slightly amusing. Then there are those rare covers that make you appreciate a song you never fully appreciated before. Here are links to a couple awesome covers I've recently stumbled upon:

--"Breakfast in America," by Gomez
I actually dig the Supertramp original, though Gomez brings a certain rough snarl to it that's way more badass.

--"Rainy Days and Mondays," by Cracker
I know JP is an unapologetic Karen Carpenter fan, but I think most others would agree that Cracker takes this already mopey song to new depths of awesome mopeosity.
