Happy Halloween from the Suggestions-Mayday-Beatdown-etc. popmeister mastermind!
Trying on a few different musical costumes, John Brodeur tackles a handful of classic covers:
Tears for Fear‘s “Head Over Heels”
Poison‘s “Talk Dirty to Me”
Aerosmith‘s “What It Takes”
Olivia Newton John‘s “Xanadu”
Oh, this is good, good, guilty pleasure stuff…
“What It Takes” emerges as the best of the batch, partially because it’s the best song. But mostly because Brodeur takes it furthest away from the original version.
And you just can’t go wrong with cover art that looks like this, either:
“Slutty Nurse” is available for free download.
