In this week’s Eyesites, inspired by Ben Folds’s infamous version of Dr. Dre’s “Bitches Ain’t Shit,” we at The Eye took it upon ourselves to compile a list of our 12 favorite unexpected covers. In the magazine, it’s a match game, in which you have to pair the original song with the covering artist—so, if you still want to play, close your browser and go grab a copy (or click here)! But here, now, for your listening pleasure, we present the songs themselves, in all of their bizarre glory.
“Jolene” by Dolly Parton, covered by The White Stripes.
“Lithium” by Nirvana, covered by The Polyphonic Spree.
“Sweet Dreams” by The Eurythmics, covered by Marilyn Manson.
There are a lot of insanely talented musicians at Columbia, and not nearly enough opportunities to hear them. The Eye decided to invite a few of them to play little concerts in the Spectator office. (We were more than a little inspired by NPR’s Tiny Desk Concerts series.)
Made up of Stephan Adamów, Cam Johnson, Henry Murphy, PJ Sauerteig, and Erika Thompson, Jeffers Win has been gaining a bit of a following around campus since they put a two-song EP up on BandCamp. Their next show will be at Live at Lerner’s Finals Study Break on May 2 at noon.
