"Omelet du Homage" : THE WEEKEND MIX
I've been listening to Joe Jackson's "Night & Day" for almost 30 years now, and it's been almost 40 that I've been listening to Badfinger's "Straight Up," and it took "STEVES" suggestion to finally have it hit me. "Breaking Us In Two" is "Day After Day." How did I miss that one?
@ "ITSOK2BRIGHT," all of your Zeppelin entries would make a great mix on their own, but I'm not sure if that's what I was looking for. LZ just took a song, re-worked it, and claimed authorship...like 30 times. I know I used the word "rip off" on Wednesday, in which case, your suggestions would indeed make sense.
Thanks to all who participated. Here's what I've got for you.
Day After Day- Badfinger
Breaking Us In Two- Joe Jackson
In Between Days- The Cure
Pot Kettle Black- Wilco
Death Is Not The End- Bob Dylan
Welcome Back- John Sebastian
Mystery's All Mine-Jules Shear
It Only Costs A Dime- The Everly Brothers
Brilliant Mistake- Elvis Costello
I Want To Tell You- The Beatles
Only A Memory- The Smithereens
Ooh! My Head- Ritchie Valens
Boogie With Stu- Led Zeppelin
My Heart Hurts- Nick Lowe
Mary Anne- Marshall Crenshaw
Young Americans- David Bowie
When You Come Back To Me- World Party
Coming in just under the wire for posting, but not soon enough for inclusion on the mix, was this suggestion from "LAMEREX." It's a good one.
The Animals' "Cheating" vs. Tom Petty's "Breakdown."
Thanks Lamerex, and to Soundsource for the quick supply of the Animals MP3, which I still only have on vinyl.
