"Breaking Badfinger: Inspired Covers" : THE WEEKEND MIX
So, there's this TV show that just recently finished its run of six years and everybody went apeshit like it was the greatest thing since "Maude." And it might have been, but I wouldn't know because I have never seen it, not one minute. I've also never seen a minute of "Star Trek." Really, I haven't.
Thanks to this TV show, Badfinger is trending.
And so...some tunes came to mind and then this mix came to be. It's not all Badfinger covers, but there are a few, including one of the song that started it all to close the set. The rest, like Jon Brion's Queen cover or Jason Falkner's excellent stab at the Left Banke or Posy Jon Auer's take on a killer track by Bread are here because I like them all.
