Music: best derivatives and best angry songs
Some best ofs in my current favourite lists.
While most of the music on my favourites list are original compositions, here are some cover versions and songs that sample others that I currently like a lot:
Something For Kate — Born To Run — I almost like this more than Springsteen’s original.
P Diddy with Jimmy Page — Come With Me — samples Led Zep’s Kashmir. Not the sort of creation I’d normally like, but I do.
The Gaslight Anthem — Baba O’Riley — this is really quite good. Incidentally, I read over the weekend that Meha Baba also inspired Bobby McFerrin’s Don’t Worry Be Happy — a far more annoying song.
Spiderbait — Black Betty — in particular the iTunes Originals recording, which rocks harder and longer than the album version.
Best angry songs
Some angry songs from my list:
Area 7 — Second Class Citizen — angry yoof.
Lily Allen — F$%# You — apparently about George W Bush
The Tenants — You Shit Me To Tears
Faith No More’s Epic is a bit of a grumpy song, rather than an angry song. I seem to recall The Datsuns’ MF From Hell would go well here.
What others are out there?
