The Friday Mixtape: 5/01/09

    Living Colour had not only the British “u” but a heavy metal umlaut on it as well?

    I did not know that.

    I believe that the umlaut is, strictly speaking, optional. But if a thing's worth doing, it's worth overdoing; that's my motto.

    Fair point, I suppose, esp. considering the song in question and esp. esp. that solo in the middle.

    WHat? No Zebra covering “The Ocean”??!!!

    I always like the themed Weekly Mix Tapes the best! Who knew that Dolly Parton had covered “Stairway to Heaven”? … making the point that all that glitters is not gold.

    If you like Dolly's version of “Stairway,” there's a mash-up here that will blow your mind.

    WFMU's blog compiled 101 versions of “Stairway To Heaven” a couple of years back. Some great listening there; the Leningrad Cowboys version, backed by a Russian military orchestra and chorus, is particularly grandiose.
