Served Three Ways

  1. Three Covers of The Knife’s “Heartbeats”

    Welcome to our latest Served Three Ways. As always we’re offering you three covers by three different artists of the same song. In the past we’ve featured covers of songs by Grimes, INXS, and Drake. This time we’re dishing up three covers of Swedish duo The Knife’s breakthrough hit “Heartbeats.” We’ve, of course, included Jose Gonzalez’s ubiquitous cover Continue…

  2. Three Covers of Grimes’ “Oblivion”

    Served Three Ways is a feature where we offer up three different covers of a well known track as performed by three different artists. For example, we’ve previously featured three different covers of Drake’s “Hold On We’re Going Home”, Daft Punk’s “Get Lucky”, and Elliott Smith’s Between The Bars”. Today, we’re serving us a trio of Continue…

  3. Three Covers of Drake’s “Hold On, We’re Going Home”

    Served Three Ways is a feature where we offer up three different covers of a well known track as performed by three different artists. We’ve previously featured three versions of Daft Punk’s “Get Lucky”, INXS’ “Never Tear Us Apart” (including a great take on the track by Beck & St. Vincent), and Elliott Smith’s “Between Continue…

  4. Three Covers of Daft Punk’s “Get Lucky”

    It’s been awhile since we’ve offered a new Served Three Ways. If you’ve forgotten, Served Three Ways is our feature where we offer up three different covers of a well known track as performed by three different artists. As I’ve previously mentioned, I really enjoy hearing three different bands approach the same song in different Continue…

  5. Three Grizzly Bear Covers

    I’ve always been fascinated by covers songs. What interests me most about cover songs is what the cover says about the covering band and also what it says about the influence of the band being covered. When I started the Served Three Ways series I hoped to allow our readers to contemplate the ways in Continue…

  6. Three Covers of INXS’ “Never Tear Us Apart”

    “Never Tear Us Apart” was released by Australia’s INXS late in the summer of 1988. It was a huge pop hit charting at #7 in the United States. It was often thought of as the anthem for INXS frontman Michael Hutchence, and was even selected by his family and friends to be played as his Continue…

  7. Three Covers of Rev. Gary Davis’ “Cocaine Blues”

    There are at least two popular, well-known tunes that sport the name “Cocaine Blues”. The first of the two is the tune made popular by Johnny Cash which was originally by The Western Aces. The second is a popular finger-picked blues track originally laid down by Reverend Gary Davis. Today’s Served Three Ways features the Continue…

  8. Three Covers of Fleetwood Mac’s “The Chain”

    Fleetwood Mac’s “The Chain” originally appeared on the band’s 1977 masterpiece album Rumors. Interestingly it’s the only tune that is credited to all five of the of the members of the band at the time (Lindsey Buckingham, Mick Fleetwood, Christine McVie, John McVie, and Stevie Nicks). Even more interestingly, the track’s lyrics were allegedly written Continue…

  9. Served Three Ways: Three Covers of Oasis’ “Wonderwall”

    I won’t front. I think Oasis’ “Wonderwall” is a pretty damn good song. And by “pretty damn good,” I mean that it’s one of the best and catchiest pop rock songs ever written. The track was written by Noel Gallagher and sang by Liam Gallagher. At the time he wrote the track, Noel claimed it Continue…

  10. Served Three Ways: Three Covers of Blackstreet’s “No Diggity”

    Blackstreet was formed in 1991 by singer producer Teddy Riley. Interestingly, Riley named the group by combining the names of two of his original group members, Chauncy Black (a.k.a. Chauncy Hannibal) and Joseph Stonestreet. However, Stonestreet only released one single with the group (1993′s “Baby Be Mine”) before departing for his own reasons. Subsequently, he Continue…
