Served Three Ways: Three Grizzly Bear Covers

October 18th, 2012

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 […]

Served Three Ways: Three Covers of The Rolling Stones’ “Ruby Tuesday”

May 22nd, 2012

I’ve always been a fan of The Rolling Stones’ tune “Ruby Tuesday.” So after watching Arcade Fire perform the track alongside Mick Jagger for the Kristen Wiig farewell on SNL, I was inspired to feature it here.

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

May 15th, 2012

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 […]

Served Three Ways: Three Covers of Justin Timberlake’s “My Love”

May 1st, 2012

I can very clearly remember the moment I realized that Justin Timberlake’s FutureSex/LoveSounds didn’t suck. For it’s first month or more of existence I lived a FutureSex/LoveSounds-free life (seriously, I’d been living under a rock or something). I’d nonetheless convinced myself it wasn’t for me and that I wouldn’t like it. After all, Justin Timberlake just wasn’t […]
