Day 19 – A song you think has too many covers

When Follow Through (my band) was formed, one of the very first things that we agreed on was to never cover this song because so many other bands, especially punk, had covered it before. Here is an example

Day 19: Covers
I am someone who enjoys compositions and arrangements, so I cannot get enough of novel covers (like a capella, different genre, radically different instrumentation and stuff like that), but to just play the same song with different performers... I do not see the point of publishing that.
The first song that came to my mind when I thought of an abundance of covers: Metallica - Master of Puppets:

Too many parodies would have been easier: Don McLean's American Pie, as explained by Hank Green here: [noembed]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VdK-arqJD1g[/noembed]

Day 20 – Favorite song from the 70′s

Was tempted to post some Ramones but I will go with this instead, from 1973.

Day 20: '70s
This is an '80s performance and I think of Queen as an '80s band, but the song was still written and first performed in the '70s:
Queen - We Are The Champions (which I have memorized since late 2006 due to Nintendo's RVL-001)

Impossible. The 70s was difficult enough but most of my favourite songs are from the 80s.

Time for some Bangles?

Just imagine she's singing to you ;)

Day 22 - Favorite song from the 90s

This is the most difficult one for me. I love 90's music and I loved so many genres back then too.

After much deliberation I am going with....

Day 22:



Difficult era to pick from, since it was the one I grew up in. Changed my selection since I don't think I heard it IN the 90s...
