I'm boring.  Simon&Garfunkle, Carly Simon, Joan Baez, later Beatles...

But I'm eclectic.  Classical, Electronica, Heavy Metal, Broadway.  Just not much "new".

I'm on board with most of those.  But just as my DVD rack has Airplane, Amadeus and Andromeda Strain all next to each other, so my CD rack has Bach (J.S.), Bach (P.D.Q.), Beatles, Black Book Band and Brubeck... as well as Gershwin, Getz, Goodman and the Grateful Dead, or while I'm at it, Lehrer, Little Feat, Lynyrd Skynyrd and Lyttelton.

Eclectic is good.  :)

Do you like tribute albums?  Like different artists doing Beatles or Elton John?  I think they are fascinating.

I run hot and cold on those -- probably more on the warm side than not.  I love You are not allowed to view links.

Register or Login is a fascinating set of Beatles covers ranging from the sublime to the ridiculous.  And The Byrds sometimes seemed only a bit more than a glorified Dylan cover band.

And there are certain artists that are able to take a cover and just about make it their own -- the Dead did that a lot, and the Byrds with Dylan, of course, and k.d. lang also stands out, considering her versions of Cohen's 'Hallelujah', Young's 'Helpless', and her work with and after Roy Orbison.

I find covers fascinating in and of themselves, because there's often more in a song than even the songwriter thought there was.  Go on YouTube some time and look up all the covers of Bonnie Dobson's "Morning Dew".  It's got about as weird a set of major covers as you could ask for -- the Dead's improvisational masterpiece and the tight and driving Jeff Beck/Rod Stewart version are probably the two best known, but it was also tackled by the Allman Brothers, Nazareth, DEVO, Lulu, Robert Plant, and Long John Baldry, among others.

Evan Duffy's covers of Deadmau5 songs might be the most beautiful music ever created.

I finally got this earworm out of my head!  I couldn't remember anything about it but the beat and the fact that my brother had played it once.  I had him go through hundreds of songs on his playlist till he finally hit the right one.
