Music & More Challenge
7.) favorite DVD cover
I like the colors and the logo. I also like the hint at a forest in the background with the shafts of light coming through. I like Robin in the front with his hood up and the quiver of arrows on his back, and then the other members of the cast in an arrow formation behind him. If I had no idea what this program was about, I’d be intrigued by this cover.
and the Music question
favorite cover version of a song: Somewhere Over the Rainbow by Eric Clapton
This is one of those songs that I like all different kinds of versions of. This one is live, with a lot of Eric Clapton’s signature guitar sound, but I love how the audience gets involved by clapping too. It makes me feel good.
Somewhere over the rainbow, way up high,
There’s a land that I heard of once in a lullaby.
Somewhere over the rainbow, skies are blue,
And the dreams that you dare to dream really do come true.
and my other favorite cover, is a dark green fleece that I have to fight with my cats to use…

I thought of musical covers. And then realized that I couldn’t pick just one.
I’ll now have to give some thought to dvd covers.
I was having the same problem. I love musical covers! and then if you get technical about it, a lot of the best known songs are actually covers of other artists, so…
*putting on my music geek hat* 8-| Sometimes it seems to me that it’s much more common now than it was in some previous decades as far back as the 1960s. The idea of artists writing their own stuff is very 60s and very rock-based. It’s also true to a certain extent today with hiphop. Pop music is much more likely to include covers because the artists don’t necessarily write their own music.
That’s why it’s hard for me to choose. Is it the singer or the song?
and it’s always odd when a writer performs their own song after someone else has already made it popular. so it’s like, well it is their song so that’s how it’s supposed to be done, but I liked so-and-so’s interpretation better.
