Way back when A Perfect Circle released their covers album eMOTIVE, there was an edition that also included an additional disc entitled aMOTION. This disc was all remixed version of their songs. There has always been one that has stood out to me over the years and that is the Tilling My Grave mix of “Weak and Powerless.” This version was remixed by Danny Lohner (former Nine Inch Nails memeber and for a time was a part of A Perfect Circle during the Thirteenth Step era) and it was also featured on the soundtrack for the first Underworld movie. Anyways, this version always seemed to have more “balls” to it and that gave it a much “heavier” vibe. Another interesting note is that this version features work by Wes Borland and Josh Eustis.

Cover Thursday: A Perfect Circle (Marvin Gaye)- What’s Going On

I woke up in the mood to listen to A Perfect Circle. While listening, I had the strange want to listen to their eMotive album. When I got to their version of Marvin Gaye’s “What’s Going On,” I thought this is the one I’m posting for the week. The original is still amazing and will hold for generations to come. A Perfect Circle did a solid job with it. It’s quite interesting how much a song written in the 70’s still resonates with the world today.
