Cover Song: Covert Stations (The Psychedelic Furs) Love My Way

There are certain people and voices that when I think of particular songs I can hear that person’s voice singing it. A couple weeks back I got a message from a favorite vocalist of mine that I’ve written about quite a few times. Craig Cirinelli (Damn, This Desert Air, Depsite The Raven, Hidden Cabins) told me about this new project he’s working on called Covert Stations, that explores different songs from the 70’s and 80’s and puts his and a collaborative spin on them. The first song released is “Love My Way” by The Psychedelic Furs. And funny enough, when I got to what song it was and clicked the link, I knew instantly that the vocals on this were gonna rock. Interestingly on this song, the drums were provided by Larry Suglio of the band Digicide, who were one of the early bands of the week featured on Audioeclectica. The Quality Of Mercury guitarist Jeremiah Rouse rounds out the collaborative band on this one. The cover itself is a good one. It’s got this cool atmospheric moodiness in a fun 80’s playful way, especially with the keyboards. The guitars add a cool accent to it, layering the synths and giving it more texture.

Classic Soundtracks: The Wedding Singer

The Wedding Singer is one of those movies that no matter when it’s on, it’s always a fun movie to watch. It’s aged well and the jokes are still funny. One other thing about the movie that has always been great is the music. The 80’s had some really good music and some that was well, lets just say, it was crap. One of the fun parts of The Wedding Singer was the ability for them to poke some fun at the music of the time. Either way, the soundtrack to the movie is a classic and it’s perfect for your 80’s themed parties or when you just want to have a good time. Songs by David Bowie, New Order, The Psychedelic Furs, Depeche Mode, The Smiths, and Billy Idol are just a few of the greats that appear on the soundtrack. Plus the two songs that Adam Sandler sing in the film are included and both of those are actually quite well done, especially “Somebody Kill Me.”
