Cover Song: Deadsy (Rolling Stones)- Paint It Black

Paint It Black (Remastered) by Deadsy

Ever since Deadsy announced their return, I’ve gone back to their albums and I’ve found so many awesome songs I forgot about as well as ones I’m now really getting into. As much as I dig their album Commencement, I keep finding myself drawn more and more into their album, Phantasmagore. Recently, the band released a new remastered version of the album. This version features longer versions of the songs as well as a bonus track. While on my re-discovery of Deadsy, I actually forgot about that their version of The Rolling Stones classic “Paint It Black.” This cover is tremendous. It’s got a very Deadsy sound to it thus making it its own. Stoked for the new Deadsy album, Subterfuge

Those 90’s Songs: The Verve- Bitter Sweet Symphony

I’m sure we all have certain songs that are forever in your head. Doesn’t matter the genre or anything, they just pop up from time to time. This morning while getting ready for work I heard a strange beat in my house and then the next thing I knew, The Verve’s “Bitter Sweet Symphony” started playing in my head and there I was singing along. Since the songs release in 1997, it’s been stuck in my head. The more you listen to the song too, you really start to realize how great of a song it is as well as the lasting impact it’s had. It’s also a very quintessential song of the 90’s and should be celebrated as such. One of the coolest things involving the publishing of this song actually happened recently too. Mick Jagger and Keith Richards of The Rolling Stones, signed over all their publishing for Bittersweet Symphony. Finally giving songwriter Richard Ashcroft the credit he deserves. Even as far back as 1999, Keith Richards was quoted as saying ¬†“I’m out of whack here, this is serious lawyer shit. If the Verve can write a better song, they can keep the money.”

No matter what though, we can all agree this is a great song and very 90’s!
