I agree...... HATE it!! The Smashing Pumpkins doing Landslide that is......

I love the idea of muscling up "Little Lies." It shows what a really good song it is, that it stands up to such a different interpretation than the original.

I absolutely love this performance until the two male divas show up halfway through the song. Introducing them really breaks the momentum of the song, and then their short little vocals are both horrible.

I'd like to see this band perform the song without those two ... that would be great.

You ALWAYS have the coolest unusual posts! I'm always thrilled when you post something...

Speaking of RRV, do you happen to have the 'It's Late' from the same show? I love the way they did it and would love to add THAT audio to my ipod...

Default Carolynne Good - Little Lies

The threads about David Cook's version of Little Lies reminded me of a cover that was done an a UK televsion talent show from a few years ago. It was called Fame Academy and is now (thankfully) long gone but check this out, especially the last 40 seconds or so when she does something a bit different....Stick with it...

Note: Ignore the stupid Stevie-like costuming and the backing track and just concentrate on her voice. The dumbass producers clearly didn't bother to check that it's a Chris song and in fact one of the judges actually referred to it in his comments as a Stevie Nicks song (Carolynne corrected him - good on her!)

I quite like this, see what you think. Here's the link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=znKjPzVqxLU

That wasn't too bad. Obviously not as good as the original but a good effort

I quite like the Ari Hest version - he gives it a slow gentle treatment.

I'm reminded of that joke from Statler & Waldorf (the Muppets)...

Ahh I liked that last number.

Oh yeah, why?

'Cause it was the last one.

*laughter*

Default Anna Ternheim - Little Lies

This might be the best Fleetwood Mac cover I've ever heard.

YOU should do a Little Lies cover, WildHearted! I'm sure it would be amazing as well!

Maybe I will one of these days!

But I can't compete with that. That was superb, and very inventive.

This is one of my favorite FM covers... not just a retread but a new interpretation... a sadder version than Christine's which is a lot more upbeat, but the lyrics lend themselves to it nicely.

I love it! But I still think Ari Hest did the best cover of not only Little Lies, but of any Fleetwood Mac song ever.

Default Christine Little Lies cover

With all the Christine love going around I thought I would post this amazing cover of Little Lies by Anna Ternheim:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X-3qOkEtml8


I think I've posted it before - but it deserves to be heard. Again.
