Prepare to be...wowed (Arcade Fire covers YYYs), scared (Jackie Chan music), spooked (Do They Know It's Halloween)
- Arcade Fire - Maps (Yeah Yeah Yeahs cover, real audio)
This is totally unexpected, but it works. What a great cover!
Thanks to BrooklynVegan and Said the Gramophone for the heads up. You can d/l the MP3 version at either site.
- Jackie Chan sings
Not exactly what you'd expect. Easy listening tripe. Have the mute button on standby.
- (Various Artists) The North American Halloween Prevention Initiative - Do They Know It's Halloween (shockwave)
Sounds like indie rock groups covering early Ministry / Thrill Kill Kult. Pretty neat stuff!
