“Paranoid Android” gets covered again … and again …

Did Weezer start this “Paranoid Android” cover madness? Not sure why, but as of late this song has been popping up all over the place including a pretty cool YouTube mashup version where dozens of people recorded themselves playing the song and then somebody taking bits and pieces of each performance and making one video out of it.

A few weeks ago I checked out Matthew Mayfield as he kicked off a short run of tour dates in Columbus, Ohio (drove 12 hours from Alabama just to play the show) but he didn’t cover “Paranoid Android” that night – didn’t even know he had it in his back pocket. But, here is his pretty faithful-to-the-original version.

“Round and Round”: Ariel Pink vs. PS22 Chorus

Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti’s “Round and Round” was one of 2010’s standout indie-rock singles with it’s ’80s new wave influence. Though there never was an official video for the song, some enterprising person matched the music up with film clips from the Jamie Lee Curtis movie “Perfect”. Meanwhile, some hip music teacher gets all Glee with his 5th grade choir and teaches them songs that are way better than any songs my kids are taught in elementary school.
