classics reinterpreting classics

i'm a big fan of cover songs. not american idol-style karoake renderings, but when an artist takes a song and reinterprets it.

i always get random things in the mail, and this week it is the new CD from etta james.

i think we can all agree that she is a living legend. but i am not completely sure about this CD. she covers some interesting songs, and the results, in my opinion, are mixed. but you gotta love a risk taker.

etta james - purple rain

etta james - imagine

she also covers "i believe i can fly" and "what's going on."

so what do you think?

while not quite a classic, i saw this cover of a Three 6 Mafia song on suckapants.

american sneakers - try something
