Shoot’in The Tube:: Did I Hear That Live Recently?

Well, I’ve gone to several shows in my past and nothing is cooler than when a band you’re checking out busts out a really cool cover of a song that you may remember in passing but may have forgotten how good that song was – One’s that come to mind are Crowded House doing a quick on-the-spot version of The New Seeker’s 70’s popculture hit “I’d Like To Teach The World To Sing” – at recent show at The Beacon Theater in NYC August ’07; The Lemonheads rocking out Blondie’s “Dreaming” at Coachella 2007; or even one I remember from a few years ago – Fountains Of Wayne (pre- “Stacy’s Mom) doing Stephen Bishop’s 1977 hit “On And On” in DC’s 9:30 Club December 1999 – lets take a look at those originals – aren’t they so good?
