Once you’ve heard Flogging Molly’s “Every Dog Has Its Day” it’s impossible to hear the words “Halifax, Novia Scotia” without getting it stuck in your head.

True story.

So, if you read last Wednesday’s post you might recall that I mentioned The Raconteur’s album Consolers of the Lonely. You may also recall that I love it. This particular song is off that album. It also happens to be the end credits song to Zombieland, which is a movie I love.

Look, basically there’s lots of stuff I like here. You should like it too.

Do you ever wake up with a song in your head, and you haven’t heard that song in ages? This happens to me constantly. Today, it was this. Tank! is the theme song from Cowboy Bebop, the only anime I’ve ever watched all of. And the theme song is awesome. So, enjoy.

Minions, let me introduce you to Igor Presnyakov. In addition to having one of the coolest names ever, he’s also one of the most ridiculously talented guitar players ever. And we haven’t even gotten started on these arrangements. While most people are content to play the guitar part of a song when covering it on the guitar, Igor prefers to cover the entire instrumentation of a song on his one guitar. (He also sings occasionally, but rarely the whole song.) Igor’s YouTube account has (at the time of this post) 177 covers of songs across a huge range of genres from rock ballads like the one above to metal covers to classical tunes. Minions, I don’t often give you orders, but seriously, listen to the song above, and then head over to Igor’s YouTube account here and just dig in. You’ll thank me.

We did it, Minions. A cover for each day of the week, once a week, for seven weeks. Weeky. In any case, this is a band called 3rd Earth covering No Doubt’s Sunday Morning. The sound quality is… not great, but I love finding these little groups covering the songs. It’s fun.

For your Saturday Monday, Minions, here’s a live cover of Queen playing Elton John’s “Saturday Night’s Alright For Fighting.” Enjoy.

Also, a reminder that the poll to select the new Tuesday story is still open here. (Unless you’re reading this after Friday, July 29th, in which case, hello, future people.)

For your Friday Monday, Minions, here’s Colin Nagle covering Steely Dan’s “Black Friday.”

On a related note, Rebecca Black has made searching for songs with the word “Friday” in the title incredibly annoying. See you Wednesday!
