Your Wednesday Monday is a cover of Simon & Garfunkle’s Wednesday Morning, 3 A.M. I don’t know who these ladies are, but this is a lovely rendition of the piece.

So, I’m trying to crank out a bunch of Mondays ahead of time, because the next couple weeks are going to be crazy. So I’m going to do a seven-week series of songs that are covers of songs that have the name of a day of the week in the title.

We’ll start off with a Relient K cover of the Bangle’s Manic Monday.

See you Wednesday.

So, Modest Mouse can be a bit of an acquired taste. The vocal quality is a bit… odd. That being said, if it’s something you don’t really enjoy, I do recommend trying to push through, because it is a sound that really does grow on you. And, once it has, the whole interesting sound that they build up is really pretty awesome. Today’s update is a particular favorite of mine, and another in our ongoing series of songs that have music videos that are as good as the song.

See you Wednesday.

I’ve been on a really big Regina Spektor kick lately. She has a really lovely voice, and the music has this incredible, unique sound. So enjoy, Minions, I’ll see you Wednesday.

As a warning – this video is super weird and also contains some cartoon gore. That being said, I think it’s awesome.

I will confess to mostly picking this song for the video, which contains so many geeky references it’s hard to believe. Still, the song is pretty awesome, a super catchy number that keeps getting stuck in my head. And the two combined are pretty awesome.

Music Monday # 21 – And I Feel Fine

Cheer up, rapture people. You were wrong, but at least it’s not the end of the world…

(Joke shamelessly stolen from my little sister)

R.E.M.’s original version of “It’s The End of the World As We Know It” can be found here, but I thought I’d highlight a couple covers because there are a freaking million of them.

We open up with Great Big Sea’s rendition. This one’s notable, because, while the original is sung at a pretty quick clip, GBS manages to speed it up to frankly insane levels.

The other version we’ll highlight today is by Julia Nunes (Who we’ve talked about before.) and Lauren O’Connell. (Who we’ll almost certainly talk about in the future.) It’s pretty great.

And, like I said, there are a million covers of this song. If you have some more time, you could listen to versions of this song by The Suicide Machines, No Doubt, and even a string quartet.

Enjoy, and I’ll see you Wenesday.

I had a good weekend, and this feels appropriate today. How was your weekend?

I know a lot of my Minions are of the dice-rolling dragon-slaying persuasion, so today’s song is for you.

So this is set to the tune (such as it is) of “Like a G6″ by Far East Movement. You couldn’t imagine more wildly diverging song topics. I mean, G6 is apparently about drugs, alcohol, and airplanes. D6 is about Dungeons and Dragons, which, to be fair, occasionally involves drugs and alcohol, but never airplanes. Airships, griffons, pegasi, flying space boats, and draconic mounts of various descriptions, but never airplanes.

I was unsure what to post this week, so I asked some friends. They gave me a million suggestions. This isn’t one of them, but it somehow got stuck in my head anyways.

Honestly, I’m not really sure why a song about a girl who likes to go to bars and get drunk is this catchy. Life is full of its little mysteries.
