Sweet Static

Yes, another mp3 blog. Trying to share what I like with the world. The music here is for sampling only and are up for a limited time. It's simple really you see. If you like the music then go out and support the artists. Buy a cd/mp3/eight track, make a request on radio, see them live, tell others about it. This way this wonderful medium hopefully won't be stomped on.

Location: Windsor, Ont, Canada

Sweet Static is an mp3 blog that allows me to share the music I love and also to point out other cool things around the internet that catch my attention. It is also a place where I can talk about my radio show by the same name, now on Thursday nights from 7:00 pm to 8:00 pm on CJAM 91.5 FM in Windsor, Ontario. Got something I should hear? Email me at sweetstatic @ gmail.com. All comments left here are emailed to my inbox, so you can get a hold of me that way also. You can also follow the show/me on twitter at sweetstaticcjam.

What's Your Favorite Cover

Got a message from the great Berkeley Place pointing out a poll he's running over there. He's trying to get a consensus of the best covers of the century so far. I guess that my headline for this entry is misleading (favorite as opposed to best)

So he's got some rules.

1. The song must be a recognizable cover (in other words, although Bruce Springsteen wrote “Light of Day,” he did it for Joan Jett, so neither of them could really have “covered” the song).

2. It must have come out after January 1, 2000.

3. It can be a live cover or a studio one, whatever you like.

There's also some prizes, so get going and work on your list. No deadline set up but I'd guess a week or so. I'm going to put some thought into this and I'll post my list up here in the next couple of days.

For full details head over here to Berkeley Place.
