Covering Your Big Black Butt

A couple weeks back, Nina Gordon’s cover of NWA’s Straight Outta Compton got promoted to my ‘Getting Things Done’ smart playlist.

I’m a sucker for a good genre-bending cover tune – Ever since Faith No More covered the Commodores’ Easy (still a classic in my book) and the Vandals’ cover of Summer Lovin’. Then there’s the Gourd’s cover of Gangsta Lean and Gin n Juice.

This evening, I heard Jonathan Coulton cover Baby Got Back. If you haven’t – heard anything by J.C. yet, this is the place to start. It’s a thing of beauty.
