  1. Great instrumentals. Only criticism is the vocalist. He has a nice voice, but he doesn’t lay back the beat at all. Loses a lot of soul in the vocal performance when he doesn’t lay it back all funklike.

    I absolutely HATE it when jazz musicians use the term “that sounds too white,” but…..

    I tried to recommend George Barnett’s cover to BB: http://youtu.be/s6NDY8FSr9M which I’m sorry…blows this one out of the water.  And some.  George’s own music is also amazing.

  3. Nice. Adding them to the post!

       Thank you *so* much!  I love the cover – particularly that he plays all the instruments and did the video and production himself.  He’s a 19 year old English singer songwriter and his own work is really worth checking out on his YouTube stream.

    And if you listen to them both at the same time, you hear the secret message!

    (make sure to start George Barnett when San Cisco hits 1:17)

    I prefer Alan Partridge’s instrumental cover which, naturally, uses only air for instrument

    The kid doing it all himself is better than the original.  He even sings it a little higher.

       If you like his cover, please check out his original work – like Where the Devil Sleeps… I’ve been a fan for a couple of years, it’s been astounding to me that it’s taken so long for the world in general to catch up and see how great a musician he is: http://youtu.be/A4N3S9a_Jqs  There have been a couple of comments on the YouTube stream I’ve liked a lot.  One said “All the people in this band look the same” and another “Didn’t Daft Punk do a cover of this…?”

    The second band is hella tight.
    The top version is just bland.  Sorry.
