Got myself another iTunes gift card for Christmas this year, and I’ve decided that I’m going to spend some of that money on songs from the 2009 Coverville Countdown. That’s the top 40 cover songs as voted by the listeners. This one, a cover of Earth Wind & Fire’s “September” by Pomplamoose, came in at #19 but it may be my favorite. Alas, embedding has been disabled, so you’ll have to click the link to watch it. And you really should, because it’s very cool, and as they say in the notes:
This cover is a VideoSong, a new medium with 2 rules:
1. What you see is what you hear (no lip-syncing for instruments or voice).
2. If you hear it, at some point you see it (no hidden sounds).
If you like what you hear, there’s a link to a free MP3 download on their MySpace page. Which means I didn’t even have to spend my iTunes money to get it. I’ll save that for some of their other music. Now go check them out.
