Saturday video break: Got The Time

Song #91 on the Popdose Top 100 Covers list is “Got The Time”, originally by Joe Jackson, and covered by Anthrax. Yeah, I think these two are gonna sound a little different. Here’s the original:

Nice. I like Joe Jackson, but I can’t say I was familiar with that song. Here’s the Anthrax cover:

Not quite as different as I was expecting. Not really my style, but it’ll do. What was your preference?

    Anthrax’s version got pretty rave reviews from Joe Jackson himself. I remember going back through a lot of non-metal albums and trying to see what other songs might be ready for an Anthrax version after this came out. For better or worse, nothing off of Streisand’s “Broadway Album” seemed suitable for thrash. At least not with my limited compositional abilities. But it was a great tune that expanded the musical tastes of metalheads.

    And yes … very unpredictably, I opt for the Anthrax. Easily their best album.
